Jake Humphrey has one of the best jobs in the world. Flying around the world presenting Formula One to six million people is not a bad occupation. And there is plenty that the viewer doesn't get to see, quite a lot of it rather surprising too. Travelling around the globe in the F1 bubble, Jake brings you close to the action. With his unique access to the key characters in the sport, he reveals a side of figures such as Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton rarely seen before, as well as showing what it is like to work with F1 legends David Coulthard and Eddie Jordan. From techie heaven driving the Red Bull simulator to witnessing moments of great sporting triumph, Humphrey takes the reader behind the scenes in the paddock to unveil the changing face of F1, as well as recounting the pitfalls faced by a TV presenter permanently walking the tightrope of public humiliation.
Jake Humphrey hangs around garages presenting award winning F1 coverage to the masses. He has worked for the BBC for nearly 10 years and can be found hosting other great sporting events such as the Olympic Games, World Cups and Sports Personality of the Year.
