Laden with evocative black and white photographs side by side with action shots in vivid colour, 'Grand Prix Yesterday & Today' is a unique celebration of a sport that has thrilled and enthralled millions over the years.
From oil-covered shirts and racing goggles to fireproof racing suits and state-of-the-art helmets, from a laborious tyre change to a ten-second full car service, from the humble acceptance of a simple winner's laurel to the razzamatazz of a champagne-spraying podium celebration, the photographs in this book have been chosen to transport the reader through the decades from the daredevil nature of racing at the turn of the twentieth century, when a mechanic rode alongside the driver, to the global phenomenon that is Formula One today, where the closest a race engineer might get to the car is to the keyboard of a car-monitoring laptop.
Formula One has come a long way from those early road races and this book is the perfect celebration of that phenomenal journey. It also provides irrefutable proof of one constant aim: the desire to be 'the' driver to take the chequered flag.
