Has anyone read Senna's "Principle's of Race Car Driving," because I cannot find a copy online less that 80 pounds. Is it worth that much?

I want to buy a book about racecar physics in russian. Can you suggest one? AFAIK the only russian speaking member here is modbaraban, so the question is mainly addressed to him.

Can't think of anything to help you out, mate :oops:

Maybe you should try this.

You might wanna keep an eye on eBay. I got myself a copy in mint condition for $6! :D

RCVD is the real deal. That said, don't start with it.

Read Prepare, Tune, Engineer, and Drive to Win by Carroll Smith.

Then get RCVD.

Actually oriented for planes but works for F1 too, a textbook demo version that explains in details aerodynamics involved in the Full Navier Stokes model.
A reference in the planes aero community but requires a very good maths level and quite a good physics and aero background.

I have a Scribd account with over 150 papers and books mostly pertaining to Aerodynamics in general which should all be free. It is a small portion of the "aerodynamics library" which I developed whilst at Uni.
