engineering careers  Explore the Autobiography of the World’s Greatest Formula 1 Designer

Adrian Newey OBE is one of Britain’s greatest engineers and the world’s foremost designer in Formula One.

His autobiography jumps back through his 35-year career through the lens of the cars he has worked to design and the people he has worked alongside.

Arguably Adrian is a true engineering genius – and the book gives an insight into how evolved from a 12-year-old sketching his own car designs, through his career as an IndyCar racer through to his striking success in Formula One. Over his career Adrian designed for everyone from Mario Andretti through Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.

The book really shines when it comes to its comprehensive, engaging and highly entertaining detail how a car actually works.

The book features gorgeous illustrations and never seen before drawings and in our minds showcases what makes Formula One so exhilarating – the perfect combination of style, speed and engineering efficiency.
