Grand Prix Yesterday & Today is a timely celebration of motor racing. Each spread will show a facet of the sport from those pioneering days of more than 100 years ago juxtaposed with a similar one of recent times. Complementing these expertly chosen images are reflections on the situations then and now. The structure of the book allows today's Formula 1 fan to see just how much things have technically changed over the years but, paradoxically, how many of the fundamentals of motor racing have remained unaltered. Times may change, but Grand Prix motor racing remains the compelling spectacle that it always was.
