Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1, edited  by Caroline Reid 
Hardcover, © 2012 MacMillan, ISBN 9781781061084

Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1 is certainly unique as far as motorsport books are concerned.

It’s the first ever book of photographs taken entirely by the stars of the sport we love so much.

Every Formula 1 driver and many senior team figures get involved in this great project, being armed with a camera and given the simple directive to snap whatever takes their fancy.

All up, their favourite photograph would be sold at auction, with all proceeds going to the Great Ormond Street Hospital’s children’s charity.

Available as a standard 104-page hardcover or a more limited edition leatherbound version, each ‘photographer’s image is neatly presented, with the snapper providing a brief explanation of the photo.

It’s an interesting insight into each driver, and some really went to the effort of snapping something uniquely personal to them.

All up, it’s a great little book and with the proceeds going to an excellent cause, it’s a worthy investment.

And using the ‘Chequered Flag’ ratings unique to RichardsF1.com, Zoom: Through the eyes of Formula 1 is awarded:
