This book is the first in a multi-volume, decade-by-decade series covering the entire history of Formula 1 through its teams and cars. The series launches with the 1960s, when the British came to predominate after the rule of Italian and German manufacturers in the previous decade. All ten World Champions of the decade came from the English-speaking world - Britain, the USA, Australia and New Zealand - and most of the successful cars were British-built too, from Cooper, BRM, Lotus and Brabham. This was an era when small teams and privateers were involved in significant numbers and they are all covered, all the way to the most obscure and unsuccessful. This book shines new light on many areas of the sport and will be treasured by all Formula 1 enthusiasts. Year-by-year treatment covers each season in fascinating depth, running through the teams - and their various cars - in order of importance. Works teams form the core of the book: BRM, Ferrari and Lotus participated throughout the decade, while Cooper, Porsche, Honda, Brabham, Eagle, McLaren and Matra were the other winning marques. Privateer teams in all their colourful diversity are a special dimension of this book, topped by Rob Walker Racing, the finest privateer operation in Formula 1 history, and a winner in this decade with Stirling Moss and Jo Siffert. Privateers range from well-known names to one-race wonders long forgotten by even the most dedicated enthusiasts. Over 400 photos - in colour wherever possible - show every type of car raced by every team, presenting a comprehensive survey of all participants. The sweep of the decade covers rapid technical development, including monocoque chassis, ever-wider tyres and aerodynamic wings. Detailed text includes car specifications and technical essentials.

The 1980s was a momentous decade in Formula 1 and this all-colour book, featuring magnificent images by the renowned German photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch, captures the extraordinary drama of that period. Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell all made their debuts in this decade and became, with Nelson Piquet, the stars of the era - they were arch rivals equipped, at one stage, with the most powerful racing engines of all time. McLaren and Williams first established themselves as regular winners in this period, and these teams, with Ferrari, remain big players today. This was a decade when Formula 1 was transformed by political upheaval, technical innovation and extended TV coverage, all of which laid the foundations for today's globally popular sport. - Visually lavish year-by-year coverage of ten Formula 1 seasons, presenting photographs, factual information and statistics for each year. - Rainer Schlegelmilch, who first photographed Formula 1 in 1962 and remains active today, is one of the best motor racing photographers ever. - All images are in color, with the emphasis on photographs that enthusiasts will not have seen before, the more obscure cars and drivers sharing space with the familiar and famous. - The story of each race is told through photographs and an accompanying commentary. - Data for each year comprises team/car/driver details, plus complete World Championship rankings for drivers and constructors. - The whole work is smartly designed and presented. - In series with titles covering the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, as well as sister books on sports car racing in the same period.
