new F1 book which investigates the 1994 Benetton/Schumacher cheating allegations and associated politics. The book has fresh insight from Benetton insiders; Willem Toet, Simon Morley (the “junior employee” blamed for the fuel fire) and Frank Dernie, and Williams’ insider Paul West. The book merely presents evidence thus allowing you, the reader, to decide what happened. What is uncovered might just blow your mind…
1994 was a watershed year for F1 in so many ways, the fatal accidents of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna shook the sport to its core and what followed was mayhem:
• Rushed rule changes
• A power struggle for control of the sport
• Teams exploiting vagueness in the rules
• Accusations of politically motivated penalties slapped down to teams
• An alleged cover-up over the near fatal pit-lane fire at Hockenheim
• Perhaps the most controversial championship conclusion ever
It also saw Michael Schumacher and Benetton first emerge as championship contenders, upsetting the establishment. Many believe their sudden rise was down to cheating, whilst others feel they were penalised unfairly because of politics. For the first time all the arguments are painstakingly examined in this book. Fresh insights, exclusive interviews, and a plethora of existing evidence are brought together thus giving the clearest analysis yet into the events of 1994.
You will be amazed how much previously unknown/forgotten information, this book unearths. 1994 was tragic, chaotic, political, technical, and involved some very colorful characters in the heart of the action. It is a story that is guaranteed to amaze, delight, and shock you in equal measures.
