Overview

Even more of the most beautiful and successful Formula 1 race cars in history, presented in a way they have never been seen before. Formula 1: the pinnacle of motorsports. This is the world's most popular form of racing, featuring the world's greatest drivers competing in the most technologically advanced cars ever created, machines designed and built by some of history's most brilliant engineering minds. For the original edition of Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, master automotive photographer James Mann brought a selection of these spectacular machines into the studio, portraying not just their engineering brilliance, but also their inherent beauty— the fascinating results of Formula 1's mix of competition, creativity, and human ingenuity has made these vehicles into works of art. Now, in this new and updated edition, Mann has gone behind the lens once again to bring you even more of history's most astounding racing vehicles, from the Alfa Romeo 158 that carried Giuseppe Farina to the first F1 world championship in 1950 all the way through to the present day, with models from Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren, and all of racing's premier Formula 1 engineers. With historical and technological profiles by Formula 1 writer Stuart Codling and insightful commentary from designer Gordon Murray, creator of multiple championship-winning cars, the revised and updated Art of the Formula 1 Race Car continues its tradition as the ultimate homage to the ultimate breed of race car. Discover what Road & Track magazine called "the perfect blend of pictures, analysis and the racing history of these remarkable racing machines."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With additional commentary by Gordon Murray and stunning studio photography by James Mann, this work is the perfect blend of pictures, analysis and the racing history of these remarkable racing machines." - Road & Track

“I think there is little doubt that any F1 fan – or any motorsport fan, for that matter, and perhaps a wider swath than that – will enjoy this book. It’s more than worth checking out.” – Formula1Blog.com  

“April 12, 2010 will see another coffee table book on Formula One. This desirable new entry from Motorbooks International, Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, features studio photographs of some of the most significant cars of the post war championship era. The photos serve to make the book gorgeous, the words that accompany James Mann’s photos, plus archive photos from LAT and teams, are from Stuart Codling. Codling has covered Grand Prix racing for over a decade and was picked by Peter Windsor for the book when Windsor couldn’t accept the assignment. Gordon Murray adds his own perspective with comments on the cars selected for the book. Murray worked on and designed several so his knowledge is first hand. This is a book destined for the libraries of any true motorsports fan, not just those who love Grand Prix racing. Not every great development started with a great team. You may be surprised where some ideas started. Look for the Art of the Formula 1 Race Car at your local book seller. You’ll be glad you bought it.” – MotorSportsForum.com

“In a chance to see Formula One cars when they are not moving at high speed, the book aims to display the vehicles as works of art. The collection of images covers nearly 60 years of motoring and, although the top speeds of the cars may have changed over time, it is clear to see that the beauty of their designs remains as captivating as ever.” – CNN.com

“I can’t put this book down.” - Autocar.co.uk

“Art of the Formula 1 Race Car” has instantly placed itself among my favourite motorsport books. What marks this book out from your regular coffee table F1 photo album however, is Stuart Codling’s wonderfully written commentary. Stuart perfectly captures not only the stories behind the concept, design and realization of these magnificent cars, but also manages to provide a history of their racing careers whilst also reflecting the heartstring-pulling passion which their sumptuous lines evoke. And with expert analysis from design legend Gordon Murray, you’re pretty much in F1 heaven.” - Willthef1journo.wordpress.com

“Codling’s pairing with Murray, a former chief designer at Brabham under one Bernie Ecclestone, is pretty ingenious, as it adds a technical but also lyrical perspective to the historical focus of Codling’s writings. But it probably is not going to be either of their work that immediately grabs – and holds – readers’ attention. It will be the stunning and artful, often intimate, photograph by James Mann, whose work has appeared in too many magazines and books to name. His photograph captures a key aspect to the history of Formula 1, the changing and evolving designs of the machines in which drivers both fearless and slightly mad have done battle for 60 years. It’s pretty cool, for sure. And the front and rear shots of the car are nothing but beautiful. It’s more than worth checking out.” – Formula1Blog.com

“April 12, 2010 will see another coffee table book on Formula One. This desirable new entry from Motorbooks International, Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, features studio photographs of some of the most significant cars of the post-war championship era. The photos serve to make the book gorgeous, the words that accompany James Mann’s photos, plus archive photos from LAT and teams, are from Stuart Codling. Most F1 fans will speed through it then keep coming back time after time, reviewing and learning some new bit of information every time.” – The MotorSports Forum

“… book filled with the most beautifully-captured selection of Formula One’s most evocative machinery. Sorry to come over all gushing but we really do love this book this much – we waited with eager anticipation and were not disappointed.” – VivaF1.com

“Each car is brought to live in page after page of close-up pictures exposing their intricacies fabulous detail. If F1 car technology is your thing, you simply have to buy this book.” – F1Fanatic.co.uk

“Stuart Codling's "Art of the Formula 1 Race Car" is best described as a book for everyone, for everywhere, written by one of the most naturally gifted writers I have had the pleasure of meeting in the F1 paddock, and without doubt one of the most talented wordsmiths to have graced the world of F1. Along with the well-written prose, the stunning photography by James Mann of 18 of the sport's most iconic and innovative cars marks it out as a must-have book for any motorsport fan.” – Manipef1.com

    The Art of the Formula 1 Race Car hits the mark

    This book covers several race cars dating back to the beginning of
    Formula 1 in 1950. If you like open wheel racing, this book has many breath taking photos of cars driven by the greatest of the great. From Jimmy Clark's Lotus in British Racing Green to maybe the greatest car ever built, the Mclaren MP 4/4 driven by Ayrton Senna, this book covers the cars that Formula 1 fans respect. There are many cars addressed in this book including a Ferrari driven by 7 time Champion Michael Schumacher
    the Mclaren driven by 2008 Champion Lewis Hamiltons Mclaren. The photos are magnificent alone and the book is reasonably priced!
