Coulthard gives his readers a privileged view of the machinations behind his controversial decision to allow team mate and eventual champion Mika Hakkinen overtake him on the final lap of the season’s first race in Australia. His rivalry with Michael Schumacher is tracked as it develops in to animosity after a dramatic collision in Argentina and, as the season reached its climax, into near fisticuffs in Belgium.
