70 years on the track, through the collection of Peter Nygaard, a unique retrospective.
Since its birth in 1950, racing fans all over the world have been attracted by Formula One. In addition to those who attend Grands Prix, there are now almost 1.8 billion television spectators following each F1 season, with the Monaco Grand Prix alone attracting more than 100 million viewers.
In this monumental book, Peter Nygaard, historian, photographer and motorsport collector, opens up his exclusive, never-before-seen archives to tell the story of Formula 1, from the first Grand Prix in the 1950s to today's high-tech, ultra-media races.
With 480 pages, organized chronologically by decade, the book recounts through images and texts the legendary champions - Fangio, Stewart, Lauda, Prost, Senna, Schumacher, Hamilton - the greatest victories, the accidents in the race, the evolution of the cars, the hard work of mechanics in paddocks and pits.
The book is extraordinarily rich, with detailed car data sheets and track records of drivers and manufacturers from 1950 to 2020.
The large-format pages provide numerous anecdotes and unpublished information for each decade. Another highlight of the book: Peter Nygaard provides magnificent multi-visual pages illustrating the evolution of the cars' cockpits, drivers' equipment and mechanical and aerodynamic technology over 70 years.
With more than 400 mostly unpublished images from the author's personal collection, this exceptional work offers all Formula 1 enthusiasts a unique and original vision.
