The ITV Sport Encyclopedia of Formula One: The Ultimate Portable Formula One Encyclopedia

by Bruce Jones (Author)


The Pocket Encyclopedia of Formula One will be the world's handiest work of Formula One reference, covering the highest echelon of motor sport from every angle: from the day that modern Formula One dawned in front of the Royal Family at Silverstone in 1950 to the high-tech, high-finance world circus of colour that is Formula One today; from Jim Clark's inexplicable fatal accident in a second division event in 1968 to Niki Lauda's miraculous escape from his flaming Ferrari in the 1976 German Grand Prix; from the epic duels between Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss to the amazing scraps between Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna; from the dulcet tones of Nigel Mansell to the excited screams of Murray Walker. It provides essential information not only of the top teams and the top drivers, but also of the great races, the most testing circuits and the rise and fall of famous names. In addition, the book examines the way in which Formula One is now relayed to a massive audience world-wide, looking at the technology that enables you to "ride shot-gun" at racing speed with the top drivers and witness the sheer speed and outrageous braking abilities of today's Formula One cars from the comfort and safety of your own armchair.
