I’m delighted to announce that we will be publishing the new review of the year: JA on F1 2012 – The Year of Living Dangerously” on December 7th.
But from today you can pre-order your copy by clicking on this link JA on F1 Book
The book is a large format paperback, 248 pages with 8 pages of stunning colour photos by Darren Heath and costs just £10.99. All copies ordered through the JA on F1 website will be signed personally by me and sent out on December 7th.
This is the fourth year we have produced this book and, as it’s a limited edition print run, it usually sells out quickly so pre-ordering is recommended.
As always we’ve listened carefully to reader feedback from last year’s book so, for those of you who have been with me the whole way through this year – or even the last four years – I hope you will find this a cool collectable. We produce one every year so you can build the series. It’s a great way to look back at the key stories which shaped the season.
Featuring a mixture of original posts from the JA on F1 site plus extensive new retrospective content, it offers unique behind the scene insights into the tumultuous 2012 season, which saw eight different race winners and a tense fight for the world drivers’ championship.
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.
With a foreword by outgoing BBC F1 presenter Jake Humphrey this book is a great way to commemorate an unforgettable season.
