Sid Watkins: Life at the Limit – Triumph and Tragedy in Formula One
‘Life at the Limit – Triumph and Tragedy in Formula One’ are the memoirs of on-track doctor, Professor Sid Watkins if there is a crash, it is he who must get there first.
Watkins is highly respected amongst those whom he works and has been a pivotal character in improving the safety in Formula One racing. His book houses vivid and moving collections of motor sport crashes between 1978 and 1994 including many where drivers have sadly lost their lives, treading a line between autobiography and documentary.
Despite the serious nature of the book, Watkins has retained a dry wit and sense of humour which is infused into his writing. Life in the Fast Lane is a touching yet informative book which provides a truly fascinating insight into Formula One and the evolution of safety and medical facilities within the sport.
