Jo Ramirez is one of the best-liked and most respected Formula One personalities of recent years, and is held in high esteem both inside and outside the Grand Prix paddock. Now available in paperback, here is his personal account of his life in motor racing, told with humour, warmth and joy, and providing an honest insight into the highs and lows of a career that saw him work with many of the sport's greatest heroes, although he is perhaps best known for his many years as Team Co-ordinator at McLaren, including the legendary Prost/Senna era.

A wonderful first-hand account of life within Formula 1 from the 1960s to the early years of the new millennium. A fine read: humourous but also revealing and insightful. Autosport, the leading motor racing weekly, described it as "a cracking read that sucks you in and grips you". A highlight is the author's account of the rivalry between Senna and Prost - he was there as a key part of the McLaren management structure. Fascinating and honest accounts of working with many of motorsport's legends, including Phil Hill, Jackie Stewart, Jody Scheckter, Emerson Fittipaldi, Keke Rosberg, Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna, and Mika Hakkinen.
Jo Ramirez is now enjoying his retirement, but keeps in touch with his many friends and former colleagues in motorsport. He divides his time between homes in London and Malaga.
