About the Author:

Grand Prix mechanic turned author, columnist, editor and television broadcaster, Steve Matchett is an exceptionally rare commodity - a commentator of genuine insight; a man that has prepared world championship-winning machinery with his own hands. Standing alongside Ross Brawn and Michael Schumacher, Matchett worked the pit lanes of the world's most challenging sport throughout all of Benetton's glory years. He is currently a contributor to F1 Racing magazine and technical analyst to North America's SPEED Channel, a key member of their broadcasting team. He is the author of Life in the Fast Lane, The Mechanic's Tale and The Chariot Makers, all of which have been highly praised.
