This book charts the course of every Formula One Grand Prix circuit, providing a map of each, with images, commentary, and key statistics

Formula One Grand Prix racing is the ultimate motor racing challenge and has been a global competition since 1950. It attracts the best drivers in the world and is raced on some of the toughest courses. 70 circuits have held Formula One races, with seven to 20 circuits used each season. Former courses, along with historical photographs, are shown, including Dallas, Le Mans (France), Mosport Park (Canada), and Kyalami (South Africa). Today’s state-of-the-art courses are included, such as Hockenheim (Germany), Interlagos (Brazil), Monza (Italy), Silverstone (U.K.), and Yas Marina (Abu Dhabi). Each course map is accompanied by statistics for every circuit, including total length, dates it has held Grand Prix, lap records and lengths, and a list of winners.

Review:

`A perfect petrolhead Christmas present. A beautifully collated collection of the 71 venues to have hosted an F1 race since 1950. It is a chance to revel in some of the great lost circuits.' The Observer, Sports Writers Picks of 2015 "Racetracks have a life and personality of their own, and this book, beautifully conceived, reflects that fact." New York Times `A petrol head's dream' Daily Star `This is a handsome tome. The diligence of [Hamilton's] research is faultless and the result is an excellent book, complete with maps and statistics for the 71 tracks that have been used in F1.' Guardian
