Schumacher driven to extremes

Well in the era of 1980s onwards we have seen some of the greatest people play some games, they have tried to emulate the best of the best till then….

A few who come to the mind are

tiger woods trying to emulate jack nicklaus

Maradona versus the great pele

Sachin against the the don himself Donald bradman

And so is Schumacher trying against fangio the greatest racer till date

Well in the past few years form 2000 to 2002 we have seen the domination of the

Scarlet red fever known as Ferrari and their driver Schumacher.

But this book represents the time between1996 to 1999 when schumi joined them

James allen has done a fine job telling us what is it at Ferrari ,schumi ,the way they work and more u would love to know

It represents the time when schumi had won back to back titles for the benetton team in 94 and 95

Then why did he join Ferrari in 96 a team which was in doldrums a team which hadn’t won a word title for 15 years

For the money no for the tradition of the prancing horse(logo of Ferrari)

This book finds out the working secrets of Ferrari over a period of two complete years in 98 and 99.

It also gives us insight of schumi the way his mind works when he is in the car

It gives us the minute details why he is the best.

And why the other drivers love to hate him .

The book makes us feel

the frustration,

the tradition

the pain

the perspiration

the love

the belive in ones self

the teamwork

of the Ferrari team working behind schumi to achieve one and only one goal the “championship”

the period of gloom over this time and immense controversy following behind the team

the politics of formula 1 the things which happen behind this fast pace adreline sport the money magnets which make you believe what they want to

to know what is it like u have to read the book because this cannot make a justice what I write in the next few lines trying to tell what happens in a period of four years

’96 damon hill wins the title two controversial drivers getting it at each other

’97 the controversy of the technical foul committed by schumi on Jacque villniue making everyone believe that schumi is human and cracked under pressure

’98 the mika years maclaren build the best car ever build

’99 the leg breaking accident in silverstone and the Ferrari understudy Irvine trying to win the title

this book makes u hate schumi for the controversy makes u stand up and applaud for the gutsy races he raced against the best cars

makes u love him in the end because of the way he is, his loyalty to the team, to the fans and still come year after year and sit in a inferior car and be the best

the last words as Irvine says in the book

“ to beat schumi in a better car is possible thats how Damon Hill ,Jacque and Mika did it

but in the same car he is miles ahead of any one of them….”
