The Piranha Club

The Piranha Club is a reference to the group of, famously ruthless, team bosses. Formula One’s most intriguing and influential figures – the men (and women) who wield the real power.

When Eddie Jordan was famously outmanouevred by Flavio Briatore in 1991, losing the coveted contract to run Michael Schumacher, McLaren boos Ron Dennis strode up to him and simply said: “Welcome to the Piranha Club”.

The original Pirahna Club is well documented in Timothy Collings 2007 book published by Penguin.
