5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Irvine Jordan on September 21, 2007
Format: Paperback
You may be forgiven for thinking that this book is more about Martin and F1 then it is anything else. Well you'd be wrong. This is for the serious F1 fans only and being one for 27 years I still found plenty of excuses to put it down. It's not that I don't like Martin Brundle, because I do, that's the point! I thought this was all about him and his racing career instead it's a step by step account of 18 race tracks around the world. Only a certain amount of how a chicane bends and how rough the asphalt is can be found interesting.
Hopefully Martin will bring out a biography at some point because lets face it: with 12 years F1 driving and nearly 10 behind the microphone the man has plenty of stories to tell.
