Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the exhilarating history of Formula One 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1958 to 2018

Revisit the greatest Grand Prix races in history through newspaper clippings in this personalised Formula One book, now updated with Lewis Hamilton’s 2018 Championship at Grand Prix in Mexico. With coverage beginning in 1958, the year Mike Hawthorn became the first ever World Drivers’ Champion, this timeless F1 gift takes you through decades of Formula One history, revisiting all the key moments from Monza, Montreal, Monte Carlo and more, right up until 2018.

Beginning in 1950, the early years of Formula One belonged to drivers from Italy and Argentina in the Italian vehicles of Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Ferrari. That was until Mike Hawthorn’s 1958 championship ushered in a period of British and Australian dominance, with Jack Brabham, Jim Clark and Graham Hill all winning multiple titles during the next decade. The 1970s brought Jackie Stewart and the Austrian Niki Lauda, who won three championships apiece, before a spell of French and Brazilian success, courtesy of Alain Prost, Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna, who won ten championships between them from 1981 to 1993, before the latter tragically lost his life in a crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Around the turn of the century, Michael Schumacher became the most successful driver of all time by winning seven Driver’s Championships, including five-in-a-row from 2000 to 2004 while racing for Ferrari. His fellow countryman Sebastian Vettel almost matched the feat a few years later, capturing four straight, but was denied a fifth by Lewis Hamilton, his second of four championships to date.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Joyous306 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This was my first purchase from this company and I was extremely impressed with the level of service. The item I had ordered was not available as I had ordered it, the company automatically up graded the item to a better quality product at no extra charge. The lady I spoke to on the phone could not have been more helpful, friendly or professional I would recommend and order again from them.

The leather cover looks good quality .But was disappointed with the inside pages .The print is not great and some of the pages look quite blurred . Considering the cost of this gift I feel a bit let down.

Easy to order

Easy to order , fast delivery and a great product. It is smaller than the real Haynes Manual, but it's not a Haynes and if you read it ,it DOES tell you this

Excellent product.

I ordered a West Ham United history through the years book, as a gift for a fanatic Hammers fan. There was a problem with the first book that was sent to me. After a couple of emails with Emma @ in the book, the problem was solved to my full satisfaction. Anyone looking for a top gift to buy any fan, look no further than this company. Great value.

Sent to Granddaughter over 500 miles away, have not seen the book, so not really sure how to rate the book since I've not seen it and won't see it for several more months, she is 5 years old and said she liked it and that's all I can say to date.
