The May 2020 Collector’s Edition of Motor Sport celebrates seven decades since the Formula 1 World Championship roared into life with the 1950 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
To commemorate the anniversary, we have assembled motor racing’s finest writers to take you through the heroics, the tragedy and the incredible stories from seventy years of racing.
Each writer has covered a decade in Formula 1’s history, charting the great drivers who stamped their mark on the championship, as well as the political battles, mind-boggling technical advances and key figures who have shaped Formula 1 into the world’s greatest motor racing championship.
Doug Nye begins with the story of the championship’s shaky start in the 1950s, and the story is then taken up by Nigel Roebuck, who charts its growth through the 1960s, then hands over to Maurice Hamilton for the 1970s, followed by Paul Fearnley covering the 1980s.
Simon Arron is your guide to the 1990s and Mark Hughes covers the new millennium. Andrew Benson brings the story up to the present day.
