Library Journal Review

An exuberant foreword by British racer Nigel Mansell opens this slim yet topically expansive update to the 2009 edition. Jones (The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Formula One) subsequently divides the book's content into four segments, offering a picture-rich subject history, driver biographies, builder profiles, and famous course descriptions. Sidebar insets contain annual world-championship results, while detailed time lines present subjects in historical context. Compared to Mark Hughes's Unofficial Complete Encyclopedia of Formula One, this volume merely mentions rather than fully profiles early racers like first British Grand Prix winner Henry Segrave, an exclusion that suggests readers be wary of similar omissions.
