Team Lotus In Formula 1 Team Lotus In Formula 1
Author Hartmut Lehbrink and photographer Rainer Schlegelmilch were close to Lotus from its earliest days in Formula One in the late 1950s. Over the next two decades they were on hand as the team captured seven championships with such legendary drivers as Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, and Mario Andretti. Team Lotus in Formula One draws upon vintage interviews with founder Colin Chapman and his drivers, engineers, and crew, as well the latest input from the re-born team led by Tony Fernandes. Along with hundreds of spectacular images from the track and behind the scenes, the book includes two CDs featuring high-resolution images, video, and podcasts. read more >
