We are delighted to launch the new book “JA on F1 2013 – Winning at all costs”, which is published today.
The book is a large format paperback, 240 pages, with stunning color images from Darren Heath and a Foreword from David Coulthard. The book priced at £10.99. All books ordered through this site are signed by me.
I’ve been in the offices of our e-commerce partners Grand Prix Legends, signing the books and they look great. But it is a limited edition collectable and many have already been pre-ordered so if you fancy one for your Christmas stocking you’d better move quickly. The book has sold out in each of the previous four years.
It tells the behind the scenes stories of the 2013 F1 season, with original posts from this award winning website as well as retrospective text I have written since the season ended.
This is the fifth year we have published the JA on F1 Yearbook. When you sit down to put together a book like this and comb through all the stories of the year you are always struck by how much happens in a typical F1 season.
So much change that takes place of people and circumstances, unforeseen developments and outside influences are brought to bear on the sport. And of course there are always winners and losers. This is one of the most fascinating and compelling aspects of F1, which is both a business and a sport.
The 2013 season was no exception; Sebastian Vettel became a four-time world champion, Ferrari dropped the ball again and started in-fighting, Mercedes came good, Williams struggled among the backmarkers, Kimi Raikkonen walked out of Lotus because he hadn’t been paid, McLaren fired a driver after a single season, Bernie Ecclestone was in court as a string of legal actions stretched out before him, Pirelli suffered six spectacular tyre failures at the British Grand Prix, the list goes on. How many of these happenings could have been predicted before the first race in Melbourne?
That is the whole point of the JA on F1 Yearbook, to look back on the amazing turns of events, make sure that they are chronicled and give them some historical context.
