The Mechanic's Tale Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Essential reading for anyone interested in life behind-the-scenes at Formula One. Formula One Grand Prix mechanic Steve Matchett takes the reader on a compelling journey through his life in the pit-lane, from his beginnings as a young apprentice, through his time at Ferrari and BMW to his later success with Benetton.

He gives eye-witness views of the great drivers, including Michael Schumacher, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.

He also talks of key Benetton personalities, and explains how the team was transformed into a strong, competitive organisation, winning three World Championships.

His determination and frustration in trying - and eventually succeeding - to break into the high-pressure world of Formula One leaps off the page.
