McMurray's book is more like a conversation you'd have in the bar about 30-odd years in Formula One rather than who set the fastest time at Monaco on lap 32 in 1987 in what car, on what tyres, wearing what-coloured overalls and with what sort of logo on his helmet. Numbers can be found on the Internet; this book is about the interesting stuff.
