This study reveals the make-up, organization and, above all, the human commitment of a top Formula One team. The book's fly-on-the-wall treatment provides a look at the everyday life at Benetton and within Formula One generally. It traces Benetton's strategy starting from the late autumn of 1992 when the dust had barely cleared on the previous season, and describes the new developments on the car and the test programmes, often carried out on bleak days far removed from the hype and glamour of high summer Grand prix. Benetton came third in the constructors' championship in 1992 behind Williams and McLaren. The book takes the reader behind the scenes at the team's state-of-the-art factory, and on the road with the race crew for the World Championship, contested from South Africa to South Australia. With Michael Schumacher, the brightest talent to emerge for years and Riccardo Patrese, one of the most experienced drivers in Formula One - at the wheels of the newly designed cars, expectations are high for the coming season. Other books by Derick Allsop include "The British Racing Hero", "In the Driving Seat" (with Nigel Mansell), "Driven to Win" (with Nigel Mansell) and "Mansell and Williams: The Challenge for the Championship".
