Inside the Mind of The Grand Prix Driver (Paperback)
The psychology of the fastest men on earth: sex, danger and everything else
By: Christopher Hilton
A fascinating update to the well-received hardback edition of this penetrating look at how Grand Prix drivers think about ‘sex, danger and everything else’. The paperback edition passes a searchlight on Michael Schumacher preparing to try to beat the all-time record of World Championships and how his Ferrari team-mate Rubens Barrichello insists he isn’t intimidated by him – or anybody else. It examines how three former Grand Prix drivers had to abandon the habits of a lifetime – selfishness – and suddenly adjust their minds to becoming a team so they could challenge Le Mans. It probes the mental warfare between drivers Jacques Villeneuve and Jenson Button and the harsh environment a new generation of drivers is facing.
