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.
