Item description for The Great Encyclopedia of Formula 1: 2007 Edition (Great Encyclopedia of Formula One) by Nigel Roebuck Pierre Menard...

The book in itself is a milestone in motorsport books history. It required 14 years of work from his author, who not only wrote all the texts, but also did more than 400 drawings representing all the cars from all the significant teams having entered the Formula One championship in the past 54 years! This unique feature allows the readers to see at a glance the evolution of all the Williams cars, for instance, since the creation of the team. This huge and heavy (more than 10 pounds) box, with two volumes in fabric-style covers also features more than 1200 photographs, some of them exclusive from the collection of Bernard Cahier, the famous photographer from the '50s. In its last section, the book also gives comprehensive results of all the Grands Prix of the history of F1, from 1950 until today. It features all the lap charts of all the races - despite the fact that the FIA (the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile) itself thought that these lap charts did not exist before 1958! This third edition is entirely updated after the end of the 2006 season. Its page layout has also been improved since the first two editions to put more emphasis on the pictures. In France, the book will be published in its fifth edition this year. It won the prestigious award "Grand Prix du Livre" from the Automobile Festival of Chamonix.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Great Encyclopedia of Formula 1: 2007 Edition (Great Encyclopedia of Formula One)?

great product....hard encasing cover in bad shape  May 20, 2008
The product is really great, especially for F1 fans, who like great pictures, stories, etc...The three books came in perfect form, but the encasing hard semi-box was kinda of broken, a minor detail when thinking on the price paid and it was used.
A great addition to any fans library  Feb 2, 2008
A lot of time and research has gone into this huge volume which in itself deserves 5 stars, except that there are many irritating errors throughout which may be due to the translation from French to English. There are many sentences which just stop in mid sentence and become very irritating after a while. It seems there was no proof reading done before publication. It also boasts a complete driver by driver line up, which I thought would include every F1 driver to date, but only includes the more prominent ones. It does however have a complete list of all teams that have raced in F1 with a complete chapter on each with drawings of all the teams cars raced as well as all the circuits old and new. All in all this is still a must have for any F1 fan.
