Product Description

Publisher: Haynes Publishing (Sept 2011)

Author: Paul Parker

Building on the success of Haynes's three previous Formula 1 titles in this series, which cover the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, this book takes a nostalgic look at the 1950s. Offering the same combination of informative text, race statistics and glorious photography, much of it in colour, it brings alive the heroic era of Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Alberto Ascari, Froilan Gonzalez, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn. For many fans, this was the era when Formula 1 was at its peak - thrilling and dangerous, but still a sport. (hb)
