Johnny and fellow Formula 1 legend Damon Hill OBE have come together to write a brand-new book.

In a deal that was brokered by Champions Celebrity Talent Management, Lights Out, Full Throttle will see the pair join forces to discuss, dissect and celebrate the sport that made the two household names.


Throughout the 2017 Grand Prix season, which began in March and runs until November, Johnny Herbert has teamed up with Betsafe to deliver news, predictions, previews and expert opinions on all the races, personalities and teams.

The former Formula One driver spent 11 years on the track, winning three races, including the British Grand Prix, and representing a total of seven teams. He won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991, and finished second for three consecutive years between 2002 and 2004.

Appearing at the lavish Villa Sarasin in Geneva yesterday Johnny gave a fascinating insight into his career in motorsport at the Union Bank of Switzerland’s (UBS) convention at Palexpo’s Le Grand-Saconnex complex. 

With banks in over 50 different countries, delegates flocked from all over Europe to listen to Johnny talk where he discussed his experiences at the highest level of motor sport. He also shared his expert opinion on the current issues surrounding the Formula 1 sport as a whole.  

Johnny will be attending the annual Autosport International show later this month. The show that is being held at Birmingham’s NEC will see legendary Formula 1 racing driver signing copies of his fascinating autobiography What Doesn’t Kill You. The event is Europe’s largest indoor motorsport event and is celebrating its 27th anniversary taking place between 12th -15th January. 

We are delighted to report that Johnny’s outstanding autobiography What Doesn’t Kill You… has been nominated for the Autobiography of the Year prize at the Cross Sports Book Awards. Johnny sees his fascinating life story longlisted and going up against the likes of Jamie Vardy, Greg Rutherford and Jason and Laura Kenny.

Champions Celebrity’s own Johnny Herbert – the legendary Formula 1 racing driver – has released his eagerly awaited autobiography titled ‘What Doesn’t Kill You…’

F1 legend Johnny Herbert will release his autobiography ‘What Doesn’t Kill You…My Autobiography’ on Thursday 3rd November. Telling the story of his incredible motor racing career, the book traces his story from his first steps in the sport, through to his three Grand Prix wins, 24-hour Le Mans triumph and successful transition into punditry for Sky Sports.

Johnny has backed Lewis Hamilton to pip Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to the finish line in Sakhir and record a third consecutive Bahrain Grand Prix win this weekend.

Having successfully tipped the German to win the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, Johnny believes Hamilton, the 2015 champion, will top the podium on Sunday.

Johnny said: "This weekend I expect (Hamilton) to put that right and take what would be a third consecutive Bahrain GP win.

“He's still the man to catch, even if his poor start last time out allowed his teammate to take the spoils."

Johnny has joined up with the rest of the Sky Sports F1 team in Melbourne as the start of the new season gets ever nearer.

The Australian Grand Prix will be the first race on the 21-nation calendar, as 11 teams prepare to battle it out on tracks all across the world in a bid to clinch the biggest motorsport prize of all.

Johnny is part of a Sky Sports F1 line-up that boasts three other former F1 drivers, including 1996 world champion Damon Hill, together with Martin Brundle and new arrival Paul Di Resta.
