I Just Made The Tea
Tales from 30 years inside Formula 1
by Di Spires (with Bernard Ferguson)

2012, 372 pages, soft bound

In the mid 70’s Di Spires and her husband started in F1. Not as mechanics, drivers or owners, but running the ‘hospitality’ for Team Surtees. At that time the food service was little more than grilled food off a small Weber type grill and sandwiches for the team, not today’s gourmet fare for sponsors, suppliers, and celebrities. Di was instrumental in a lot of the changes. But her stories of the personalities she met over the years is the core of this book. “Her spellbinding stories cover 30 years of hilarious antics and tragic events providing a unique perspective on Formula 1. Whether she was following James Hunt’s ‘naughty tour’ of Amsterdam or just supplying George Harrison favorite cakes, she did it with a smile on her face and a teapot at the ready.”
