Monaco - Reprint by Malcolm Folley (Paperback)
About this item
Celebrating the romance of F1 and motor racing, this definitive book about the Monaco Grand Prix tells the story of the world' most famous race through the people who know it best - the drivers.Featuring some of F1's biggest stars, including Bernie Ecclestone, Nico Rosberg, Damon Hill, Ross Brawn (Schumacher's old team boss who won the race with him), David Coulthard, as well as members of McLaren and Ferrari, Folley's book captures Monaco's, present and past, with a special focus on its most extraordinary race in 1996, when only three cars finished.An astonishing afternoon of high drama, in wet conditions, saw multiple accidents and mechanical failures eliminated favourites such as Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, Jean Alesi and Eddie Irvine. No Formula One race before, or since, has had fewer cars complete a grand prix and this in an era when 22 cars started. A plucky Frenchman, Olivier Panis won, and British drivers David Coulthard and Johnny Herbert finished behind him.
