Today is the last day that readers in the UK can order the JA on F1 2012 season review – The Year of Living Dangerously in time to get it delivered before Christmas.

So if you are looking for a last minute present for an F1-loving loved-one, this could be the thing for you!

The book is a collection of the best posts from the JA on F1 website from this season, with plenty of new additional content, linking the posts and also adding more insight and a retrospective feel.

Priced just £10-99 plus P&P, the large format paperback book looks in depth at the races which made up the season, the behind the scenes stories and intrigues. This is the fourth year we have produced this book and, as it’s a limited edition print run, we are very close to selling out.

It’s a great way to look back at the key stories which shaped the season.

It’s been a wonderful season of F1 and the JA on F1 2012 book shows the arc of the key stories of the year – a “year of living dangerously” in events both on and off the track.

We chart all the exciting stories of the year: the developments that led Lewis Hamilton to quit McLaren for Mercedes, the crashes involving Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado, the power struggle behind the scenes leading to a new Concorde Agreement, it’s all in here.

There is plenty of thoughtful analysis on all areas of the sport, including the risks of too many pay drivers and the lengths teams will go to, when the going gets tough in a championship battle.

And readers will find plenty of behind the scenes colour on the everyday soap opera of life in F1 from a reliable witness who lives it 24/7.

F1′s leading photographer Darren Heath has supplied the images for the book, including the stunning cover shot and the Foreword is by outgoing BBC F1 presenter Jake Humphrey.

Signed copies are exclusively available here available to order via our online shop now.

    Hey James,

    I was just wondering if my book is on it’s way. I won a copy for being a runner up in the Shell Ultimate Road Trip competition earlier in the year. I know it’s going all the way to Dublin but I want to make sure it’s not forgotten about?

    The delivery people tell me 14-24 days to get to Australia & it was despatched on the 10th. We’ve made it easy for Santa with a big flat roof that he can park his sled on ( along with 4 or so F1 cars- but I think I may have confused him cause I’ve been very naughty & very nice in 2012- hope I get it by Monday

    I received my signed copy today (apparently there was a delay in the local post — not in the UK!). I haven’t yet been able to give it the attention it deserves but it looks very promising!

    A note about size: so many paperbacks we see today are the familiar holiday/travel size… this certainly isn’t and that’s a good thing!

    I got myself the book as my 2012 Xmas present to myself – for being good this year ;-)

    Thanks James. Loving it so far and highly recommend it to every F1 ‘diehard’…unless of course you’re on of the lucky winners of James’ 2012-top-5-drivers competition who, enviably, got a free copy.

    Thank you James. My book arrived here in Melbourne just in time for sitting on the beach on holiday.

    I’m still waiting for my copy for getting the top five drivers in the right order!! surely there weren’t that many of us?


    James Allen Reply:

    The five picked at random from the correct order entries were informed by email and books sent out. There were a dozen or so with the same order, as I recall
