History of Formula One is an illustrated recounting of the greatest motor sport on the planet. F1 is considered the pinnacle for the simple reason that its cars can go quicker than any other machine. And this has been achieved through years of evolution, which have included radical technological innovations coming to the fore time and again. It has contributed directly to what F1 racing is today, and this book looks through all sixty seasons, tracking the sport?s life curve. With F1 coming to India, there has been much focus on the elements here: Buddh International Circuit, Karun Chandhok and Narain Karthikeyan, and Force India. Take a sneak peek into the glitz and glamour of India?s first Formula One Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit, with personal anecdotes from the motorsport champions, Karun Chandhok and Narain Karthikeyan.
