The Power Game: The History of Formula 1 and the World Championship
by Ivan Rendall

Amazon Review
Formula One seems straight-forward--take a number of teams, allow them two cars each to race at various challenging circuits around the world, then sit back to see who is the fastest to the chequered flag. If you think it's that simple, read on. Ivan Rendall's superb book The Power Game blows away that notion, taking you on a journey of so many twists and turns, and highs and lows, you begin to appreciate the dedication and drive which has gone into moulding the cast over the years. Formula One is now big business with massive budgets, which is arguably down to one man--Bernie Ecclestone. Ecclestone turned his hand from running a team to seizing the leading role within the inner sanctums of the sport and steering it the way he wanted. The entrepreneur Ecclestone could probably never have imagined how rich and powerful it would make him, but while he still has a few miles on the clock, he could soon be looking to take a back seat and just who is going to take over at the wheel? Rendall's ability to paint the full picture of the first 50 years is only half the story, for like a pit-lane mechanic he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty to find the answers to so many pit-lane tales. Wonderful black-and-white and colour photographs from each decade bring alive the action and the book is a fascinating and addictive read for the casual or die-hard fan. A lot of miles have been covered to get the World Championship this far, but what is around the corner remains to be seen. The Power Game tries to map out the road ahead but, just like in the world of Formula One, only the chequered flag is black and white.--Andrea Bullock
