Grand Prix Yesterday & Today is a timely celebration of motor racing. Each spread will show a facet of the sport from those pioneering days of more than 100 years ago, juxtaposed with a similar one of recent times. Complementing these expertly chosen images are reflections on the situations then and now. The structure of the book allows current Formula 1 fans to see the technological changes over the years and, paradoxically, how the fundamentals of motor racing have remained largely unaltered. Times may change, but Grand Prix motor racing remains the compelling spectacle that it always has been.
Bruce Jones, a former editor of Autosport magazine, is one of the most respected commentators and reporters on the motor racing scene around the world. As well as the best-selling yearly Formula One Guide, Bruce has written numerous other books, including 60 Years of Formula One, The Treasures of Formula One, and the yearly World Formula One Records. The Foreword is written by Sir Stirling Moss, OBE, generally considered the greatest driver never to have been Formula 1 World Champion. He won 16 races in 66 Grand Prix starts and, despite suffering terrible injuries in 1962, continued racing in various formulae until 2011, when he was past his 80th birthday.
