9780091932688: Williams F1: The Greatest Story in British Motor-racing Told by Those Who Were There

Founded in 1977 by Sir Frank Williams and Patrick Head, Williams F1 represents the last of the true independent teams; a company devoid of corporate dogma and run by enthusiasts driven by a love of racing and the satisfaction that comes with beating the rest of the world. Since its first Grand Prix victory at Silverstone on 14 July 1919, the team has won a further 116 GPs, delivered seven World Champions--among them Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill--and won nine Constructors Championships. This is the definitive history of the Williams team as told by those who have worked for Williams past and present. At the heart of the book are Sir Frank's personal recollections, along with memories and anecdotes from those at every level: from the shop floor to the upper strata of management; from the mechanics and machinists to the drivers--Mansell, Hill, Alain Prost, and Alan Jones among them. It relates both the incredible highs of winning against the odds while never shying the terrible lows--the tragic deaths of Piers Courage in 1970 and Ayrton Senna in 1994 among them. Conveying the history and soul of a unique band of people, "Williams F1" explains exactly why the Williams team is held in more affection than any other team in Britain, if not the world.
