Since the Grand Prix’s start in 1950 just 33 men have achieved the accolade of F1 World Champion. For the first time, legendary F1 commentator Maurice Hamilton and award-winning photographers Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier bring the heroes of this iconic sport together, in a stunning photographic portrayal of the poise, skill and winning mindset that separates the fast from the furious, the elite from the talented.
With exclusive quotes from icons such as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, and including Maurice’s historic interviews with the sport’s lost heroes – including James Hunt and Aryton Senna – F1: The Champions is a beautiful tribute to the most ferocious of sports and the incredible sportsmen who drive at the edge in pursuit of greatness.
|A racing book that is a tribute to all of the Formula one champions since 1950. Of course, some of these champions have won more than one. They race around the world and receive points based on where they finish. When the season ends, he with the most points wins the championship. Lewis Hamilton has won the last few championships.
You get excellent photos and a description of each champion from 1950 onward. The author goes into some interesting facts that most people don’t know, other information you might. I myself thought it was all good and it was nice reading once again about Jackie Stewart, James Hunt, Michael Schumacher, and others.
