"From oil-covered shirts and racing goggles to fireproof racing suits and state-of-the-art helmets, from a laborious tyre change to a ten-second full car service, from the humble acceptance of a simple winner's laurel to the razzmatazz of a champagne-spraying podium celebration, the photographs in this book have been chosen to transport the reader through the decades from the daredevil nature of racing at the turn of the century, when a mechanic rode alongside the driver, to the global phenomenon that is Formula One today, where the closest a race engineer might get to the car is to the keyboard of a car-monitoring laptop."--Jacket." ;
