When I started my career I had little to no guidance on how to build a career in motorsport, let alone know how to get a job in formula 1. I always believed that success is a result of preparation, and this is also what will help you be successful. There are many people who would like to be part of formula one, but like me had no idea how to get a job in F1; so I have written this book all about the jobs that exist in Formula 1 companies to help you plan your career and to save you a considerable amount of time and effort.
I would like to honour the generations of drivers and engineers that preceded me and formed my passion for formula 1. I hold dear an admiration for those competing today, and I look forward to being witness to the ingenuity and talent of the future generation of drivers and engineers, I would like to commend all of the people that give their time and talent to supporting F1 and making the sport the incredible global success that it has become.
