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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages 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.

Love the book

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.

I bought this book for my partner who adores the Formula 1 and he absolutely loved it! It arrived within a matter of days and in perfect condition. It is of the highest quality and the book itself is beautifully presented. A wonderful gift for any Formula 1 Fan. Highly recommend.

We bought the personalised Formula 1 book for our friends 60th birthday - he is going to love it as he is an F1 freak !! Very pleased with the personalisation, making it that little bit more special for him.

Crawford Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 August

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.

ValiantBrian Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Lovely gift for a milestone birthday

Lovely gift for a milestone birthday, and beautifully packaged. The only improvement i can think of would be to be able to choose a newspaper from the area of your choice ie, the area you were born in. Nottingham has no relevance to my family. That said, still a lovely gift.

Australian Customer

I am from Australia. There is no tracking number provided once the book has been dispatched. The book arrived 3 days after the estimated time frame however, it was still in time for the event where the book was to be given as a gift. When I called In The Book, I was advised that it can take upto 26 business days to arrive. The service was acceptable.

Book itself is great but is only suitable for white little boys which seems unfair. all well and good personalising the name but if your child is of a different race or gender to the illustration, the book is pointless. Feels like this needs to be made clearer on the website. Customer services not very understanding and slow at responding.

I ordered a newspaper for my Dad’s 80th birthday - he was born on 7th January 1940. When he opened the paper it was 8th January and also a Glasgow Herald which would be great for someone who lived in this area but not for someone who doesn’t. I emailed the day after his birthday 8th January to enquire why this was and apart from an automatic reply to say I would be contacted, have heard nothing. Needless to say I am disappointed with the customer service I have received.
