I was disappointed that Marc's book which is very well written by the way, did not cover the pit lane as I expected. Certainly we learn what life was like 'outside' of the garage in the mechanics rare time off. And the many Kimi fans will I'm sure enjoy the rare insights into his world. What was missing for me were the 'secrets of the pit lane' itself. There is little material covering the broader activity of the garage and pit lane during Grand Prix weekends, and mentions of Ron Dennis and Martin Whitmarsh in their race capacities are almost non-existent. There is however plenty from Marc's experience as a pit stop crew member and the stresses and strains and maybe that will be enough for most readers. Maybe I was expecting too much from the books sub title, others will I'm sure be well satisfied.
After hearing the author interviewed on the BBC, i purchased the book thinking it would be insightful and entertaining - unfortunately, it didn’t live up that.
It’s a perfectly pleasant read, but for me it lacked detail, wasn’t particularly amusing and finished rather flat - yes, there were a few nuggets - but overall not a huge amount you wouldn’t get from just following F1 during the period covered - and assuming there is a lot of partying, drunken misbehaviour and so on.
Worth the read for the Alonso vs Hamilton year (last quarter of the book). But other than that just watch Animal House. Exploits of childish mechanics and driver drinking too much and acting privileged. Can't believe McLaren didn't toss them all out on their ear. Better books are out there.
Behind the scenes insight into the lives of F1 drivers, owners, and executives, both on track & offtrack, seen from perspective of a team mechanic. Although it lets race fans see a limited glimpse into the personal lives & practical business dealings of the Formula 1 teams drive for the championship, the practical knowledge of engineers; mechanics is limited to brief roles how they prepare; set-about functioning specific tasks to win a race. A bit gossip. A bit garage. Not quite the checked flag.
If you are expecting a technical deep dive into what it takes to be a mechanic in F1 you will be disappointed. I mean Adrian Neweys book marries the technical side and the experiential side very well. However this is more of Elvis' experience in F1 and a good part of it deals with his partnership with Kimi and the 2008 season when McLaren won the championship. Entertaining read.
A very light & frothy recounting of McLaren’s F1 team from inside the pit crew. Interesting more because of the profiles of Kimi, Hamilton, & Alonso than any particular insights offered by the author. No technical motor racing info at all, which disappointed me.
