READ & DOWNLOAD º Burning Rubber READ ↠ SMALL-HOUSES.RU Î Charles Jennings Charles Jennings Î 1 READ & DOWNLOAD A fully updated turbo charged account of 60 years of Formula One endangering the lives of its drivers and thrilling its fans since 1950  Viewed rationally of course there was something not uite right about Gilles Villeneuve This is true of many if not all top sportsman one way or another but in Villeneuve's case it is hard to escape the conclusion that he was a natural both in the sense that he was naturally gifted as a driver; and that bits of his personal. This book is SO close to being an absolute must for all sports fans let alone motorsportF1 fans to read but for a fatal and unforgiveable amount of errors in itThe book starts off well It gives a brief histroy of each turbulent decade throughout the history of F1 and before and spends the odd chapter here and there focussing on a certain driver such as James Hunt or on rivalries between two drivers such as Senna v Prost But the you read the you wish the book was just well really There are entire seasons not mentioned legendary drivers who have only a fleeting mention both of these seem to feature unfortunately around Mika Hakkinen and his title winning seasons of 1998 1999 of which only a couple very brief sentances cover Hakkinen s titles whereas the focus of these years is on Schumacher re building Ferrari2005 is only mentioned as a flashback of sorts barely detailing the rise rebirth of Renault and the emergence of Fernando AlonsoHowever a book can only be so long and when covering the history of an entire sport and a sport such as F1 in particular must focus on certain things or risk doing justice to nothing at all It s just a shame the book wasn t another 20 pages long in order to ensure that these chapters of the history of F1 were coveredWhere this book lets itself down though is in the research Or maybe precisely the fact checking There are countless errors the ones that stand out the most areDetailing that Senna hit Prost at turn 1 in Suzuka in 1991 when both drivers were still driving for McLaren then a paragraph later saying that Prost had been uite correctly driving a Ferrari in 1991 Nigel Mansell winning his title in 1994 Then a few pages later correctly saying that he had won his title in 1992Saying that Silverstone is in Leicestershire when it s in Northamptonshire or Buckinghamshire depending on what part of the circuit you re standing on These are small things but small facts and inconsistencies that should have been picked up during the proof reading of the material before going to press Whether these have been altered in subseuent editions I have no idea however there were many similar silly little errors dotted throughout the bookThese things are compounded by the authors far too often use of French to give gravitas to his book It was as though he was writing a book for sports fans who happened to have a masters from Cambridge The all too often use was unnecessary and clunkyThe book is by no means a disaster or a failure It s a very good read for F1 fans and motorsport fans alike For both the casual viewr or like me the die hard fan But because of it s minor but often issues it will probably never become a must read for sports fans in general Shame really Because it started so well and had so much potential In a way it s like the history of F1 littered with teams and drivers who were so close yet not uite close enough
