Eddie Irvine's first season with Ferrari was always going to represent a challenge for him as he struggled to get to grips with a temperamental car and to come to terms with being in the shadow of team-mate and double World Champion Michael Schumacher. In this book, Irvine demonstrates his renewed appetite for the battle on the track as he plays his full part in Ferrari's renaissance as a serious pretender to the Formula One Constructor's throne. Among the 1997 season's highlights, Irvine explains his reaction to the criticism of his aggressive style of driving which led to a pile-up in the Australian Grand Prix, and how his personal goals have changed since his debut season for Ferrari.

Eddie Irvine is a breath of fresh air in the serious world of Formula 1. Selected to drive for Ferrari alongside double world champion Michael Schumacher, the 1996 season proved to be a frustrating period for the Irishman as he struggled to get to grips with a temperamental car and live up to the high expectations of the media and the tifosi.
But as he demonstrates in his fascinating insight into the world of Ferrari, Irvine's flamboyant personality and aggressive driving style meant he was never far from the action, both on and off the track.
In this fully updated paperback edition, Irvine lifts the lid on his attempts to prove his worth at Ferrari and recalls all the crashes and crises, thrills and spills of the 1997 season.
