Featuring portraits taken by Bernard Cahier and his son, Paul-Henri Cahier, two of the most respected Formula 1 photojournalists in the sport's history, this collection serves as a visual history of F1. The 26 drivers whose visages grace the pages of this book are a who's-who of racing royalty, from Nino Farina--F1's first world champion in 1930--and legends such as Emerson Fittipaldi, Graham Hill, and Niki Lauda to more recent and active stars such as Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton. This book is required reading and viewing for serious Formula 1 fans.
Bernard Cahier was the most well-known Formula 1 photojournalist. He was one of the founders of the International Racing Press Association, which formalized and organized media coverage of the sport. His photography has been used in many photo essays, including "Bernard Cahier: F-Stops, Pit Stops, Laughter and Tears" and "Formula 1: 1950 Today." Paul-Henri Cahier is the son of Bernard Cahier and a Formula 1 photojournalist. He is a coauthor of "Formula 1 2004: Photographic Season Review." Xavier Chimits is a sports specialist and the author of various books on Formula 1, including "Formula 1 Motor Racing Book" and "Schumacher, la legende.""
