A Photographic Celebration of F1's Greatest Moments

The adrenaline-fueled, high-octane world of Formula One has created some of the greatest moments in sporting history. Its infamous circuits have played host to intense rivalries that have produced moments of tragedy and triumph that read like a film script. Since the 1950s, Bernard Cahier and his son, Paul- Henri, have been trackside capturing the drama of the Formula One Championships. Their stunning photographs chronicle both the changing face of the teams and their cars, from Lotus and Cooper to Williams and Ferrari, and of course the legendary drivers who have pushed their machines and themselves to the limits. Formula One correspondent Maurice Hamilton brings the stories behind these photographs to life; from the charismatic rivalries of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss and the highly competitive Championship battles of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, through to the historic tales of Monaco’s winding course and the atmospheric crowds of Monza. With over 300 photographs – from the 1950s to the present day – all from The Cahier Archive and many previously unpublished, The Pursuit of Speed is the ultimate celebration of Formula One.

The 19-race Formula 1 World championship season is covered with its usual meticulous attention to detail.

The vastly experienced pair, both long-time paddock insiders, bring you all the drama and intrigue that is Formula 1 in their reportage. Supporting their exhaustive race reports are the traditionally detailed result spreads that include specially prepared and easy to follow lap charts. Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel's charge towards a fourth consecutive title against his perennial challenger Fernando Alonso, has been enlivened by the arrival of Mercedes-Benz as title contenders with the newly-arrived Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg both claiming race victories during the 2013 season. Adding Ferrari-bound Kimi Räikkönen to this heady mix merely spices up an already fascinating championship year that ebbed and flowed across a punishing 9-month race calendar.Mark Hughes once more analyses the successes, frustrations and failures of each of the eleven teams in his Team-By-Team review, which includes team personnel and technical specifications of the F1 cars showcased in the beautiful illustrations by Adrian Dean. Special features for the 2013 edition include the marking of two special milestones, as Williams reached 600 race starts, and McLaren celebrated their 50th Anniversary as a racing team from their humble beginnings back in 1963. The sport's other leading categories are also given lavish coverage in this comprehensive review.

Meanwhile Audi continued their domination of Le Mans in Sports Car Racing, whilst Touring Cars, in all their respective categories, continued to provide door-to door banging combat. Veteran scribe Gordon Kirby continues to give his no-holds barred assessment of the racing year in the United States, as NASCAR continues to dominate, despite welcome signs of a revival of Indy Car racing, highlighted by an emotional victory in the Indianapolis 500 by the enormously popular Brazilian veteran Tony Kanaan.

Pironi

The Champion That Never Was

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 267

View: 5931

Pironi: The Champion that Never Was relates the remarkable story of motor racing's forgotten man, ex-Ferrari F1 driver and offshore powerboat racer, Didier Pironi. The book charts an incredible journey which took the young Parisian to the heights of triumph and the depths of despair. Before he joined the legendary Ferrari stable, Pironi was already a Formula Renault, Le Mans and grand prix winner. By 1982, the time had surely come for the enigmatic Frenchman to become his country's first Formula 1 world champion. He was to come tantalisingly close to achieving that lifetime ambition, ahead in the world championship and in pole position for the German Grand Prix – before crashing so disastrously in practice. Over the next five years he fought a long and painful battle to return to the cockpit to reclaim the title that had eluded him that grim morning. It was not to be. Thereafter Didier turned his attention to offshore powerboating where his remarkable life would come to a shattering end in the icy waters of the English Channel.

AUTOCOURSE THE WORLD'S LEADING GRAND PRIX ANNUAL Launched way back in 1951, AUTOCOURSE is proud of its heritage as an independent publication, which for over sixty years has covered the Grand Prix World Championship in minute detail. At its core are definitive race reports filed by noted motor sport journalists, all of whom are regulars on the circuits and members of the ‘inner sanctum’ of writers who have access to the sport’s movers and shakers. Their reports are backed by the most complete statistical data available, including detailed lap charts, some of which are unique to this publication.

Delving back into the past, readers can delight in the now lost worlds of non-championship F1 racing, Formula 2, F5000, CanAm and the Tasman Series, which boasted many of the leading drivers of the day among their competitors. One of the greatest strengths of AUTOCOURSE through the years has been its superb photographic coverage. Many of the world’s leading motor sport photographers have been regular contributors, their images providing the ultimate pictorial record of each racing season. In a fast changing world, AUTOCOURSE retains its position as the definitive record of each season’s motor sport.
