Here is the full, in-depth story of the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.
This classic season saw reigning champions Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing adapt to the challenges of various innovations aimed at improving the racing — DRS, KERS and new Pirelli tyres all played a part — to win the Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships for the second year running.
Each race is described in absorbing detail and supported by stunning colour photography. Drivers, team principals and technical directors throw new light on many of the season's headlines and incidents, presenting an exclusive insight into the on-track action and the race strategy for each round. The contributors include Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Vitaly Petrov, Christian Horner, Adrian Newey, Martin Whitmarsh, Paddy Lowe, Stefano Domenicali and Charlie Whiting.
Clearly presented statistics, supported by colour graphics, provide a unique and comprehensive reference source for the future, covering practice, qualifying and the race itself for each of the 19 Grand Prix weekends.
Superb feature content supports the race coverage. Senior figures from the 12 teams candidly describe the development of their cars, explaining the setbacks as well as the successes. Every driver gives an appraisal of his own season, again with no holds barred. Finally, a 'round table' of Formula One luminaries — Red Bull's Christian Horner, McLaren's Martin Whitmarsh, TV commentator Martin Brundle and ace journalist Mark Hughes — discuss and debate the big trends and topics of the year.
The Official Formula l'm Season Review 2011 is the ultimate record of the season, capturing the drama and atmosphere of each race and providing rare behind-thescenes insight into Formula One.
