The Inside Story on Two Explosive F1 World Championships.

Chequered Conflict : The Inside Story on Two Explosive F1 World Championships. The 2007 Formula One Championship was the first since the legendary 1986 season in which three drivers went into the final race with the possibility of being crowned champion. And not since that fateful year, when Mansell, Piquet and Prost went head-to-head, has a season so captured the world's attention and drawn so many new spectators to the sport - for reasons both on and off the track.

Author Maurice Hamilton has chosen to chronicle not just 2007 but also another gripping season, 1986, in which the title also went down to the wire with three drivers in play. In 1986 there was a Brit, Nigel Mansell, fighting a Frenchman, Alain Prost, and a Brazilian, Nelson Piquet. Mansell and Piquet were team-mates who hated one another, while Prost was the outsider

The 2007 Formula One Championship was the first since the legendary 1986 season in which three drivers went into the final race with the possibility of being crowned champion. It wasn't meant to be that way. When Fernando Alonso joined McLaren for 2007, the unspoken assumption was that the double world champion would steadily proceed to his third title.

The 2007 Formula One Championship was the first since the legendary 1986 season in which three drivers went into the final race with the possibility of being crowned champion. And not since that fateful year, when Mansell, Piquet and Prost went head-to-head, has a season so captured the world's attention and drawn so many new spectators to the sport - for reasons both on and off the track. It wasn't meant to be that way. When Fernando Alonso joined McLaren for 2007, the unspoken assumption was that the double world champion would steadily proceed to his third title in a row. He would have done exactly that, but for a development no-one could have foreseen. Carl Lewis Hamilton, a relative unknown and just twenty-two-years old, would climb into the other McLaren-Mercedes and captivate the world with consistently brilliant performances. Even as it welcomed this new prodigy, however, the world of Formula One was rocked by accusations of spying between McLaren and their bitter rivals Ferrari; accusations that resulted in millions of pounds in fines and an ill feeling between the teams, their drivers and the governing body that now threatens the future of the sport. Revisiting the 1986 season to contrast it with the world of F1 today, and applying his extensive experience as an award-winning motor-sport journalist for over 30 years, Maurice Hamilton provides a review of a season that will be remembered as one of the most important and unique in the sport's history. Analysing the individual races in expert detail as well as looking at the drivers themselves, CHEQUERED CONFLICT in its look at how radically the sport has changed in those twenty years, will become a classic of its genre.
As an F1 fan, I can't help but praise this book more. The way it interleaves the 1986 season together to show similarities is particularly interesting. Some things stay the same...

One doesn't have to be an F1 fan to enjoy this book, it's almost worthy of a mild-thriller genre. After reading it, and seeing that Ron Howard is making the movie "Rush" about a previous season, one could probably say a movie about 2007 season would go down well too.

At the end of the day the book is about the people, the conflict, the politics, with the cars and racing as a very nice backdrop.

Couldn't put it down.
Interesting take on this year and drivers, and how it compared to the F! year 20 years earlier. It is odd how these drivers can just about hate each other (or so it seems), and then a couple years later they are teammates.
After reading this book, I was able to recall most of the 2007 season. Ofcourse the book is only focused on Mclaren drivers and their intra-team battle which is the only downside of this book. There is lot of text which shows the writer's biasedness towards Lewis Hamilton and undermines Fernando Alonso.
This is the best book I've read in a long time. While the subject itself was quite a thrill (the 2007 F1 season), the manner in which the author handled it made it even better. This was truly an inside look at what went on during a very unusual and exciting F1 season and also gives a great insight into the character of a couple of the top drivers of present day. The reader cannot help but come away from reading this book with added respect and admiration for one of them and it helped reinforce my feelings about the other. Ferrari's strong influence on the FIA is also explored as well as the unjustness of the punishment on McLaren. Any racing fan will love this book!
