Chicagoland MG Club: Library
Benetton, Formula 1 Racing Team
by Alan Henry

1998, softbound, 159 pages, color photos

In 1985 the Benetton family (Italian knitwear clothing) acquired the Toleman F1 team and in ten years brought home the world championship. But with people like Flavio Briatore, Nelson Piquet, Ross Brawn, and Michael Schumacher, how could they go wrong? Often controversial, sometimes inspirational, here is a team that is used to making banner headlines. Although the team is now Renault, and the main characters have moved on to other teams or retired, the book shows how a modern team functions and that personalities are as important as the machinery.
