Formula One: The Champions: 70 years of legendary F1 drivers A01 By (author) N Maurice Hamilton A08 By (photographer) N Bernard Cahier A08 By (photographer) N Paul-Henri Cahier 304 248 BB Hardback 240 Aurum Press Aurum Press London United Kingdom WSPC1 Formula 1 & Grand Prix 1.3 SMFA Car racing Since the Grand Prix's start in 1950 just 33 men have achieved the accolade of F1 World Champion. For the first time, legendary F1 commentator Maurice Hamilton and award-winning photographers Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier bring the heroes of this iconic sport together, in a stunning photographic portrayal of the poise, skill and winning mindset that separates the fast from the furious, the elite from the talented. With exclusive quotes from icons such as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, and including Maurice's historic interviews with the sport's lost heroes - including James Hunt and Aryton Senna - F1: The Champions is a beautiful tribute to the most ferocious of sports and the incredible sportsmen who drive at the edge in pursuit of greatness. "A must-have for anyone interested in the stories of Formula One drivers, their professional lives and racing careers." -- Bruce Herrington * PANDO Magazine * 'This is a book that once opened, you will not want to put down until you have thumbed through all 240 pages.' * Our man behind the wheel * 'Fine writing is complemented by great imagery provided by Paul-Henri and Bernard Cahier.' * Motorsport magazine * 'The redoubtable scribe Maurice Hamilton explores every single one of those 33 remarkable people in his latest work... for this he has teamed up with father and son Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier of the Cahier Archive Photographic Collection. The trio is well-placed to take on the task... it all ensures that in this book each champion receives a lavish portrait in words and pictures. Great value and highly recommended.' * Motorsport News * 'The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words certainly applies here. With Hamilton's profiles being succinct, it allows the iconic Cahier Archive - built by Bernard and his son Paul-Henri - to come to the forefront and leave a lasting impression on the reader... Hamilton and the Cahier Archive have combined again to create a statement piece which would be a very worthy addition to your Formula 1 collection. 4/5 - Highly recommended.' * PlanetF1 * Maurice Hamilton has been part of the Formula One scene since 1977 and was the Observer's motor racing correspondent for 20 years. He has written more than 20 books as well as commentating on Formula One for BBC Radio. He is now actively involved with the online community on Twitter and writes several blogs whilst continuing to write books about racing. The Cahier Archive is the only photographic collection covering the history of the Formula One Championship to have remained in the hands of its original authors. Two photographers have built this archive: Bernard Cahier and his son Paul-Henri, giving the collection two very different styles. Bernard was a reporter and had the gift to make people truly live events through his pictures. Paul-Henri, on the other hand, has always leaned towards an artistic approach to photography. The common ground of their photos though, is that they always go beyond the illustrative dimension. 03032020 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 35.00 0.00 35.00 This price includes a tax element GB 20 Available 1 BERT GARD Y Since the Grand Prix's start in 1950 just 33 men have achieved the accolade of F1 World Champion.
