9780091900625: Working the Wheel

Martin Brundle first came to the public's attention when he raced wheel-to-wheel with Ayrton Senna and gave the great Brazilian the toughest challenge of his early career. A regular podium winner with Williams, McLaren, Jordan and Brabham, Brundle began commentating with Murray Walker in 1997. He is now ITV's main commentator and speaks to an estimated 40 million English-speaking people around the world. In this unique book the reader will have his armchair converted to the laid-down cockpit of a Formula One car and be swept around the world's classic motor racing circuits. He will experience the extraordinary sensations, the adrenaline and the atmosphere as told by the sport's best analyst. Together with F1's respected journalist, Maurice Hamilton, Brundle brings his infallible humour and insight, his experiences and opinion, to each of the circuits and its classic races. From the camber at Monaco, which will leave your wheels hanging in the air, to Melbourne and the dynamics behind the most dramatic crash of the decade. Encompassing such essential details as neck-snapping acceleration, smashing cars worth a quarter of a million and the amount of sweat a driver will lose in a race, this is a rare F1 book - funny, opinionated, evocative and dramatic.
