Since the Grand Prix’s start in 1950, just 34 men have achieved the accolade of F1 World Champion. For the first time, legendary F1 commentator Maurice Hamilton and award-winning photographers Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier bring the heroes of this iconic sport together, in a stunning photographic portrayal of the poise, skill and winning mindset that separates the fast from the furious, the elite from the talented.
Formula One and its champions are brought to life with:
- An exquisitely written profile of each of the 34 F1 World Champions, with key details from the driver’s life and F1 career
- Stunning photography of the drivers and their cars, both on and off the track
- Historic interviews with the sport’s lost heroes, including James Hunt and Ayrton Senna
- Exclusive quotes from icons such as Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg
- A foreword by Bernie Ecclestone, former chief executive of the Formula One Group
With this handsome homage to the most ferocious of sports and the incredible sportsmen who drive at the edge in pursuit of greatness, it is time to choose your favorite F1 Champion.

With Hamilton’s profiles being succinct, it allows the iconic Cahier Archive – built by Bernard and his son Paul-Henri – to come to the forefront and leave a lasting impression on the reader...
