The reference book on Grand Prix racing in France, the year F1 returns to the legendaryPaul Ricard circuit, with forewords by Alain Prost and Jean Todt, President of the FIA. French industrialists were the world’s leading producers of cars at the end of the 19th century and invented car racing as a way of promoting their know-how. This is how the term Grand Prix was born, which today designates a large number of sportingcompetitions throughout the world. The authors tell the story of this epic, which saw races leave the roads to reach the circuits and then be organized as world championships, withFrance always pulling its weight through its circuits, its drivers and of course its cars, untilthe mid-1990s. After nearly twenty years of disuse, the French Grand Prix returns in 2018 at Le Castellet on a completely renovated Paul Ricard circuit. This book details all the key moments of this return to grace of F1 in France.



A beautifully illustrated book that explains the technical and technological achievements that have marked F1 since the early 20th century… A reference book where statistics shed a new light on spectacular races!
