Formula One enters its 63rd year in 2012, with a packed grid of 24 drivers, 12 passionate teams, and a calendar bursting at the seams with 20 races across the globe. Pitting brand new drivers against returning faces and defending champions against title hunters, the sport will cross five continents in nine gruelling months to discover who is the best of the best. By year’s end we will see a driver and constructor champion crowned, and learn who can handle the pressure and who needs to return to the drawing board.
Red Bull Racing and Sebastian Vettel have dominated the last two years of the sport, winning back-to-back championships and proving that they are the force to be reckoned with. McLaren managed to close the gap towards the end of the year, and, along with Ferrari, won’t be prepared to let Red Bull have it all their own way.
F1 welcomes back the 2007 champion, Kimi Räikkönen whilst two rookies will make their debut. There is new racing on the horizon as the Circuit of the Americas is welcomed to the calendar, plus old favourites Monaco, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps all play host to rounds in the 2012 season.
Covering drivers, teams and each individual round of the calendar, the Pocket F1 Handbook provides a useful guide to the entire season, providing an overview of all the need to know facts.
