"The most thrilling show- on Barth as Bernie Ecclestone describes Formula 1 in his foreword, constantly brings forth new heroes. Drivers who stand out because of their special skills, great courage and willingness to push things to the limit at all times. The 32 world champions since 1950 have all reached the Olympian heights of Formula 1 in their own way. It is they who put a face to this dynamic sport. The spectrum ranges from the charismatic maturity of a Juan Manuel Fangio to the impetuous youthfulness of a Sebastian Vettel. Drawing on their esperience of over five decades, Rainer W Schlegelmilch and Hartmut Lehblink portray the giants of the race track. Stunning photographs and well-informed texts bring glorious triumphs like those of serial winner Michael Schumacher to vibrant lite, as well as recalling the tragic accidents of drivers like Jim Clark and Ayrton Senna. Over a span of more than sixty years you are right there amidst the actio, in the pit lane or even in the cockpit of a car. You can trace the development of the racing car, of the staging of racing events and, last but by no means least, of the people who have left their stamp on Formula 1. All this makes "Formula 1 World Champions" a very special journey through time.

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.

The 2007 Formula One Championship was the first since the legendary 1986 season in which three drivers went into the final race with the possibility of being crowned champion. And not since that fateful year, when Mansell, Piquet and Prost went head-to-head, has a season so captured the world's attention and drawn so many new spectators to the sport - for reasons both on and off the track. It wasn't meant to be that way. When Fernando Alonso joined McLaren for 2007, the unspoken assumption was that the double world champion would steadily proceed to his third title in a row. He would have done exactly that, but for a development no-one could have foreseen. Carl Lewis Hamilton, a relative unknown and just twenty-two-years old, would climb into the other McLaren-Mercedes and captivate the world withconsistently brilliantperformances. Even as it welcomed this new prodigy, however, the world of Formula One was rocked by accusations of spying between McLaren and their bitter rivals Ferrari; accusations that resulted in millions of pounds in fines and an ill feeling between the teams, their drivers and the governing body that now threatens the future of the sport. Revisiting the 1986 season to contrast it with the world of F1 today, and applying his extensive experience as an award-winning motor-sport journalist for over 30 years, Maurice Hamilton provides a review of a season that will be remembered as one of the most important and unique in the sport's history. Analysing the individual races in expert detail as well as looking at the drivers themselves, CHEQUERED CONFLICT in its look at how radically the sport has changed in those twenty years, will become a classic of its

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.

Senna Versus Prost

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

In the late eighties and early nineties, Formula One was at its most explosive, with thrilling races, charismatic drivers, nail-biting climaxes - and the most deadly rivalry ever witnessed in sport. Two of Formula One's most honoured champions and iconic figures drove together for McLaren for two seasons, and their acrimonious and hostile relationship extended even after one of them had left the team. ALAIN PROST, France's only F1 world champion, the intelligent, smooth driver with the epithet 'Le Professeur'. AYRTON SENNA, the mercurial kid from a privileged background in Sao Paolo who would become the most intense and ruthless racing driver the world has ever seen. It was a story that would have a tragic ending. As the great rivals raced to victory, their relationship deteriorated badly, beginning with the breaking of a gentleman's agreement, and public spats followed, culminating in Prost accusing Senna of deliberately trying to ride him off the circuit, and fearful that the Brazilian would get someone killed with his daring overtaking feats. And the final, sad act of this drama happened at the San Marino Grand prix at Imola in May 1994, when Senna was killed. Featuring a rare interview with Prost, and insight from Martin Brundle, Damon Hill, Sir Frank Williams, Bernie Ecclestone, Derek Warrick, Johnny Herbert, Gerhard Berger, plus McLaren insiders and other F1 figures, Malcolm Folley provides us with a breath-taking account of one of the all-time classic sporting rivalries.
