Ferrari books are hitting the shelves in a torrent. Blink, and another is upon them.
This work by Nick Garton charts Ferrari’s 10-year course from Formula One wastrel to top achiever, telling the story of how this sleeping giant was turned around so that its massive resource could finally be used to gather the wins and titles that had been absent for so long. Yes, it’s a book that champions the impact of Ferrari’s power base of Jean Todt, tech gurus Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne, and most of all, Michael Schumacher.
Garton retells a tale that has been much told, but he makes his mark by dropping in side elements on Mararxello, the test team and even on spying. BSJ
