Formula One The Pursuit of Speed

Author: Maurice Hamilton
Publisher: Aurum Press Limited
ISBN: 9781781316498
Release Date: 2016-11-03
Genre: Photography

The adrenaline-fueled, high-octane world of Formula One has created some of the greatest moments in sporting history. Its infamous circuits have played host to intense rivalries that have produced moments of tragedy and triumph that read like a film script. Since the 1950s, Bernard Cahier and his son, Paul- Henri, have been trackside capturing the drama of the Formula One Championships. Their stunning photographs chronicle both the changing face of the teams and their cars, from Lotus and Cooper to Williams and Ferrari, and of course the legendary drivers who have pushed their machines and themselves to the limits. Formula One correspondent Maurice Hamilton brings the stories behind these photographs to life; from the charismatic rivalries of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss and the highly competitive Championship battles of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, through to the historic tales of Monaco’s winding course and the atmospheric crowds of Monza. With over 300 photographs – from the 1950s to the present day – all from The Cahier Archive and many previously unpublished, The Pursuit of Speed is the ultimate celebration of Formula One.

Formula 1 2016 2017

Author: Giorgio Piola
Publisher: Giorgio Nada Editore
ISBN: 8879116843
Release Date: 2017-03-01
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Giorgio Piola once again fathoms the 2016 season, his illustrations showing the reader all the secrets and technical aspects of the 11 teams’ battling cars in this world championship won by Nico Rosberg, who carried on the family tradition begun by his father Keke, the 1982 world title winner. Mercedes-Benz also dominated the 2016 F1 season and it did so in an even more superior manner than in the past, a sign of the team’s outstanding technical and organizational ability, the like of which has seldom been seen in the sport’s long history. Right behind the German cars came Red Bull, which took second place in the championship--a position it held in 2014--overtaking a disappointing Ferrari, which had a difficult season. But 2016 was also McLaren’s season, although the team did not quite return to the forefront, even though it made substantial progress; the year also marked the return of an American team in Haas. This edition of the book is also complete with an extensive study of the 2017 F1 World Championship, which will bring major new aerodynamic and tyre developments and a brusque performance flare-up.

Ayrton Senna

Author: Giorgio Terruzzi
Publisher: Skira - Berenice
ISBN: 8857231534
Release Date: 2016-10-25
Genre:

It's been over twenty years since his death. Now, this beloved and unforgettable champion's final hours. On May 1, 1994, at Bologna's Ospedale Maggiore, Ayrton Senna, three-time Formula 1 world champ, lay dying after a tragic accident at the Grand Prix of San Marino. The idea for this monograph (and the exhibition at the Museo della velocità dell'Autodromo Nazionale in Monza) stems from the book Suite 200: L'ultima notte di Ayrton Senna (published by 66th and 2nd, 2014) written by the journalist Giorgio Terruzzi. An enthralling story with details on the final moments of Senna's life and thoughts as the fateful hour approached. Through a selection of approximately one hundred photographs by Ercole Colombo-the famous Formula 1 photographer-this monograph aims to narrate the career as well as the most intimate aspects of the Brazilian car racer's life. A fanciful story, enriched by the writings of Giorgio Terruzzi, who covers the most important moments in Ayrton Senna's life: his legendary wins, his defeats, the loss of his friends, the great rivalry with other drivers, his emotions and family relationships, and finally the terrible accident where he lost his life.

Formula 1 2015 2016

Author: Giorgio Piola
Publisher: Giorgio Nada Editore
ISBN: 8879116568
Release Date: 2017-03-10
Genre: Sports & Recreation

As with previous years, 2015 was one in which Mercedes-Benz dominated both the drivers' and constructors- championships. The German manufacturer confirmed the technical advantage it had derived from the introduction of the revolutionary power unit, which first appeared in 2014. In place of Red Bull, which fell into disgrace after a media conflict with engine supplier Renault, it was Ferrari that attempted to stand up to the Silver Arrows. Side issues were the stories of a Williams wanting to come back and battle for the title; McLaren with a new but not very effective Honda engine, which touched the lowest point in the Japanese manufacturer's long history in F1; and the other leading teams of a season that ended with the official announcement of Renault's return, having acquired Lotus. Offering a precise analysis of this latest F1 championship, especially from the technical point of view, there is once again Giorgio Piola. A hundred or so all-colour illustrations document the development of the various cars throughout the Formula 1 World Championship, and offer - as always - a wealth of information anticipating the 2016 season.

Formula One The Real Score

Author: Brian Godfrey Harvey
Publisher: Veloce Publishing
ISBN: 1787110273
Release Date: 2017-04-14
Genre: Sports & Recreation

This book fills the gaps in Formula 1 records. The 70 years of F1 can be neatly divided into two eras at January 1980. At that point the terms “Grand Prix” and “World Championship’ became synonymous. However, until then OVER HALF of F1 races were not included in the Championship for the spurious reason that each country should have just a single race. This does a disservice to the achievements of drivers of the Fangio, Moss, Clark and Stewart era and even more-so to the four pre-championship years which began in 1946. When a commentator says “Rosberg’s 16th win equals the F1 wins of Stirling Moss” this is manifestly untrue. If the same drivers, in the same cars, compete at the same tracks, and over a similar distance, then each race deserves to have its place in the records as a “Championship quality” event. This book includes such races alongside contemporary Championship races and, combined with known figures since 1980, produces what can surely be accepted as “The Real Score” of Formula 1.
