This book is the first in a multi-volume, decade-by-decade series covering the entire history of Formula 1 through its teams and cars. The series launches with the 1960s, when the British came to predominate after the rule of Italian and German manufacturers in the previous decade. All ten World Champions of the decade came from the English-speaking world - Britain, the USA, Australia and New Zealand - and most of the successful cars were British-built too, from Cooper, BRM, Lotus and Brabham. This was an era when small teams and privateers were involved in significant numbers and they are all covered, all the way to the most obscure and unsuccessful. This book shines new light on many areas of the sport and will be treasured by all Formula 1 enthusiasts. Year-by-year treatment covers each season in fascinating depth, running through the teams - and their various cars - in order of importance. Works teams form the core of the book: BRM, Ferrari and Lotus participated throughout the decade, while Cooper, Porsche, Honda, Brabham, Eagle, McLaren and Matra were the other winning marques. Privateer teams in all their colourful diversity are a special dimension of this book, topped by Rob Walker Racing, the finest privateer operation in Formula 1 history, and a winner in this decade with Stirling Moss and Jo Siffert. Privateers range from well-known names to one-race wonders long forgotten by even the most dedicated enthusiasts. Over 400 photos - in colour wherever possible - show every type of car raced by every team, presenting a comprehensive survey of all participants. The sweep of the decade covers rapid technical development, including monocoque chassis, ever-wider tyres and aerodynamic wings. Detailed text includes car specifications and technical essentials.

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.

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.

Conceived by Colin Chapman, the Lotus 72 is one of the most successful Formula 1 cars ever made. This innovative car – with its wedge-shaped profile, side-mounted radiators and inboard front brakes – was driven during 1970 by Jochen Rindt, Formula 1’s posthumous World Champion, and also gave Emerson Fittipaldi the World Champion's crown in 1972. Here, in this new Haynes Manual, is a unique perspective on what it takes to restore, maintain and race a Lotus 72, as well as an insight into the design and engineering of this legendary racing car.

This is the emotional story of Patrick Tambay's rollercoaster Formula 1 ride with Ferrari. The saga began in 1982 with the tragedy of his friend and fellow driver Gilles Villeneuve's death in the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder and then unfolded as Tambay took Villeneuve's place in car number 27, achieved race victories and, as the 1983 season developed, fought for the World Championship. Told in 27 chapters, this is a tale not only of Formula 1 in those colourful years but also a rare and revealing account of life inside Maranello in the twilight of the Enzo Ferrari era, supported by magnificent photographs by Paul-Henri Cahier. - British GP, 1982: at Brands Hatch Tambay's second race for Ferrari brings his first-ever podium finish, in his 51st Formula 1 start. - German GP, 1982: after team-mate Didier Pironi's career-ending crash during practice at Hockenheim, Tambay lifts his sombre Ferrari team with his first Formula 1 win. - Italian GP, 1982: in front of Ferrari's emotional home crowd at Monza, Tambay finishes second, with the great Mario Andretti, his team-mate for this one race, behind him in third place. - San Marino GP, 1983: Tambay delivers exactly what the Scuderia's fans desire - victory at Imola for the number 27 Ferrari 12 months after Gilles's last race. - South African GP, 1983: Tambay's farewell race for Ferrari sees him on pole position (his sixth front-row start in seven races), but a mechanical failure denies him any chance of a final victory.

The extraordinary events of the 1982 Formula One season are still hard to believe 25 years on. Most memorable of all was the thrilling fight for the title -- the 16 races were won by 11 different drivers -- and the controversy surrounding the deaths of three men, two of them Grand Prix icons. There were also ominous subcurrents, not least the FOCA-FISA war, the struggle between the turbo and normally aspirated teams, and the driver rebellion over super licenses. Packed with fresh insight from interviews and new research, this superbly illustrated all-color book captures all the drama of a remarkable year.

We don’t have an energy crisis. We have a consumption crisis. And this book, which takes aim at cherished assumptions regarding energy, offers refreshingly straight talk about what’s wrong with the way we think and talk about the problem. Though we generally believe we can solve environmental problems with more energy—more solar cells, wind turbines, and biofuels—alternative technologies come with their own side effects and limitations. How, for instance, do solar cells cause harm? Why can’t engineers solve wind power’s biggest obstacle? Why won’t contraception solve the problem of overpopulation lying at the heart of our concerns about energy, and what will? This practical, environmentally informed, and lucid book persuasively argues for a change of perspective. If consumption is the problem, as Ozzie Zehner suggests, then we need to shift our focus from suspect alternative energies to improving social and political fundamentals: walkable communities, improved consumption, enlightened governance, and, most notably, women’s rights. The dozens of first steps he offers are surprisingly straightforward. For instance, he introduces a simple sticker that promises a greater impact than all of the nation’s solar cells. He uncovers why carbon taxes won’t solve our energy challenges (and presents two taxes that could). Finally, he explores how future environmentalists will focus on similarly fresh alternatives that are affordable, clean, and can actually improve our well-being. Watch a book trailer.

Pironi: The Champion that Never Was relates the remarkable story of motor racing's forgotten man, ex-Ferrari F1 driver and offshore powerboat racer, Didier Pironi. The book charts an incredible journey which took the young Parisian to the heights of triumph and the depths of despair. Before he joined the legendary Ferrari stable, Pironi was already a Formula Renault, Le Mans and grand prix winner. By 1982, the time had surely come for the enigmatic Frenchman to become his country's first Formula 1 world champion. He was to come tantalisingly close to achieving that lifetime ambition, ahead in the world championship and in pole position for the German Grand Prix – before crashing so disastrously in practice. Over the next five years he fought a long and painful battle to return to the cockpit to reclaim the title that had eluded him that grim morning. It was not to be. Thereafter Didier turned his attention to offshore powerboating where his remarkable life would come to a shattering end in the icy waters of the English Channel.
