Over 30 years later, Denis Jenkinson's book has become a classic, highly valued for its historical perspective & views into the personalities of drivers who today seem larger than life. This release of The Racing Driver contains much new material, including a new preface by the author himself. The new foreword is by Stirling Moss, who won the 1955 Mille Miglia with Jenkinson at his side. Also new are two appendices. The first is a discussion the author had with Ayrton Senna on the psychological attributes of the modern race driver. In the second, Doug Nye, author & close friend, provides a final tribute to Denis jenkinson. The Racing Driver will appeal to all sports car enthusiasts, particularly those interested in vintage & historic racing. It belongs on the bookshelf beside Taruffi's The Technique of Motor Racing, which it supplements without repeating.

Excerpt: Kimi-Matias Raikkonen (Finnish pronunciation: born 17 October 1979) is a Finnish racing driver. He drives in Formula One for Lotus. After nine seasons racing in Formula One, in which he won the 2007 Formula One World Drivers' Championship, he competed in the World Rally Championship from 2010-2011. Raikkonen entered Formula One as a regular driver for Sauber-Petronas in 2001. Having previously only raced in very junior open-wheel categories, he was given his Super Licence from the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) after a performance delivery promise by his team boss, Peter Sauber. He joined McLaren Mercedes in 2002, and became a title contender by finishing runner-up in the 2003 and 2005 championships to Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, respectively. Raikkonen's 2003 and 2005 seasons were plagued by severe unreliability from his McLaren cars. Raikkonen switched to Ferrari in 2007, becoming the highest paid driver in motor sport with an estimated wage of $51 million per year. In turn his move to Ferrari saw him secure his first Formula One World Drivers' Championship, beating McLaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso by one point, as well as becoming one of the very few drivers to win in their first season at Ferrari. In 2008, he equalled the record for fastest laps in a season for the...

AUTHOR OF SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, LIFE TO THE LIMIT In his 17 years as a Formula 1 driver, Jenson Button has picked up a thing or two about how to do the job properly. Sure, you need to be able to drive a car fast - and Jenson is on hand to pass on a few tricks of the trade here - but you also need to know the real rules for making it to the top. Like, how to tell a multiple F1 champion they need to check their blind-spot. What the difference is between a helmet and a hat, and indeed a 'helmet-hat'. How to practise your champagne spray ahead of the big day. Why it is never, ever, under any circumstances a good idea to buy a yacht. And how to face down your team when you've just stacked their multi-million-pound car into a wall during practice. But 'JB' (nicknames in F1 run the full range from initials to, well, just using first names) doesn't stop there. HTBAF1D (catchy) lifts the lid on the people, the places, the weird rituals, the motorhomes, the media, the cars, the perks and the disasters. Join Jenson as he reveals how not to race a stupid big truck, why driving Le Mans is like having five shots of tequila before lunch, and what to do when you finally hang up your helmet-hat.

'HILARIOUS AND OUTRAGEOUS' CHRIS EVANS THE HILARIOUS FULL-THROTTLE MEMOIR FROM ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHARACTERS IN UK MOTOR RACING Two-time championship-winning and record-breaking racing driver, Jason Plato is a living, breathing example of what you shouldn't do if you want to become a professional racing driver: DO NOT: · Steal a JCB in Monaco and end up in prison there - twice · Kill Bernie Ecclestone (almost) · Choose fags and booze over the gym · Give Prince Charles the finger on the M42 · Make enemies with a 6ft 6" rival who is a black belt in everything Since joining the Williams Touring Car team in 1997 he has had more race wins than Lewis Hamilton and Stirling Moss, competed in more races than Jenson Button and set the largest number of fastest laps ever. But he's also a rule breaker who has had more than his fair share of near-death experiences, drunken escapades and more. There is nothing sensible, predictable or considered about Jason. But this is how he became a racing legend. ______ LONGLISTED FOR THE TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AUTOBIOGRAPHY AWARD 'As entertaining as watching him drive, a cracking read!'

According to the official Formula One website he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen." In 2009, a poll of 217 Formula One drivers conducted by the British magazine Autosport named Schumacher the second-greatest F1 driver of all time, behind Ayrton Senna. After beginning with karting, Schumacher won German drivers'...
