Book Description

May 2001
Lavishly illustrated and packed with new information, this book - from the author of Haynes's best-selling Michael Schumacher: Controversial Genius - takes the story up to the present with a detailed examination of Schumacher's career since joining Ferrari. It analyses the sublime races and the disgrace, and the complex Maranello culture, all pivotal in his fight to haul the Italian team back to the point where in 2000 it won its first Drivers' World Championship since 1979 and a second successive Constructors' World Championship. - Leading F1 personalities discuss Schumacher's true role in Ferrari's renaissance - the brilliance, the ruthlessness, the teutonic calm. - Sumptuous colour pictures of Schumacher on and off duty. - 1996, crashing on the first lap in Monaco, winning in a thunderstorm in Spain, and brilliant victories in Belgium and Italy. - 1997, winning in the wet at Monaco, gathering momentum in mid-season, through to the controversial crash with Jacques Villeneuve at Jerez. - 1998, the season-long shoot-out with Mika Hakkinen. - 1999, the battle for the World Championship, including the aftermath of the Silverstone shunt and the story behind Schumacher's return in Malaysia. - 2000, winning the first three races, losing ground to McLaren mid-season, and recovering to equal his existing record of nine wins in a season, en route to both the Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ferrari Years Review Oct. 29 2002
By Leo Lim
Format:Hardcover
I don't know but for some reason, I tend to finish Hilton's books in one sitting and this is no exception. This book chronicles the numerous frustrations the Ferrari team had to undergo before becoming the juggernaut they are today - too dominant in fact that it puts the existence of F1 itself under question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed Reading! Aug. 7 2001
Format:Hardcover
Hilton's book does an excellent job of introducing the reader into the integration of the best driver of the modern era into the most famous racing team of all time. His ability to gather and present information from all the relevant players (Ross Brawn, Jean Todt, and of course Michael himself) really gets the reader deep into the halls of Maranello. The books analysis of the various seasons is excellent as is his lap-by-lap breakdown of some of the key points of races. I've read this book a few times since purchasing it and I always discover something new. 5 STARS
