"GRAND PRIX DRIVER BY DRIVER" is a comprehensive collection of profiles of the highest quality drivers out of the hundreds who have taken part in Formula 1 since the first world championship race was held at Silverstone, England in 1950. From Fangios dominance of the 1950s, to the dominant era of British Racing Green from 1962 to 1973 thanks to the likes of Brabham, Jim Clark, John Sutees, Graham Hill and Denny Hulme this book explores some of best drivers in the history of Formula 1. With profiles of historic drivers such as Fangio whose record of five World Championship titles stood for 45 years until Schumacher won his sixth championship in 2003 and Stirling Moss, who is considered the best driver to have never won the World Championship title. Along with the more contemporary exploits of Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher, who according to the F1 website is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen" and the recent emergence of young British driver Lewis Hamilton in 2007 who was the first Briton to win a race in the US since John Watson in 1983. Packed with superb illustrations and statistical information, each profile looks at the drivers' standing, successes and iconic moments.
