This book is the second in a multi-volume, decade-by-decade series covering the entire history of Formula 1 through its teams and cars. This instalment covers the 1970s, when the sports gained big new sponsors and grew into a television show, with battles between Ferrari and Cosworth-powered opposition to a continuing theme. As well as the great championship-winning teams - Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren and Tyrrell - this was a period when small teams and privateers continued to be involved in significant numbers and they were all included, down to the most obscure and unsuccessful. This book shines new light on many areas of the sport and will be treasured by all Formula 1 enthusiasts.

Year-by-year treatment covers each season in fascinating depth, running through the teams - and their various cars - in order of importance.

World Champions: Lotus and Ferrari, with three drivers 'titles each, were the most dominant race winners through the decade, while Tyrrell and McLaren took two drivers' titles apiece.

Other winning brands were Brabham, BRM, Hesketh, Ligier, March, Penske, Renault, Shadow, Williams and Wolf.

Amon, Connew, Eifelland, Ensign, Hill, Kojima, LEC, Maki, Merzario, Rebaque, Token and Trojan.

Over 600 photos - mostly in color - show every type of car raced by every team and driver, presenting a comprehensive survey of all participants.

The sweep of the decade covers sustained technical development, particularly in aerodynamics, tires and engine turbocharging.

Detailed text includes specifications and technical essentials.
