Description

Reformatted in paperback with new interviews and information, this book gets behind the PR-speak to explore what Grand Prix drivers really think and feel. They talk with rare frankness on their hopes and fears, how they began racing and what forces them to continue, their crashes, emotions, survival techniques - and how racing compares with sex. In this book: Michael Schumacher outlines his philosophy and Eddie Irvine explores being alive; Kimi Raikkonen explains why he doesn't like being told what to do; Karl Wendlinger opens his heart over the 1994 Imola weekend; Johnny Herbert confesses to a fear of pushbikes; Mark Blundell talks about sensitivity; and Perry McCarthy explains why only other drivers can understand racing. It also contains insights about the drivers' mindset from motor racing coach John Stevens, sports psychologist Andrew Walton and the manager of Benetton's Human Performance Centre, Bernie Shrosbree.
