Chapters on the world champions (Farina – 1950, Ascari – 1952/1953, Fangio – 1951/1954/1955/1956/1957, and Hawthorn – 1958), a chapter on the cars used by the world champions (Alfa Romeo Tipo 158 and 159 – 1950/1951, F2 Ferrari – 1952/1953, Maserati 250/F1 – 1954/1957, Mercedes-Benz W196 – 1954/1955, D.50 Ferrari (Lancia) – 1956, Ferrari Dino 246 – 1958), chapters on each of the championship seasons, 1950 to 1958. Lots of racing results too with a foreword by Mike Hawthorn, just a month before his untimely death.
