Featuring evocative full-colour photographs throughout, this book depicts one of the most exciting decades in the history of Formula 1. Also containing team, driver and results listings for each year, this beautiful and nostalgic book is enriched, as always, by the author’s meticulous picture research and well-observed commentary. Formula 1 in the 1960s was the story of British promise fulfilled. Here, in this captivating all-colour book, is a detailed photographic portrait of the decade using rare images from a period that was largely seen in black and white through newspapers, magazines and books. It was a truly heroic and savage era, often conducted over unprotected roads in fragile machines at the mercy of fate. English-speaking drivers reigned supreme through this period, winning all ten drivers’ titles. Jack Brabham, Phil Hill, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, John Surtees, Denny Hulme and Jackie Stewart were the World Champions, but other significant drivers within the British, Commonwealth and American elite were Stirling Moss, Bruce McLaren, Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti.
