Customer Review

on 7 July 2009
Working the Wheel is a great book for motor racing enthusiasts and gives a fascinating insight into life as a racing driver. Martin Brundle's writing is similar to his commentating style, easy to follow and lightly humorous. The book covers various racing circuits Martin has driven, how he feels about them, how he drives them and contains anecdotes about each one: having his hire car impounded at Imola, crashing the Toyota at Le Mans are just two.
I really enjoyed the book. After reading a chapter I would watch some footage of that circuit on You Tube to better understand what the driver was going through and why some corners and circuits are more challenging than others. I feel that, in some ways, this book is Brundle's attempt at an autobiography as he is too modest to write a whole book about just himself. It would be a real shame, however, if he didn't put pen to paper again as I would love to hear more about his career, from F3 with Ayrton Senna to winning the World Sportcar Championship and Le Mans and driving for 12 seasons in F1.

My wife, who has no interest in the sport cannot understand why I would want to read about the characteristics of turn 4 at Paul Ricard - which made me enjoy the book all the more!
