5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Review Sept. 10 2002
By A Customer
I have a number of autocourses and I still feel that they are getting better with every passing year. If you have an interest in Formula 1 then you should have this book. It gives an overview of each team in the championship and really gets a great insight as to how their performances stacked up and what their expectations really were or should have been. The race guides are an indespensible piece of information for the serious fan, although they do occasionally miss outstanding performances from the middle or rear of the field, due to the majority of the focus being on the battle at the front, however most details are covered and in very good detail. The summary of the other racing series (F3000, F3, CART, NASCAR, etc) is a very worthwhile addition as it gives a good reference point without having to purchase other literature. Then there is the top 10 driver lists, they may not always be the rankings you expect, or agree with!, but they certainly are a good talking point, and quite well justified in most cases.
Overall the most complete annual book about Formula 1 and a complete necessity to any real fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Book for any F1 Fan! Jan. 27 2002
Quite simply, Autocourse is the best Formula 1 review there is. I own a complete set of CART Autocourse annuals as well as a nearly complete set of the F1 annuals from 1961 forward. During the race-less down time of the winter, I always look forward to receiving my new copy of Autocourse to review the previous season. These annuals are great for deciding bets among fellow enthusiasts and for filling in gaps in memory from seasons past. No motorsport library is complete without a complete set of these annuals. Period.
My only complaint with recent annuals is that there seems to be somewhat less information than in the past-- but, by no means, is the information lacking or incomplete. The pictures, which have taken some of the space of the writing, are as usual fantastic and worth the price of the book by themselves. Note well that this complaint does not have any effect on my rating of a full five stars. If you have any enthusiasm for the sport, you must get a copy of this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars 51st Edition - Ferrari & Schumacher Again Feb. 3 2002
This is the latest edition of the Autocourse F1 Grand Prix Annual. As usual, it is packed with details of the teams, drivers and the races with many many beautiful pictures of the 2001 F1 Grand Prix Season. It is always enjoyable to read and to recap the excitement of the season. This edition is even more special if you are a Schumacher or Ferrari fan. Shumi won his forth title and has broken several records while the Ferrari F1 Team has made it two in a roll.
Although DVD or VCD on the 2001 Grand Prix Season will be published soon, I still find reading the Autocourse more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book of F1 Jan. 29 2002
By A Customer
This is the book to have but what's the deal with the Amazon editorial reviews. They don't refer to the hardcover edition - they refer to the hardcover edition from several years ago..!
Still, the format is the same every year. If you want a review of the season, this is the book to get.

By T. Townsend - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a must have for all f1 fans. The photographs are great, and the journalism is faultless. I 've recently started to collect autocourse annuals, and the quality of each of them is excellent.My advice is to by this book, and by the Autocourse 2005 book as well.
