Description

This long-awaited memoir by a key figure in Formula 1 includes trenchant observations on the 12 World Champions with whom he worked at Team Lotus.

Peter Warr was best known for his management of the Lotus Formula 1 team, where he was one of Colin Chapman's closest allies as well as the man who nurtured the early Formula 1 careers of Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell. Frank, informative and beautifully written, his memoir remained unfinished at the time of his death in 2010, but the bulk of his work was done and was published in 2012, complete with an introduction and epilogue by Simon Taylor. This long-awaited inside story, which is of particular interest for its author's thoughts on Chapman and all the drivers he worked with, is a 'must read' for any Formula 1 enthusiast.

The author

The late Peter Warr, who died in October 2010, had two spells of management with Team Lotus: 1969-76 and 1981-89. After Colin Chapman died in December 1982, he became the team's boss and in the years that followed his drivers included Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna.
