FORMULA 1 2000 ANALISI TECNICA (Ferrari Campioni del Mondo)

Giorgio Piola, an italian well-known TV journalist and expert in the Formula One, writes on the many technical aspects of the 2000 racing season giving an in-depth and accurate analysis of all F1 cars in the circus, team by team and race by race. The text is supported by easy-to-read though precise technical sketches, drawn by Giorgio Piola himself, on all mechanical and chassis evolutions which were introduced along the year. Chapters discuss new regulations, cockpit design, tires and brakes, downforce, and the Constructor’s Championship Ferrari F300. Comprehensive tables list race-by-race results for every F1 car, engine and chassis specs, and team personnel.


The publication of a book by Giorgio Piola that analyses the previous Formula One season and unveils the secrets of its cars is, by now, a tradition: 2003 is no exception. From the Ferrari F-2003 GA, which, driven by Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, reconfirmed Maranello as world champions again, to the ever more competitive Williams-BMW – including the FW-18, which will remain a one-off prototype – and McLaren-Mercedes, to Toyota and Minardi. Illustrations – even clearer and more detailed - show the cars and their respective components: underbodies, wings, engines, steering ‘wheels’, they are all examined with unfailing accuracy. In this book, Giorgio Piola has also included an extensive section on the different teams that are gearing up to compete for the 2004 Formula One World Championship, renewing the challenge to Ferrari and its six-times world champion, Michael Schumacher.


The 2007 Formula One season has been one of the hardest fought of recent years, with the renewal of the duel between Ferrari and McLaren. Although without Michael Schumacher, the team from Maranello was able to win the World Constructors’ championship, (even if thanks to Mc Laren’s disqualification) and the Drivers’ title, conquered by Kimi Raikkonen in the last Grand Prix of Brasil. Nevertheless, the true revelation of 2007 resulted from the debut of Lewis Hamilton, McLaren’s young British driver, who established for himself the role of leader. Giorgio Piola analyses the technical evolution of the sport in 2007, revealing the secrets of the leading cars and also looking ahead to the key new developments for 2008. The author looks closely at the various phases of development carried out by all the teams during the season, while the chapter on engines is by Mauro Forghieri and Mauro Coppini.. Those relative to the regulations, tyres, aerodynamics and chassis complete this book, which has now become a literary classic devoted to the fascinating world of Formula One.


The 2008 Formula 1 World Championship saw a repeat of the historic duel between Ferrari and McLaren. The Maranello-based team was led by the in-form Felipe Massa with Lewis Hamilton, his closest rival.It was, of course, Hamilton who took the Drivers’ Championship, with Ferrari settling for the Constructors’ title.The Polish driver Robert Kubica also enjoyed a very productive season that saw him score a maiden Formula 1 win for BMW in the Canadian Grand Prix and finish high up the championship table. Mention also has to be made of the very young Sebastian Vettel, the winner at Monza in the Toro Rosso.Once again the expert Giorgio Piola recounts and, above all, illustrates the secrets and technical advances behind these feats in the 2008-2009 edition of Formula 1. Technical Analysis in which he examines the various development phases conducted by the teams during the championship. The chapter devoted to the engines, written by Mauro Forghieri and Mauro Coppini, and those dealing with the regulations, tyres, aerodynamics, cockpits and chassis complete what has become a “classic” of Formula 1 literature. As always, an extensive section devoted to the leading cars of the 2009 season enhances the book.
