Gr. 5^-8. Racing fans and kids who go crazy over cars will be the audience for this photo-essay on the world of Renault Formula 1 motor racing. Using the by now well-known DK format, the book takes readers into the world of Grand Prix racing, introducing the racing team and showing how it designs and engineers its cars (with a spread devoted to topics like circuits and fuel). The book also looks at the gear and driving techniques of the drivers and takes readers behind the scenes at a race. Other topics covered include safety and what happens to drivers once they give up racing. Certainly one of the best-looking books on automobile racing to come down the pike. Ilene CooperReview:
Follow race car drivers, owners, and manufacturers' efforts in this excellent visual display which should attract not only youngsters of all ages, but many an adult. This covers everything from the technology of building sports and racing cars to the making and practice of a Formula 1 driver. A fine, inviting book. -- Midwest Book Review
