Formula One and Beyond Book Description:

After Max Mosley decided to take the News of the World to court for invading his privacy, a friend of Rupert Murdoch asked Bernie Ecclestone 'Does Max know what he's taking on?' Ecclestone replied that he thought Mosley probably did, but he wasn't sure about Murdoch. It was a mark of the respect in which the former president of the FIA is held by those who know him best. Mosley not only won, but he has now become a formidable campaigner against the abuses of the press. Now, having been in the public eye all his life, after his parents Oswald and Diana Mosley were interned during the second world war for their political beliefs, he has decided to give his fascinating account of his extraordinary career. He gave up a promising position at the Bar to take up motor racing, initially as a driver and later as a team owner. He got to know some of the sport's most famous names, but also saw the reckless disregard for their lives shown by many organisers. Mosley went on to form a formidable partnership with Ecclestone, and he reveals in compelling detail how they set about transforming Formula One into the most glamorous, exciting and extravagant form of motorsport. His inside knowledge is unrivalled, and for any fan of the sport this account is sure to shed much new light. His often unsung work for the FIA not only made Formula One safer, it was also to have hugely beneficial consequences to motorists eveywhere.
