McLaren: The Art of Racing

    By

    With a brand new $300 million track opening in the 2012 season in Austin, Texas, the time has never been riper to learn the Art of Racing with McLaren. In the world of Formula One, the name McLaren is synonymous with precision, professionalism, and speed, but most of what the public knows about McLaren takes place on the race-track and in the pit stops. Focusing not just on champion drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, Grand Prix action and the race-day engineers, but the vast team of experts it takes to bring this global brand to the races, this lavishly illustrated book takes readers behind the scenes at the GBP270 million Norman Foster-designed McLaren Technology Centre to capture not just the people and cars, but the testing and technology behind the world's most successful F1 team. Granted unprecedented access to the inner workings of McLaren on and off the race-track, photographer Darren Heath and F1 expert Maurice Hamilton trace the evolution of a racing car from the moment of conception on the computer screen to the final race at the end of the season. The story they tell is as colourful and exciting as a Grand Prix itself.
