Not much new here if you are an F1 fan...
on 9 March 2011
I had great hopes for this book but unfortunately there is very little that is new information here if you are an F1 fan and followed the events at the time as they unfolded. Yes the comparisons against 20 years ago are interesting but the real interest of this book is the year from hell for McLaren and the effect it had on the team. Most of the book is quotes taken from already published interviews with the main players at public press conferences. yes there are perhaps two unique transcripts of interviews that I hadnt read before but nothing like what I hoped for. Also there was no follow up with the main players after the year itself so no information about what has happened since to Stepney or Couglan, or in fact interviews with Ron Dennis etc. So Im sad to say I really cant recommend this book.
