Brief History of Formula 1 Competition

Motor racing emerged in France during the 1890s. The first official road race took place between Paris and Bordeaux in 1895 and was won by Emile Levassor. The inaugural Grand Prix was staged at Le Mans in 1901.

Formula 1 racing was initiated for 1500cc cars at the end of World War Two. ‘Formula’ refers to standardised rules that all competitors must follow and the number ‘1’ is included to signify it is the highest class of motor racing. Other European Grand Prix races had become popular in the run up to the conflict and the governing body of racing - FIA - began to plan a Formula 1 World Championship. Juan Manuel Fangio, driving for Maserati, became the first F1 world champion in 1950. He went on to dominate the sport during the first decade of competition and he influenced many future F1 drivers with his relaxed style of driving. Formula One now has a calendar featuring almost twenty Grand Prix races, which take place all over the world.

Highlights of the Formula One Book

The Personalised F1 Books open during a great period of British dominance, which took place between the late 1950s and early 1970s. Lotus, BRM and Cooper were key F1 Teams throughout this era and the 1960s featured world championship wins for Jim Clark, Graham Hill and John Surtees. Jim Clark was one of the most naturally gifted drivers in the history of Formula 1 and his death at Hockenheim in 1968 was a tragic end to a wonderful career. In addition to a report on this horrendous crash, the F1 Book covers the success of Clark’s protégé, Jackie Stewart. It also incorporates a story on James Hunt winning the Formula 1 World Championship with McLaren in 1976. Hunt would be the last British World Champion for sixteen years.

This Formula 1 gift goes on to feature newspaper coverage on world championship wins for legendary drivers such as Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher. The Personalised Formula 1 Book includes all seven of Schumacher’s victories and a story covering the shocking crash and subsequent death of Ayrton Senna in 1994.

British drivers once again rose in prominence during the 1980s, led by Nigel Mansell. Damon Hill and David Coulthard would also later enjoy racing success and we also feature Jenson Button’s first Grand Prix win in 2006. A highlight of the Personalised Book is the extensive coverage of Lewis Hamilton’s rise to the top of Formula One. The Gift Book includes Hamilton’s third place finish in his 2007 debut and a selection of fantastic victories, such as the Monaco and British Grand Prix wins of 2008. These great results contributed to Hamilton becoming the youngest ever World Champion at the end of his second F1 season. He eventually won the championship for McLaren by finishing fifth in the Brazil Grand Prix. A report on this record-breaking win is featured in the Formula 1 Book.

For the motorsport fan who is difficult to buy for I bought this book for my son for Christmas; it might just be me but I find the males in one's life difficult to buy for! My son races (club racing), as did his Dad before him so he's been surrounded by motors and motor-sport fans all his life. He loves anything to do with cars or trucks or engines ... a real petrol head. And enjoys all forms of motor sport. Ideal gifts for him would always be the things he can buy better himself (car parts and performance wear) but when I found this compilation of news reports I knew I'd found something he'd truly appreciate and never expect. He was delighted. The book is beautifully bound and arrived well packaged and in immaculate condition. It's a lovely gift. 03 January 2014
