Description

Tackling some of Formula One's most influential figures, Timothy Collings provides insights into Bernie Ecclestone, Max Moseley, Luca di Montezmolo, Alain Prost, Jackie Stewart, Ron Dennis, Frank Williams, Eddie Jordan and the rest. He offers an analysis of the Formula One paddock, explaining how it works, who runs it, how it makes money and what sort of people exist there. The place is tumbling with intrigue and interest. The men who run it are from all sorts of backgrounds, but they share the common interest of Formula One motor racing - and finding a way of successfully making money.show more
