Yesterday's Scotland on Sunday newspaper featured this article about the first winner of the Monaco Grand Prix. Correct me if I'm wrong, but were this man and his various supporting cast the basis for Joe Saward's book "The Grand Prix Saboteurs"?

Yep, quite so. Joe recently wrote a bit of a piece on his blog; a somewhat blatant attempt to promote the book but its his blog. He's entitled to do that. Anyway, the book is a good read even if there is no happy ending.
