F1 Retro 1970, 7 Jan 2014
A beautiful book ! The gorgeous, almost poetic writing and stunning pictures conjures such vivid imagery. You can feel the danger and fear for the characters involved. Reading this book is like going back in time and experiencing these events.The analysis of the events and cars of the time are simply brilliant.The aero analysis using modern CFD simulation of the Lotus 72 is a stroke of genius and reveals information that even the designers of the time could not have known. The depth of reporting, the interviews with the cars designers, mechanics and drivers, all with the benefit of hindsight add to make this book one of the stand out F1 titles of the last decade, at least ! I can't put this book down !
