Description

I would have loved loved loved this book if it was following the events of 2016 or 2021 because that is honestly a need. He has unbeatable records and such great race moments that would still give you goosebumps if you look back at them.

The test at Silverstone – only a year before I flew to Japan and China for the two Grands Prix that lifted me within reach of the title and then dashed my hopes – was the best week of my life at the time. It is about hard work, about my family’s sacrifices and determination, my dad’s huge support for me and many other people’s belief and kindness. Dad is my biggest supporter, and a fantastic father, without whom I may not have even discovered I had any talent for racing.I also liked to have additional context about some of the reasons behind the rivalries we see today (Fernando Alonso and The Piquets) and hearing about some of the controversies of 2007 from Lewis himself. While this is a great start for Lewis - the book was more of his super memory and his perspective but it was uninspiring and not captivating the reader by any means. We do everything we can together, and we always have done, but as I grow older and become more independent each year, I know that is probably going to change a bit – but not all that much. By the way Lewis is a amazing driver and never gives up and that's why I want to support him on his difficult journey.

Lewis has achieved so much since then but it was interesting to see what was in his mind over a decade ago - long before he became the sports second ever most successful driver.I have gained so much from driving and handling the car, set-up, tyre selection, strategy and the whole range of factors that can make a driver successful. From the start in Melbourne, which seems so long ago now, to the finish in São Paulo, I travelled through a phenomenal Formula One year, winning four races, finishing as runner-up in five, and battling for podium finishes in a few others, in my rookie season with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team. I soon got over that, though – thanks to my dad’s endless positive energy and example, and the McLaren team’s great spirit, not to mention a memorable team party organized by Vodafone on the Sunday night after that final race at Interlagos. Rather a shameless opportunity to cash in at the end of what was one of the best F1 seasons for years. However, living such an exciting life and in an environment where you have to win because everything else is a failure.

I wouldn’t recommend it to the average reader since it’s more focused on his first year in F1 than an autobiography but as a fan, it was great to get an inside look into how Lewis was experiencing things at the time.As soon as he was released, Nic was back on the racing circuit with us, his legs stretched out straight in front of him and plastered up to the groin.
