Mark Hughes has been covering Formula One for nearly 20 years. He writes for Autosport - widely regarded as the best weekly motorsport magazine in the world. He is also part of the F1 commentary team for ITV. He has written a number of books on F1, the last of which, Speed Addicts, won the 2005 Illustrated Sports Book of the Year.
"'The best [of the Hamilton biographies] for knowledgeable fans is The Full Story by Mark Hughes, which - odd though it may seem - provides more detail, particularly on the earliest days of his racing career, than Hamilton's own version. Hughes is an accomplished Formula One journalist with a particularly accurate eye for the driving styles of individual drivers. Most of these authors have no trouble in persuading you that Hamilton is good. Hughes can tell you better than the rest why he is good: this is the volume for the petrolhead in your life.' Daily Telegraph 'If you are thinking of getting a Hamilton book, please don't be duped into thinking the official book will automatically be the best option. The Full Story is a far better choice.' F1Fanatic.co.uk 'Written with insider knowledge, and that fact shows through' Autosport"
