With a foreword by Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing, Formula One: The Legends profiles 32 of F1’s iconic drivers from the 1950s to the present day. As well as examining the racers of the past, such as Jackie Stewart, Alain Prost and Aryton Senna, the text profiles modern-day legends such as Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and legend-in-the-making Max Verstappen.

Uniquely, this book also features stars of the sport who tragically died or were terribly injured before they could realise their true potential, but nevertheless left a lasting legacy.

Decade by decade since the championship was founded, this book profiles the following legends of F1: Ascari, Fangio, Moss, Hawthorn, Brabham, Graham Hill, McLaren, Gurney, Surtees, Clark, Stewart, Rindt, Andretti, Fittipaldi, Lauda, Hunt, Jones, Gilles Villeneuve, Piquet, Prost, Mansell, Senna, Häkkinen, Schumacher, Damon Hill, Button, Alonso, Räikkönen, Rosberg, Vettel, Hamilton, Verstappen.

This is a unique exploration of Formula One racing, with a focus on the most revered Formula One drivers of all time.
