Book Details

Race-winning team strategist shows how F1 really works. Welcome to Bernadette ‘Bernie’ Collins’ world. Formula 1 drivers are the public face of Grand Prix racing but behind every driver is a team of several hundred people sharing the same passionate desire to win. On race day it’s the Team Strategist who calls the shots, working under immense pressure to make split-second and crucial decisions. Through her eyes and experience as a Chief Race Engineer and F1 Team Strategist, Bernie Collins takes the reader behind the scenes of a Formula 1 team, both in the factory and at the races, to uncover what it takes to put two Formula 1 cars on the grid and go racing. HOW TO WIN A GRAND PRIX gives incredible insight of the entire process from design & construction, through pre-season testing, and how a team prepares for each of the 23 Grands Prix. For race weekend itself, Bernie recreates it hour-by-hour to plunge the reader behind the pit wall and see what it’s actually like to get from grid to podium.
