The Treasures of Formula One is not only a riveting history of the most prestigious formula in motor racing but also a unique treasure of photographs and removable items of facsimile memorabilia. Bruce Jones' text drives you through the early years of motoring and racing, the first Grands Prix and the birth of the World Drivers Championship. And, as well as the narrative history running through the book, there are special features on the great races, teams and drivers, all accompanied by magnificent photography and augmented by items of removable facsimile memorabilia from the Donington Grand Prix Collection, the largest of its kind in the world. Fully revised and updated to include the amazing 2013 season, there are features on the rising stars of F1, the globalisation of the sport and its organisation. The Treasures of Formula One is a winner from the red lights to the chequered flag.
