More About This Title Monaco
Featuring some of F1's biggest stars, including Bernie Ecclestone, Nico Rosberg, Damon Hill, Ross Brawn (Schumacher's old team boss who won the race with him), David Coulthard, as well as members of McLaren and Ferrari, Folley's book captures Monaco's, present and past, with a special focus on its most extraordinary race in 1996, when only three cars finished. An astonishing afternoon of high drama, in wet conditions, saw multiple accidents and mechanical failures eliminated favorites such as Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, Jean Alesi and Eddie Irvine. No Formula One race before, or since, has had fewer cars complete a grand prix and this in an era when 22 cars started. A plucky Frenchman, Olivier Panis won, and British drivers David Coulthard and Johnny Herbert finished behind him.
Malcolm Folley has over 39 years' experience as a staff writer on national newspapers, and was Chief Sports Reporter for the Mail on Sunday for over 22 years. He is the author of Senna Versus Prost.
"On no other modern circuit can the skill and commitment of a Grand Prix driver be observed at such close quarters and Malcolm’s book brings to life the most memorable exploits of our champion drivers and heroes from the Jazz Age to Modern Times in the delightful Springtime setting on the Cote d’Azur." —Design and Development Director, McLaren Racing, Neil Oatley
