The images are the work of famous photographers from Motorsport images, mainly Rainer Schlegelmilch, Ercole Colombo, Michael and Steven Tee as well as Mark Sutton.

“I think the most appropriate word is ‘intensity’,” writes Domenicali. “It is the key ingredient of Formula 1, but also of life. You will find it in each of the photographs presented to you … a journey through Motorsport images‘collection of photographs, a unique’ archive archive ‘. It includes the work of many prestigious and invaluable photojournalists. “

The book, which was curated by Colombo and famous Italian journalist Giorgio Terruzzi, features many well-known images. The cover is Andy Hone’s award-winning photo of Romain Grosjean’s miracle escape after his fireball accident in Bahrain. Ayrton Senna’s iconic Schlegelmich photo in a pensive mood and Colombo’s image of Gilles Villeneuve’s blood slip in the Ferrari are among other highlights. Many images are unique; Steven Tee’s photo of the collision between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost at Suzuka in 1989, for example.

The book tells the story of F1 and its heroic drivers in a series of chapters spanning each of the eight decades. Black and white images from the 1950s and early 1960s show the simplicity of cars and racetracks. They give way to the color of the late 1960s and 1970s, the most glamorous but also the most dangerous period of Formula 1, where many lives were lost. The golden age of Senna, Prost, Mansell, Lauda and Piquet in the 1980s leads to the Michael Schumacher years in the 1990s and 2000s and from there to Hamilton and the heroes of today.

Photography has always been a part of F1 storytelling throughout its 70 years and as TV coverage becomes more fragmented and the importance of social media increases, the importance of high quality images also increases. .

Some of the images from the book were also on display in September to coincide with the Italian Grand Prix weekend in Monza, during an exhibit at the nearby Villa Reale, which drew thousands of Grand Prix fans, as well. only inhabitants.
