...what happened since last year's edition? I know the F1 Magazine had a face-lift that gave it a more professional look and feel, but in my opinion it should not have affected the book.
Last year's edition finally proved that official F1 annual is here to blow the Autocourse version out of the water with very thorough descriptions of the teams/drivers and lap by lap accounts of races from the overal and team perspectives...
While the book covers all of the "full-time" drivers (incl. N. Kiesa), missing profiles on both Baugartner and M.Gene who subbed for ailing Jordan and Williams drivers respectively. Also gone are lenghty race description instead replaced by hightlights.
To make a long story short, this format would be great for an end of year review magazine, NOT a hardcover book that costs $40.
However, the photography and layout are nothing short of beautiful.
