One of the hardest fought Formula 1 World Championships of recent years ended in Brazil, where Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull won the drivers’ and constructors’ world titles respectively for the third consecutive year. Ferrari, competitive until mid-season, had to be content with Fernando Alonso’s second place in the end. On the technical front, the 2012 world championship will be remembered for the large air intakes in the noses of many of the cars, their purpose to recover aerodynamic load; then there were the sophisticated F-Ducts created by Mercedes-Benz and the pull rod front suspension layout designed by Ferrari. In this well-established publication, author, designer and television commentator Giorgio Piola analyses the various development phases of the different teams during the world championship. Brief but exhaustive texts illustrated with hundreds of technical designed in full colour are the main elements of this book, which concludes with a section on the cars that will be the protagonists of the 2013 season.

For the fourth consecutive year, Sebastian Vettel has won the Formula 1 World Championship for drivers. He did so with 13 victories out of the season’s 19 races, from the Grand Prix of Belgium to the Brazilian GP. Only Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton were able to get the better of the great German champion with their sporadic wins. And Vettel’s string of successes also enabled Red Bull to confirm once again it is still the top constructor. On the technical front, the 2013 world championship acquired a certain stability, even if there was no lack of new elements, like the abolition of the cars’ nose step, the elimination of the double DRS and Ferrari’s adoption of faired half-axels by. All aspects carefully explained by Giorgio Piola in his latest book in the “Technical Analysis” series, which is now a must-have for all enthusiasts. This edition also includes over 400 colour illustrations, which unveil all the secrets of the cars that battled for the 2013 world title; and then there is an early look ahead to the principal changes of 2014, when the cars go back to being powered by a turbocharged engines of 6-cylinders and 1600 cc. instead of the classic normally aspirated V8.

    Radical changes in terms of technology and regulations marked the 2014 season, with the cars being equipped with 1600 cc, six-cylinder turbocharged engines with dual internal combustion and electrical power delivery (the so-called Power Unit) in place of the classic naturally aspirated V8s. Electronically controlled rear braking and a series of aerodynamic restrictions were also introduced, the latter having a major influence on the external appearance of the cars which were very different to their predecessors. These changes and innovations also had significant sporting repercussions with the Mercedes of Rosberg and Hamilton undisputed protagonists of the World Championship, the surprising Daniel Ricciardo doing better than his teammate Vettel and the Maranello team featuring in another grey season with Fernando Alonso already heading towards McLaren. Revealing the technical secrets of the 2014 cars and providing a broad preview of the season to come is as ever Giorgio Piola who, drawing by drawing, illustrates and describes in the most minute detail the entire World Championship field.

    As with previous years, 2015 was one in which Mercedes-Benz dominated both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships. The German manufacturer confirmed the technical advantage it had derived from the introduction of the revolutionary power unit, which first appeared in 2014. In place of Red Bull, which fell into disgrace after a media conflict with engine supplier Renault, it was Ferrari that attempted to stand up to the Silver Arrows. Side issues were the stories of a Williams wanting to come back and battle for the title; McLaren with a new but not very effective Honda engine, which touched the lowest point in the Japanese manufacturer’s long history in F1; and the other leading teams of a season that ended with the official announcement of Renault’s return, having acquired Lotus. Offering a precise analysis of this latest F1 championship, especially from the technical point of view, there is once again Giorgio Piola. Hundreds of all-colour illustrations document the development of the various cars throughout the Formula 1 World Championship, and offer – as always – a wealth of information anticipating the 2016 season
