'The story of Brawn GP is legendary... Exciting and magical.' Damon Hill

Foreword by Bernie Ecclestone
____________________________

The full story of F1's incredible 2009 championship battle has never been told. Until now.

At the end of 2008, Nick Fry, then head of Honda's F1 team, was told by his Japanese bosses that the motor company was pulling out of F1. In response, Nick and chief engineer Ross Brawn persuaded Honda to sell them the company for GBP1 - a gamble that would take the team all the way to winning the 2009 Driver's and the Constructor's Championship with a borrowed engine, a heavily adapted chassis and, at least initially, no sponsors.

Giving the inside track on the drivers, the rivalries, on negotiating with Bernie Ecclestone and on hiring and working with global superstars Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton, Survive. Drive. Win. is a gripping memoir of how one man found himself in the driving seat for one of the most incredible journeys in the history of motor sport.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The story of Brawn GP is legendary. Imagine sitting at home at Christmas thinking you were out of a job, then by next Christmas you were a World Champion. This is F1's Leicester City story - it's every bit as exciting and magical. -- Damon Hill
It is refreshing for a book to be written about a sport as exciting as Formula One which covers the enormous amount of work that happens behind the scenes to bring two cars to the grid. -- Sir Jackie Stewart
Nick Fry and Ed Gorman take us behind the mysterious and tightly closed doors of F1 to tell the remarkable story of the 2009 season, through the eyes of someone at the centre of the action. -- Martin Brundle
Fascinating detail covering efforts behind the scenes to keep Brawn GP alive and on course for their extraordinary World Championship. Nick Fry gives a refreshingly honest and, at times, self-deprecating account. Reporting from the sidelines, it's clear we only knew half the story... -- Maurice Hamilton, award-winning motor-sport writer and broadcaster
This book portrays all that is good about Britain. The very best talent in motor sport, excellent designers, engineers and sound business leaders who kept their heads in a crisis... and then went on to win a World Championship against all the odds in the most ruthlessly competitive sport there is. A truly inspiring story. -- Lord Digby Jones, Former Director General of the CBI and former Minister of State for UK Trade & Investment
