Mika Hakkinen

Mika: A Biography of Mika Hakkinen

Mika: A Biography of Mika Hakkinen
Alan Henry / Paperback / April 2000

It had long been accepted within the Formula 1 community that McLaren's Mika Hakkinen was one of - if not the - fastest driver in the world. Nevertheless, doubts remained over whether this quiet, modest Finn had both the consistency and the temperament to put together a season-long championship challenge. The 1998 season destroyed that perception, and silenced even Hakkinen's most vociferous critics. His defeat of double World Champion Michael Schumacher in the race for the 1998 title confirmed him as a genuine winner and a worthy champion. It also set him up as favourite to retain the crown in 1999. Alan Henry, one of the most authoritative journalists in the F1 paddock, tells the inside story of Mika's extraordinary Formula 1 career, including his miraculous return to the cockpit after his life threatening crash at Adelaide in 1995. He describes the Finn's determined return to form and fitness in 1996; his first Grand Prix win at the end of 1997 and his triumphant 1998 season. Henry also examines in depth Hakkinen's battle with both Ferrari drivers, Jordan's Heinz-Harald Frentzen and his own team-mate, David Coulthard, to retain the crown in 1999.

With the text due for completion as the 2000 season gets underway and published at the start of the European season, MIKA will be provide the most authoritative and up-to-date account of the career of the man many now regard as the finest driver in the world, bar none.


Mika Hakkinen: Doing What Comes Naturally

Mika Hakkinen: Doing What Comes Naturally - Also from the UK - Canada
Christopher Hilton / Paperback / December 1997

Mika Hakkinen is one of the fastest drivers in Formula 1 - in his first race for Marlboro Mclaren in 1993, he outqualified Ayrton Senna. He is also known for his frequent crashes. The cheerful Finn's racing ability and dogged optimism helped him hold the McLaren team together through their recent traumas, and to fight back after a near-fatal accident to take fifth place in the 1996 drivers' World Championship. This work is his full story. It includes an in-depth review of 1996 and the start of the 1997 season with expert analysis of the new McLaren chassis and Mercedes engine.

Lewis Hamilton: Champion Of The World  -  Also from the UK - Canada
Frank Worrall / Paperback / October 2009

Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal and the loss of McLaren's constructors' points, bestselling sports author Frank Worrall describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world.

Lewis Hamilton: My Story Also from the UK - Canada
Lewis Hamilton / Paperback / November 2007

Lewis Hamilton's explosive arrival on the Formula 1 scene has made front-page headlines. In My Story, for the first time Lewis opens up about his stunning debut season, including the gripping climax to the 2007 F1 World Championship, as well as his dad Anthony, his home life and his early years. The only book with the real story, as told by Lewis. In his first season in F1, Lewis Hamilton has thrilled the world of motor racing. With victories in Canada, America and Hungary and Japan he led the World Drivers' Championship, right up to the last race of the season. But bare statistics alone do scant justice to the amazing impact Lewis Hamilton has had on the sporting landscape this year.

Lewis Hamilton: The Story So Far Also from the UK - Canada
Garteh Rogers / Paperback / October 2007

2007 witnessed the greatest debut Grand Prix season in history, as McLaren's 22-year-old novice Lewis Hamilton set the sporting world alight with his extraordinary on-track exploits. The buzz surrounding this young man had been growing, but no one could have been prepared for the way he exploded onto the Formula One scene with podium finishes in his first nine races, including wins in Canada and the United States, to become the youngest person ever to top the drivers' championship.Allegations of illicit team orders in Monaco, and a cloak-and-dagger espionage scandal involving McLaren and rivals Ferrari have added spice to a season in which F1 has been gloriously thrust back into the limelight, while the sometimes fractious relationship between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso has also made headlines. But the biggest story of all has been Hamilton himself, and many within F1 are now predicting that this young man will dominate the scene for years to come. In this book, author Gareth Rogers chronicles the rise of British sport's new superstar, charting his early days and his progression from karts to cars, followed by the whirlwind success of his record-breaking first season.

Damon Hill

Damon Hill: Through the eyes of Damon Hill

Damon Hill: Through the eyes of Damon Hill Also from the UK - Canada
Damon Hill / Hardcover / August 1999

F1: Through the Eyes of Damon Hill is the dramatic behind-the-scenes story of the world of Formula One racing. It is a story of global proportions, deep human feelings and sporting magnificence which sweeps from the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne through to the grand finale in Japan, where the nine-month season ends. In his own words, Hill charts the roller-coaster emotions and excitement of the marathon 16-race Grand Prix circus. He describes the strains, and pressures behind the garage doors; the massive effort required to revive a title challenge with his new Jordan team, the fears and thrills. Brilliantly illustrated, here is the world's fastest, most seductive - and expensive - sport as it really is. From the clamour and glamour of the pit lane to the privacy of the motor home, Damon Hill describes what it feels like to compete with Schumacher, Coulthard, Villeneuve and others for the 1998 Formula One World Championship. This is no 'Diary of a Season' fanzine but an intensely personal, thematic account of the most seductive sport of all - its rivalries the crucial importance of technology, and the pencil-thin margin between the chequered flag and failure.

Damon Hill: My Championship Year Also from the UK - Canada
Damon Hill, Jon Nicholson (Photographer) / Hardcover / 1997

Damon Hill, the world's No 2 Formula One racing driver (after Michael Schumacher) in 1994 and 1995, believes that third time will be lucky in 1996, especially as his foe and rival has transferred to the Ferrari team this year. This book not only provides a guide to Damon Hill's 1996 Grand Prix season, but it also studies the world of the Formula One driver and a gruelling season of 16 circuits spread across the globe. It describes the heady feelings of euphoria after a victory or the profound disappointment of defeat, and captures the passion and the pressure of the most high-profile, most glamorous and most dangerous sport of all.
