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.

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.

Total Competition is the most compelling, comprehensive and revealing insight into what it takes to get to the top in Formula One that has ever been published. Across four decades, Ross Brawn was one of the most innovative and successful technical directors and then team principals in Formula One. Leading Benetton, Ferrari, Honda, Brawn and Mercedes, he worked with drivers such as Michael Schumacher, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton to make them world champions. In 2017, he was appointed F1's managing director, motor sports, by the sport's new owners Liberty Media. Now, in this fascinating book written with Adam Parr (who was CEO and then chairman of Williams for five years), he looks back over his career and methods to assess how he did it, and where occasionally he got things wrong. Total Competition is a definitive portrait of modern motorsport. In the book, Brawn and Parr explore the unique pressures of Formula One, their battles with Bernie Ecclestone, and the cut-throat world they inhabited, where coming second is never good enough. This book will appeal not only to the millions of Formula One fans who want to understand how Brawn operates, it will also provide many lessons in how to achieve your own business goals.
