Review from Motor Sport, June 2008
UK magazine
Circulation: 28,000

The tale of a Formula 1 team that took 52 races to finish in the points and spent 21 years struggling at the back of the grid sounds as though it could be a depressing read. Indeed, as Vigar says in the first few pages, "Some ask' what went wrong?' The real question is 'what went right?"' A bleak start if ever there was one.

However, this year-by-year account of the Italian team is both interesting and endearing. Vigar, a self-confessed die-hard Minardi fan, charts the team's 21-year history from Formula 2 to its first GP in 1985, its first point in '88, the problems with Flavio Briatore before he took over and its predictable downfall.

This is an extremely well-researched read and if you're wondering why someone would spend so much time on such a book, just have a think about how many people have written literary works on the Scottish rugby team.

Well written and easy on the eye, this first book on the team is a must for Minardi's hardcore fan base. And for others? Well, you might be pleasantly surprised. How many other teams can say that they survived while 24 others failed during their stint in Formula 1?

The story of Glan Carlo Minardi and his F1 team is certainly charming, even if they weren't loved by everyone in the paddock ...

Review from Octane, July 2008
UK magazine

Formula One's least successful team - 21 years without a podium finish - gets its own tribute in this affectionate history that proves the truism of every dog having its day. Extensive quotes from the key personnel and drivers involved tell the heart-warming story of a team that raced for the love of it, rather than to sell cars.

"... a beautifully illustrated book ..." – The Marshal

Startline magazine, June 2008
Circ: 8500

After 20 years of glorious 'failure', the best-loved team in Formula One is consigned to the history books, and it deserves one of its own. Minardi had a successful time in Formula Two until the tiny Italian outfit was ready to hit the big time in 1985. It somehow survived in R's shark-infested waters as bigger teams (Lotus, Arrows, Tyrrell) were dragged under. They have a truly international fan-base and are the 'second team' of most F1 devotees. Minardi is held in such affection as everyone loves the plucky underdog. Despite a petition of 15,000 names the Minardi name has vanished from the F1 grid and true motorheads miss it. This is the one and only inside account, with exclusive, comprehensive interviews with bosses, drivers and engineers. 140 unique photos complete this revolutionary tale.

Review by Jamie O'Leary for Autosport, 2008
UK magazine

Minardi were universally loved during their 20-year stint in F1 and now Simon Vigar has attempted to gather up the best bits in his new title, 'Forza Minardi!'

Featuring interviews with Bernie Ecclestone, Fernando Alonso and the man himself Giancarlo Minardi, the book is well-researched and insightful - did you know for instance that Ayrton Senna, frustrated with the inter-team politics at McLaren, was weighing up a move to Minardi during the later stages of the 1989 season?

If there is one criticism - and there is one - it's that half the book (65 out of 135 pages) is dedicated to the five years under Paul Stoddart's stewardship, leaving only the same amount of space to cover the 1985-2000 period, including Pierluigi Martini's famous lap in front at Estoril in '89.

If you're one of those closet Minardi-istas, then it is recommended.

Biographie de l'auteur

Simon Vigar has beaten Nigel Mansell at karting and taken Michael Schumacher for tuition laps in an F430 at Fiorano. Simon keeps his feet on the ground working as motor sport correspondent for LBC Radio in London and has reported from many Grands Prix. He has also narrated the official Formula One videos and is an award-winning TV and radio news reporter.
James Hunt’s exploits got Simon hooked on F1 and his passion for Minardi developed in the early 90s. Cheering on the underdog in an increasingly grey, corporate world harked back to the days of Hesketh and James.
