Behind the Pit Wall
Behind the Pit Wall
My Life in Formula One and Beyond
Bob McMurray has seen just about everything in motorsport - from the years working behind the pit wall with the McLaren team and the high-octane adventure that was A1GP to Scott Dixon winning the Indianapolis 500. If you want facts and figures, go to the Internet - you won't find them here. Instead, the book is more like a bar-room conversation about Bob's 30-odd years in Formula One. All the interesting stuff. Witness to cataclysmic battles, both on and off the track, when political and personal egos clashed, he saw the bloody birth of modern Formula One. He was there, on the inside, as the world of motorsport morphed into a financial behemoth, leaving the racetracks of the world littered with severely crushed egos and destroyed careers. Witness to paddock revolution, driver tantrums, spying, industrial espionage, intrigue and more scandal than you could poke a stick at, he also experienced a degree of friendship, fun, camaraderie and team bonding you'd never expect to find in a cut-throat world of high achievers. In an earthy look at the drivers who risked it all, the Machiavellian machinations of the businesses running motor sport and what it was like to be part of the growing pains - good and bad - Bob McMurray tells it like it was as Formula One became a massive global sport.
