Structured around three sections: Drivers and Rivalries, Teams and Cars, and Tragedy and Triumph of the Circuits, The Pursuit of Speed captures the intensity and beauty of the sport.

The adrenaline-fueled, high-octane world of Formula One has created some of the greatest moments in sporting history. From the intense rivalries between teams and drivers, such as Alain Prost and Arton Senns and 2015's Rosberg and Hamilton, to the infamous tracks that have created moments of tragedy and triumph -- F1's greatest moments read like a film script.

The Cahier Archive has captured the drama from the 1950's to the present day including Lewis Hamilton's 2015 winning season. It is fulled with stunning behind-the-scenes shots, from pit stops to personal moments, beautiful portraits of the drivers and atmospheric shots of the racing in action. Each section is introduced with vivid essays by F1 correspondent Maurice Hamilton, and filled with the Cahier's beautiful and resonating photographs, many unpublished giving a behind-the-scenes look at the world of F1.

About the Author

The Cahier Archive is the only photo collection covering the history of the Formula One Championship to have remained in the hands of its original authors. Bernard Cahier and his son Paul-Henri give the collection two very different styles. Bernard was a reporter, with the gift to make people truly live events through his pictures. Paul- Henri has always leaned towards an artistic approach of photography.

A veteran journalist in the paddock, Maurice Hamilton has been part of the Formula One scene since 1977 and was the Observer's motor racing correspondent for 20 years. He has written several books as well as commentating on Formula One for BBC Radio 5 Live.
