  • A different (but no less intriguing) view of F1

    Motorsport books are usually either written by drivers or journalists. After a lifetime of reading many flawed/egotistical/shallow histories and memoirs, Adrian Newey's is a breath of fresh air. While driver skill is obviously important (which is recounted by Newey) car design is as, or more, crucial. Structured around the cars Newey has designed since the 80s, this memoir captures the fortunes of the F1 and CART teams he was a part of, in context of seasons as a whole. Along with understandable technical descriptions of the cars he designed. But more than this, the drama of being part of a team, the highs and lows of being competitive (or not) and the politics of F1 are told with disarming honesty and wry humour. It also reads as sage advice on how to plan a career, from his groundbreaking decision to study aerodynamics is the late 70s, to seeking as broad experience as possible, to managing egos within organisations. And knowing when an organisation doesn't suit your goals, or way of working, and deciding it's time to try something new. Couldn't recommend more.
