Formula 1: The Autobiography is the history of Grand Prix racing, as told by its leading players - the drivers, team bosses, designers, pit crews, personalities and camp followers. Direct, dramatic and unvarnished, their words capture the essence of the phenomenon that is Formula 1.

Here are the voices, memories and observations - often controversial - of the protagonists who have acted out the high drama at the pinnacle of motorsport, from its raw origins over a century ago to the high-tech, high-octane, high-finance F1 circus currently touring the world.

Led by internationally acclaimed editor and author Gerald Donaldson, a team of distinguished motorsport writers has compiled an oral history of Formula 1 that encompasses its highs and lows - capturing the grime as well as the glitz, the pain as well as the passion.

To reach the widest market possible, the editorial team has unearthed a treasure-trove of information to enthral even the most ardent enthusiast, while keeping the overall story accessible for the ever-increasing number of fans discovering F1 for the first time. The sport's annual TV viewing figures are rivalled only by those for the Olympics and football World Cup - held only once every four years. The cumulative audience for just one F1 season is a staggering 53 billion people.

Lavishly illustrated, Formula 1: The Autobiography draws on a wide variety of photographic archives, including personal collections made available especially for this book, which provide fresh insights into the sport and enhance the compelling text.

This hugely ambitious project is the definitive record of the greatest sporting spectacle in the world today, in all its many moods.
