But wait. The beauty of this book does not stop there. The truth is, I was reluctant at first to buy the book because the word "Mythical" in its title led me to suspect it might only be another repository of the usual popular and famous cars like Lauda's Ferrari 312 T2 or Senna's Lotus 99T. Illustrations of these cars abound everywhere. While this book does these cars justice, it lunges for the trophy by including less known and downright obscure (but still historically interesting) cars. Take the Rebaque HR100, Brett Lunger's McLaren M23 and Lella Lombardi's March 751 as but three examples.
Lastly, this book makes for a good read. Correa projects himself not only as a talented artist and knowledgeable F1 aficionado, but a witty one as well. History is not just retold, technical specifications are not just spewed out. They are presented in interesting context that lead one to see them in a new light. Chew on these subtitles to whet your appetite: The Weaker Sex? (Divina Galica), Arrogant Noses (Tyrell 019), and Long Live the Depression (Lotus 79).
I am not claiming to have read hundreds of F1 books and will not compare this one with any. What I will claim is I enjoy this book and will proudly show it to my fellow collectors. Too bad it is not an autographed edition.
I respect the author for trying to put this together, and I certainly don't intend to return it, but the art wasn't good enough to make it a coffee-table book, and the text wasn't good enough to make it a historical reference.
Do you want to add a little bit of legendary bravery and passion to every single detail related to the Formula 1 history?
Are you trying to experience how this class of formula has evolved in the last forty years?
If you answer yes to any of the previous questions, this is your book to order right away. And more. This is not just a book but a trip into the most interesting curiosities for a challenging technology that defies times and memories. You will find here an author that really lives on details and accuracy. The same substance that feeds actually the Formula 1 that we follow and we love.
You will learn and you will enjoy a time travel across most of the things building up the state of the art for the fastest road course racing cars. If you love to follow up F1 seasons this book it is a must. If you love cars... with this book will going to move you to a maximum of 15,000 RPM experiencing a lot of lateral acceleration. This simply masterwork is about speed and elegance. And a lot of passion too.
Great job Mr. Correa. Great job!
