Formula One is speed, glamour, danger – and eye-watering wealth. Driven: The Men Who Made Formula One tells how a small group of extraordinary men transformed Formula One from a niche sport played out on primitive tracks surrounded hay bales and grass verges into a billion pound empire racing around vast palaces of entertainment all over the world.

Led by Bernie Ecclestone, the diminutive billionaire ringmaster, this clique started by scraping a living to go racing and ended up creating space-age cars, turning drivers from amateur gladiators into multimillion-pound superstars and helping to construct an industry in Britain employing thousands of people that is the envy of the world.

For twenty years, Kevin Eason watched how these men operated like a sporting Mafia, protecting each other while squabbling over the vast wealth pouring into the sport. As motor racing correspondent for The Times and then with The Sunday Times , Eason was privileged to have a ringside seat as this cabal of wealthy characters ruled and then were squeezed out of the sport they created.

Their lives are revealed with all of their quirks and extravagant living in a colourful and compelling account of men from different backgrounds who came together in one generation sharing just one quality – they were all driven.
