This richly illustrated photographic essay captures the human drama and technical ingenuity that have characterized Grand Prix motor racing since the first event in 1906. Most of the photos are published here for the first time. Beginning with wonderful images from glass-plate negatives, the book graphically tells the story of the iconic cars that changed the sport and the men who raced them-including Nazzaro, Nuvolari, Caracciola, Fangio, Moss, Clark, Prost, Senna, Schumacher, and many more-ending with Fernando Alonso's historic championship in 2005. This book provides insights into the highly competitive people who have advanced this sport and evolved its technology. This book is due to be published in June 2006.
