From the greatest automobile racing team in the world, Inside Ferrari is an exclusive and intimate report from inside Formula One's most successful, most alluring and most secretive racing team. This book provides a rare glimpse into the world-famous Ferrari factory, onto the Ferrari test track and inside the Ferrari garage. The book captures what it takes to be one of the world's great sports teams.

The camera division of the Olympus Corporation, a sponsor of the Ferrari Formula One team, commissioned Jon Nicholson to go behind the scenes at Ferrari and take exclusive photographs of its Fl team at work, both while preparing for races and during the races themselves. Nicholson and his teammate, racing journalist Maurice Hamilton, create a candid profile that is packed with exciting stories and action photos of behind-the-scenes workers and such internationally famous drivers as Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello.

Readers will discover some of the secrets involving:

  • The factory
  • The testing
  • The cars
  • The drivers
  • Racing
  • The Ferrari racing family

    No one else has ever been given such access to Ferrari, and Inside Ferrari is a delight for the millions of Formula One racing fans.
