The 1980s was a momentous decade in Formula 1 and this all-colour book, featuring magnificent images by the renowned German photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch, captures the extraordinary drama of that period. Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell all made their debuts in this decade and became, with Nelson Piquet, the stars of the era - they were arch rivals equipped, at one stage, with the most powerful racing engines of all time. McLaren and Williams first established themselves as regular winners in this period, and these teams, with Ferrari, remain big players today. This was a decade when Formula 1 was transformed by political upheaval, technical innovation and extended TV coverage, all of which laid the foundations for today's globally popular sport. - Visually lavish year-by-year coverage of ten Formula 1 seasons, presenting photographs, factual information and statistics for each year. - Rainer Schlegelmilch, who first photographed Formula 1 in 1962 and remains active today, is one of the best motor racing photographers ever. - All images are in color, with the emphasis on photographs that enthusiasts will not have seen before, the more obscure cars and drivers sharing space with the familiar and famous. - The story of each race is told through photographs and an accompanying commentary. - Data for each year comprises team/car/driver details, plus complete World Championship rankings for drivers and constructors. - The whole work is smartly designed and presented. - In series with titles covering the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, as well as sister books on sports car racing in the same period.

This book fills the gaps in Formula 1 records. The 70 years of F1 can be neatly divided into two eras at January 1980. At that point the terms “Grand Prix” and “World Championship’ became synonymous. However, until then OVER HALF of F1 races were not included in the Championship for the spurious reason that each country should have just a single race. This does a disservice to the achievements of drivers of the Fangio, Moss, Clark and Stewart era and even more-so to the four pre-championship years which began in 1946. When a commentator says “Rosberg’s 16th win equals the F1 wins of Stirling Moss” this is manifestly untrue. If the same drivers, in the same cars, compete at the same tracks, and over a similar distance, then each race deserves to have its place in the records as a “Championship quality” event. This book includes such races alongside contemporary Championship races and, combined with known figures since 1980, produces what can surely be accepted as “The Real Score” of Formula 1.
