Description

Total Competition is the most compelling, comprehensive and revealing insight into what it takes to get to the top in Formula One that has ever been published.

Across 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, motor sports, 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.

Total Competition is a definitive portrait of modern motorsport. In the book, Brawn and Parr explore the unique pressures of Formula One, their battles with Bernie Ecclestone and the cut-throat world they inhabited, where coming second is never good enough. This book will appeal not only to the millions of Formula One fans who want to understand how Brawn operates; it will also provide many lessons in how to achieve your own business goals.

For F1 junkies.

Narration changed volume a lot. Good otherwise. Might be too dense for non-fans despite the author's efforts.

Bravo for Braun

I stumbled into Formula 1 shortly after arriving in the UK in 2009. I became totally absorbed by it. And I quickly learned that Ross Braun is a genius. Yes it takes a fast car in a great driver to win championships but as this book points out it takes a whole lot more that goes on with hundreds and even thousands of people preparing for lights out every race weekend. One person has to oversee the entire program. Is there any better than Ross? This is an excellent book that draws back the curtain and gives you a glimpse of the process that is the man that has led to more than 20 world championships. The information is so good I am actually going to buy the hardcopy because it is difficult to mine all of the gold in two listenings.

Insightful and rare peek into the politics of F1

The format the authors chose to write this book makes it a bit awkward to follow and it's laced with some academic approach to how Ross Brawn's leadership style helped him be so successful which sometimes was boring and other times interesting. Very different from Adrian Newey's book but still enjoyable.

The unforgotten genius

No one in this world knows more about Formula 1 than Ross Brawn. I have no words to describe the content. It's just amazing.
