THE MECHANIC: THE SECRET WORLD OF THE F1 PIT LANE
Author Marc Priestley Price £20 www.f1elvis.com
Mechanics’ tales have long been a rich seam for F1 story-telling and this author should have the material for a great book. Marc Priestley was at Mclaren from 2000-09, working firsthand with some of the decade’s best drivers during a fascinating era.
In recent years he has worked with the Sky Sports F1 production crew and is regularly on-screen too.
This is definitely the unvarnished perspective from the F1 frontline and it’s certainly an earthy read.
