Bask in Formula One glory with this 240-page, large-format tribute to all 33 F1 World Champions, featuring exhilarating photography and expert commentary.

Since the Grand Prix's start in 1950, just 33 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 33 F1 World Champions, with key details from the driver's life and F1 careerStunning photography of the drivers and their cars, both on and off the trackHistoric interviews with the sport's lost heroes, including James Hunt and Ayrton SennaExclusive quotes from icons such as Lewis Hamilton and Nico RosbergA foreword by Bernie Ecclestone, former chief executive of the Formula One Group Debate has raged over which driver is the best of the best. It is impossible to say. But that will not deter energetic and informed discussion, usually predicated on a personal preference swayed by affection. Each of these champions will have experienced and delivered pulse-raising performances many times over.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words certainly applies here. 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... Hamilton and the Cahier Archive have combined again to create a statement piece which would be a very worthy addition to your Formula 1 collection. 4/5 - Highly recommended.' * PlanetF1 *
'The redoubtable scribe Maurice Hamilton explores every single one of those 33 remarkable people in his latest work... for this he has teamed up with father and son Bernard and Paul-Henri Cahier of the Cahier Archive Photographic Collection. The trio is well-placed to take on the task... it all ensures that in this book each champion receives a lavish portrait in words and pictures.
Great value and highly recommended.' * Motorsport News *
'Fine writing is complemented by great imagery provided by Paul-Henri and Bernard Cahier.' * Motorsport magazine *
'This is a book that once opened, you will not want to put down until you have thumbed through all 240 pages.' * Our man behind the wheel *
