First published in 2016, this updated, extended and bang up to date second edition includes a quite astonishing level of Grand Prix detail and trivia from 1950 through to 2018.
Naturally all the major facts and figures are included - drivers, constructors, cars, engines, tyres etc but it’s the quirky ones that make this book so very different from the many other record books published on F1.
If you think this is simply a dry reference book full of dusty stats you’d be very wrong. It’s actually a highly absorbing, interesting, revealing and entertaining work that gives a completely new slant and new ideas on how to look at Formula 1 past and present.

Published by Veloce Publishing Ltd (www.veloce.co.uk). Hardback, 270mm H x 210mm W, 544 pages, 90 colour pictures. ISBN 978-1-787112-37-7.

B45 Lotus 72 By Pete Lyons

Foreword by Emerson Fittipaldi who drove a 72 for the best part of 4 seasons from 1970 to 1973
Arguably the greatest F1 car ever, the Type 72 was designed by Colin Chapman and Maurice Philippe for the 1970 Grand Prix season. The 72 was revolutionary and a big step up from its predecessor - the very successful Type 49 - with inboard front discs, mid-mounted radiators and torsion bar suspension all wrapped in a sharp wedge body. In typical Lotus fashion it set new standards in F1 design and competed for an unprecedented 6 seasons winning 20 races, 3 Constructors’ titles and 2 Drivers’ Championships. It also carried two of the most iconic liveries in F1 history - the eye-catching Gold Leaf red, white and gold and the legendary black and gold of the JPS period.
The author, Pete Lyons, is a renowned motorsport journalist and was Autosport magazine’s F1 correspondent when the 72 made its debut right through to its retirement. He was on the scene throughout the 72’s long career and is therefore the perfect person to write its history. He once declared the 72 ‘my favourite Lotus’ and in this book he tells us why.
This wonderful book charts the story of the 72 in great detail and race-by-race from midway through 1970 to 1975. Lyons’ knowledgeable and insightful text is supported by over 325 magnificent and mainly colour photographs. Beautifully printed on high quality paper this will make an ideal Christmas present and is something of a bargain at £50.
