Christmas Gift Ideas: Haynes F1 Book

Got an F1 fan in the family? How's about this for a gift idea then? Less than two weeks after the final race in Brazil, The Official Formula 1 Season Review 2011 is published this week by Haynes. The 280-page book, which includes over 500 stunning photographs, comprehensive race reports and in-depth technical analysis, catalogues a thrilling season. In his foreword to the book, Bernie Ecclestone reflects on the characters and technologies that have dominated 2011: "Sebastian is definitely the best guy there is at the moment. He reminds me a lot of Jochen Rindt – as everyone knows I was very close with Jochen. I like Fernando too, he’s a good friend of mine. He’s suffered this year through no fault of his – the car isn’t down to him. Lewis went through a little bit of a bad period, which lots of people do in life, and I think he’ll probably reflect on his performance. Meanwhile, Jenson has been on form, and why shouldn’t he be as good as Lewis?" The Haynes’ Official Formula 1 Season Review 2011 provides an unrivalled 'access-all-areas' pass to learn first-hand the details behind the stories of the season's 19 races and Sebastian Vettel's second successive World Championship title. The key personalities involved, including the drivers, plus senior team personnel, throw new light on many of the season's headlines and incidents, presenting an authoritative account of the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.  In addition to comprehensive race reports, superb feature content includes a look behind the scenes at the development of each of the 12 teams' cars over the year, an appraisal by each of the 28 drivers of his own season, and a discussion by a 'round table' of paddock insiders who get together to debate the leading trends and topics of the 2011 season. The Official Formula 1 Season Review captures a stunning season of on-track battles and off-track wrangles and controversies, where despite an increasing emphasis on technology and regulation, the performance of a champion demonstrates that Formula One is still about the driver. The Official Formula 1TM Season Review 2011 is available from all good bookshops and direct from Haynes at or call 01963 442030, priced £30.00
