Total Competition: Lessons in Strategy from Formula One

Official Description from Author:

Over four decades, Ross Brawn was one of the most innovative and successful technical directors and then team principals in Formula One. Leading Benetton, Ferrari, Honda, Brawn, and Mercedes, he worked with drivers such as Michael Schumacher, Jenson Button, and Lewis Hamilton to make them world champions. In 2017, he was appointed F1’s managing director, motorsports, by the sport’s new owners Liberty Media. Now, in this fascinating book written with Adam Parr (who was CEO and then chairman of Williams for five years), he looks back over his career and methods to assess how he did it, and where occasionally he got things wrong.

Our Rating
If made it this deep into the website, we can safely assume you are an F1/F2 fan. So you, like me, must know a fair bit about Ross Brawn. This book fills in some much-wanted knowledge about one of the most famous non-driving names in F1 history.  It doesn’t disappoint and delivers just that. It follows a timeline of Ross Brawn’s F1 career from his perspective. The book delivers a bit more though, than just drivers and races, the book makes you question your approach and view of the sport as a business.  The book is written as the transcript of a conversation, which takes a little while to get comfortable with, but the content is fascinating and wide-ranging, with enough advice to count itself a self-help or management training book and enough specifics to be interesting to a die hard F1 fan.
