Description:

The 1980Æs was the watershed year seeing a conflict of visions between the traditional sporting authority and the opportunism of the commercial imperative.



The second of his Retro F1 titles, Mark Hughes puts the 1980s under the microscope from the perspective of today and analyses the season that had it all.



We learn the nuances of ground-effect aerodynamics and how engine power actually multiplied ground effect, as well as discovering that while the downforce produced was no less than it is now, it was 150 times what was being achieved in 1970.



This hard-backed coffee table book is the perfect gift for any fan of Formula 1.
