As with the previous editions of this book, Piola manages to capture the essence of the technical trials, tribulations and solutions faced and presented by the teams in the 1999 F-1 season.
His drawings and artwork are fantastic, and manage to allow the reader to somehow 'see' inside the car and it's mechanicals.
This reader eagerly awaits the '2000 edition!

Even better than 98 if thats possible 23 Aug. 2000
By Lourdes Cantore - Published on Amazon.com
Let me start off by saying that if you are an F1 fan especially a technical one(like myself) you can't pass up this book. If you do not know who Giorgio Piola is, he draws for the weekly magazine AutoSport. He is one of the best artist I have seen. His technical drawings allow you to understand the F1 cars in a technical perspective. Compared to the last edition "Technical Analysis 98", this one is even better. If you don't have the 98 book you should order that one too. I do like the 99 book since it is written in english only as opposed to the 98 which is in italian and english, but thats not a problem. What will really impress you is the attention to detail of the drawings, but they are so easy to understand. Again this is a must for any F1 fan. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

In depth look at F1 1 Jun. 2001
By vijaye@tm.net.my - Published on Amazon.com
The best book for anyone who is interested in the technical side of modern F1. The coloured illustration that make up the book are top class, clearly showing the differences between the different cars no matter how minute. The section following the development if Ferrari and McLaren from race to race is superb. Those hoping for an explanation for the different designs and the concepts behind them should look for other books, though I doubt you'll find one thanks to F1's secrecy, but for those who would like to really view the cars in all their beauty there is nothing to match this book.

Great Book but Only at a Reasonable Price 26 Aug. 2007
By T. Grim - Published on Amazon.com
I've read this book and own the complete following series.

It's a good reference for that year, but the sport has moved on FAR beyond this and it's lessons are very dated.

If you're interested in current technology, buy an edition from later years/series. If your interested in the technology of the era, look up Peter Wright's "Formula 1 Technology" and compare prices. Wright's book is FAR superior, especially putting the technology in context and especially if the price is nearly the same.

That's even speaking as a Ferrari supporter since the Niki Lauda era...

Best actually for tecnical F1 review !! 23 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Actually, with this price, it's the only known I review !
I'm realizing scale model kits and this is the best book I found,
but the previous year books are pretty dificult to find.
I hope each year book, in french for me, but it's rather without
importance, because the drawings are so fine ...
Unfortunately, there no same books in rallying or so.
