Chances are you don't own the 2010 Constructor's Championship winning Red Bull RB-6 which also propelled Sebastian Vettel to become the Driver Champion, but don't let that put you off...

This is the perfect gift for a Formula 1 fan, particularly Red Bull fans of course, and this book contains an incredible amount of detailed facts and figures about an iconic car which was the class of the field during the 2010 season.

It doesn't go into as much low level detail as your average standard Haynes manual, instead this is more of an encyclopaedia about the car and the Red Bull team itself. After a short foreword from Team Boss and Chief Designers Christian Horner and Adrian Newey we get "The Story of Red Bull". This is an interesting section and instead of simply covering a potted history since Red Bull was established, it goes back to the initial origins when Jackie Stewart and his son started the Stewart Team. Fans will know that this eventually became the Jaguar team before transforming into Red Bull Racing, and the journey is told here detailing all the key people and achievements during that transition.

The car is seen from different points of view with sections giving quotes and opinions from the designers, race engineers, and the drivers. Each section has plenty of colour photographs and diagrams showing the car from all angles and explaining the technology behind each part. 2010 will also be remembered for continuing debate on different rear diffuser designs and McLaren's much copied 'F-Duct' - these too are clearly explained but without missing out the interesting aero-dynamic science parts that we F1 fans tend to enjoy reading about.

I've been an F1 fan for over two decades and this is the best and most readable explanation of how an F1 car works that I've come across. Nicely presented, lots of photos and generally very clear explanations of how the aerodynamics and mechanical aspects of an F1 car works together with an overview of design and how a race weekend plays out. It's about the 2010 Red Bull but I suspect that almost all the content is equally applicable to any of the top teams. If you're a Ferrari or McLaren fan, don't be put off.

I was expecting great things from this book, and it delivered on every account. This book is fantastic. It gives you a clear understanding of how the RB6 works, covering pretty much everything - brakes, engine, suspension, front wing, diffuser etc. This can also be applied to the other cars on the grid, and not just the RB6. You also get an insight to what goes on behind the scenes at Red Bull Racing. From the initial design of the car to developing it throughout the season to setting up the car for the race, this book covers pretty much everything.

If you're not a Red Bull fan, don't hesitate to get this book. As a McLaren fan myself, this book is still amazing even if its about the RB6.

I saw this book on Amazon and took a peek inside. It appeared to be just what I wanted for my husband's 65th birthday present. I sneaked it in to my hand luggage and it travelled to Lanzarote where we were celebrating 65th birthdays with friends, all of whom love F1 motor sport events. It was an instant hit all round and lived up to my expectation perfectly.

The reviews I had read previously also convinced me to order a copy for him and I am so glad I did, he loved the book because it explains so much with numerous comments from all his favourite personalities. Are there any other F1 Haynes manuals for the other teams?

The technical information is presented in a very readable format, written by experts who really know how it is and what to say. A trully great read for anyone interested in motor sport with amazing illustrations.

This book is a good introduction to the main technical aspects involved in modern F1, particularly regarding aerodynamics. It requires no particular technical knowledge. On the other hand, the book is clearly too superficial for readers with an engineering or technical background. Still a safe choice for any F1 enthusiast.

This book was purchased for a grandson who is very keen on F1 motor racing and wants to pursue a carreer within the racing industry. As a first insight into F1 this seems an ideal book and I am sure it will be muchreferred to.

it's basically a Haynes manual for a F1 car, it has photos of the internal parts of the car & detailed descriptions ok it's nowhere as detailed as a Haynes manual for a normal road car, but it gives a in-site into the skills needed to design a F1 car, the book also goes on to show development of a car, it's a good book & a must for any F1 fan, at the price you cannot really go wrong.
