Proa great read, plenty of facts and stats

Consnone

I have been a fan of Jenson Button since 2000 and followed him through the thick and thin, good and bad (and at times there was plenty of bad). 2009 was an amazing year for Jenson and his fans and this book documents the journey of that year in Jenson’s own words.

Product Information : My Championship Year - Jenson Button

Manufacturer's product description

Jenson Button's re-emergence on the top step of the podium under the management of Ross Brawn has been the biggest story in Formula 1 for decades. My Grand Prix Sseason is Jenson's personal diary of the 2009 season. In it, he takes a race-by-race approach, beginning each chapter with a run-down of everything from details of the circuit to pre-race testing, changes to the car, and notes on specific strategy and training, fitness and mental preparation. He relives practice and qualifying sessions, and of course gives a detailed account of each race from the driver's perspective. This personal commentary is interspersed with notes on techie stats and records broken, transcripts of in-car radio exchanges, quotes from the team, snippets from the TV commentary and even Jenson's own text messages to give a real sense of the spirit and atmosphere of each race weekend. Fans will have already seen the races, but this beautifully produced, highly illustrated book is an opportunity to relive the highs and lows and discover what it has really been like for Jenson to find himself suddenly at the front of the pack, with a truly competitive car at his disposal, after nine years spent waiting in the wings. With a foreword by team boss Ross Brawn and an introductory section giving the driver's perspective on the events leading up to the first race - including the demise of Honda, the last-minute management buyout and genesis of the Brawn team, and the development of the most advanced car on the grid - it is not only a fascinating and informative read, but also a must-have souvenir of a truly sensational season.
