F1 Pocket Companion 2012: The Ultimate Formula 1 Guide (Review)
When I received my copy of the F1 Pocket Companion 2012 I must admit that my initial reaction was “wow, it’s definitely pocket sized, bet there’s not much detail in that” but, on looking further, this was one of those occasions when it was definitely wrong to judge a book by its cover… not that there’s anything wrong with the cover, I hasten to add!
Pocket sized it may be but don’t be put off by its size, there’s a wealth of material on each of its 140 pages. With detailed statistics on every aspect of Formula One it’s a book you’ll make use of time and time again, from circuit guides to extensive profiles of every team and driver – it’s all here and beautifully illustrated to boot.
What surprised me most was the attention to detail; there are loads of lovely little touches like the Facebook and Twitter profiles of anyone you’ll want to follow, details of the relevant technical regulations, “what colour rim does the super-soft tyre have?”. You’ll find that and much, much more within its pages.
