$37.00 Inc GST

With exclusive access to the team, track-side first-hand account of how upstarts Red Bull Racing competed their way to total domination and disrupted Formula One’s world order

Intrigue, high-stakes machinations and adrenaline-fuelled track action – Growing Wings is the never-before-told inside story of how the grid’s most fascinating, swagger-rich and win-at-all-costs team competed their way to total domination and disrupted Formula One’s world order.

With exclusive access to Red Bull’s inner sanctum, but maintaining journalistic independence, leading F1 writer Ben Hunt probes the operations of a world-beating Formula One team over its eventful twenty-year history, from the rivalries, turbulence and controversy, to the game-changing tech and the leadership strategies. He also talks to the drivers themselves, including Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, for a fascinating insight into the mindset of motorsport athletes through success, risk and challenge.

Endorsed with a foreword by Team Principal Christian Horner, but maintaining journalistic independence, this thrilling, frank and unvarnished account of how the paddock’s loudest upstarts achieved team alchemy with the promotion of a driver called Max Verstappen, shows you what it looks like to go, learn, go again, tweak, test and ultimately outplay the competition in a way never before seen in Formula One.
