Description

The first edition of this book was groundbreaking: an entire book dedicated to F1 records and trivia, which proved hugely popular with F1 enthusiasts and fans of racing statistics. This new second edition is fully updated, with up-to-date stats, and an extended narrative including many amusing, and some serious, stories from the history of F1. There are performance records of every driver, every car constructor, and every engine make to have taken part, a detailed insight into the variety of qualifying procedures throughout the years, a summary of regulation changes since 1950 and a quick reference guide to every grand prix result. Performances are analysed by nationality, youngest/oldest, fastest/slowest, consecutive wins, poles, most wins at different circuits, and lots more. It's not just focused on drivers and cars, but circuits, engines and tyres too. A comprehensive photographic section depicts the changing scene of Formula 1 since its inception in 1950. This book will be an invaluable reference book, that will both entertain and provide definitive data at your fingertips.

Author Biography

David Hayhoe was born in Beckenham, Kent in 1954 and educated at Hawes Down Secondary School, West Wickham. His professional career as a Civil Servant began at the age of 17 in London, a career which was to last 33 years. He began in the Department of the Environment in 1971, in housing and road construction statistics, and moved to IT in 1986. He progressed to Aviation Security in 1990 and was an inspector of the airports and airlines throughout the UK from 1992 until he opted for voluntary early retirement in 2004. Alongside his professional career, he developed a Formula 1 database and has written and contributed to numerous Formula 1 books, media guides, magazines and newspapers since the 1980s. His first book was the Grand Prix Data Book in 1989 (published by Haynes), followed by three further editions. It led to being invited to be the statistician for the prestigious Autocourse Grand Prix annual in 1991, a position he has held ever since. In 2016 he self-published the first edition of his latest venture, Formula 1 The Knowledge. This was well-received globally and has led to more ideas to make the second edition even more comprehensive.
