Item description for Autocourse 2001-2002 by Alan Henry...

At the end of each season, Grand Prix enthusiasts and collectors eagerly anticipate the release of the world's leading Formula 1 yearbook. The 49th installment will be no exception, with complete coverage of every championship round. Dramatic color images from the sport's leading photographers accompany detailed race reports, in-depth analyses, and complete statistics. In addition, there's the much-awaited top-ten driver rankings, and a team-by-team guide and topical features that provide insight to the various aspects of the 1999 season. Additional color coverage of the American racing scene, Le Mans, Formula 3, Formula 3000 and Super Tourers make this an indispensable reference.

Outline Review
This authoritative annual on Grand Prix racing is in its 47th year of publication. The 1997-98 volume includes a foreword by the 1997 title winner Jacques Villeneuve, the first driver to win the championship after just two full seasons of Grand Prix racing. As usual, this large, attractive volume is packed with color photos, statistics, bios, commentary from the experts, and analyses of the year's races.

Reviews - What do customers think about Autocourse 2001-2002?

Hamilton Love Fest  May 9, 2008
I look forward to Autocourse every year. My first hint that something wasn't quite right, was a pre-production photo I saw of the cover: Lewis Hamilton/McLaren. This was after Kimi Raikkonnen already won the WDC.

So I order anyway. The copy I received had a different cover, appropriate to the World Champion. But almost every single race report begins with ecstatic ravings about Lewis Hamilton, whether he won the race or not.

Even worse, Autocourse gave Hamilton the #1 driver position in the annual top ten rating! The guy blew the championship! Kimi fought hard and won it, yet he gets #2 status.

Alonso, the reigning WDC is treated as an afterthought throughout.

Buy it for the history, but you can't overlook the blatant favoritism throughout this issue. Not balanced reporting at all.
Autocourse still the best  Apr 5, 2008
Autocourse remains the finest of all F-1 season reviews being published. Because it has a 57 year history (as of 2008 ) it has become a collectors item that ranks it a must have for any F-1 aficionado. The photographs are the years best from all of the who's who of F-1 photographers. Paul Henri Cahier, Darren Heath, Patrick Gosling, and Bryn Williams all are represented here in stunning fashion.
The reviews of the races and the stories that made the year in F-1 what is was are condensed brilliantly between the covers and make great reading even years later. Any person who is an F-1 junkie and is looking for something from his era of F-1 to pass on to the next generation with pride, Autocourse is it.
For Anglophiles only  Feb 19, 2008
The blatant pro-McLaren, anti-Alonso bias of this book is unfortunate, and stands out all the more with what has happened since the book went to press. For example, the book states, as purported fact, that Ron Dennis and McLaren management were entirely innocent in the Stepneygate affair, and were unfairly dragged into the matter through no fault of their own by the actions of a single bad apple.

The rules of objective reporting exist for a reason, and this book's editors would look a lot less ridiculous had they followed them.
i remember buying the 2005 official book and this autocourse 2005, i was dissapointed with the official book because they dont have pictures of the most important events from the races, like kimi raikkonen's last lap pass on fisichella at suzuka. the offical guide didnt even have a picture of it! while this autocourse book, had a two page picture of raikkonen just inches away from fisichella's renault about to take the lead. it blew my mind. if youre a rabid formula 1 fan that just loves a lot of photographs, this is for you. ive been collecting formula 1 articles and i must say this is definitely what i wait for every year. theres so much more on offer with autocourse!
Great F1 Book.  Oct 2, 2006
Great pictures and commentary. Great coffee table book. Tons of stats and info. on F1 teams and drivers. I bought 2000-2001 through 2004-2005. I've enjoyed these books and look forward to buying future and some older issues.
