I seem to recall that she was working on her memoirs a few years ago.  Does anyone know if that’s still a possibility?

She gave the impression in a post retirement interview ages ago  that her autobiography was imminent, but since then... nothing. Brenda had pretty strong and possibly controversial views on all kinds of Ferrari and motor racing matters, so it should be a fascinating read, if it ever sees the light of day. She hinted at all kind of things in the interview, and gave the impression that all would be revealed in time.

Thank You Doug, what a fabulous read.

It could well be that she knew Ferrari’s drivers better than anyone else... ever.

Sent a whatsapp to Brenda this morning.

Her answer: " You can tell them I have never talked about doing a autobiography on myself,

don`t know who made this up!"

In this matter - just for once - I am entirely innocent...    :wave:

I unexpectedly bumped into Brenda last weekend at Imola, she seemed to be on great form.
