Now having been published in its third edition, Steve Small’s The Grand Prix Who’s Who is – and there’s really only one way to describe it – an absolute labour of love.
This massive volume – over 600 pages – contains the complete statistical record of every single driver (and every single race in which they competed) to have started a Grand Prix in modern-era Formula 1.
Every driver profile is coupled with carefully researched biographies and supported with black-and-white photographs (totalling over 800), it is a comprehensive resource for any F1 statistics buff or historian.
How on earth Small has managed to put this record together is beyond the scope of my understanding…!
A book like this has the huge potential of being utterly dull and wrapped up in its own sense of importance. I am delighted to say this is not the case with Small’s work, which is easy to read and objectively (yet sympathetically) portrays the back story of each of the drivers it profiles.
If you’re a Formula 1 fan who’s interested in learning about the drivers and their personalities, then this is definitely a great book to have as part of your collection.
