Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
I'm so pleased to discover this book. It tells 60 years of Formula One history through the contemporary newspaper reports, filed by a succession of the Telegraph's grand prix correspondents and specialists. Events, drivers, dramas, scandals, obituaries, thrills and spills - they're all here, described variously with authority, pathos, appreciation, accuracy and humour. The evolution of reporting style from those commenting on the days of Mike Hawthorn and Stirling Moss through to the modern personal columns penned by Damon Hill and Eddie Irvine and more free-range style of feature writing makes for addictive reading. I couldn't put it down.

Highly recommended. This is a must-have title for all motorsport fans.

This is a great trawl through F1 history, it is interesting to see how the reporting of the spectacle that is Grand Prix has grown from small paragraphs to full blown features.

Every major twist and turn is recorded as is the emergence and eventual glories of some of the great champions.

This is a must have book for any fan of the sport, I have only given it four stars however because its one drawback is the paucity of images to compliment the reports, had there been more photos it would have been a five star plus.
