It recounts the history of Americans in the Formula 1 World Championship, and offers a detailed review of the drivers, teams, constructors and tracks involved.

Whether on a coffee table or prized amongst a bookshelf, this historical collector's piece will make the perfect statement for any Formula 1 aficionado. Mario Andretti introduces the book and reminds readers of the bridge that exists between America and Europe, as well as its importance to his own career.
- Author BiographyPhillip van Osten developed a passion for racing growing up with the sights and sounds of fast cars. His father, Dick van Osten, was an editor and writer for Auto Speed and Sport and Motor and moved the family to Europe to immerse them in the world of Grand Prix racing. Phillip van Osten was an early contributor to the monthly French 1i Magazine, often providing a historic or business perspective on Formula 1's affairs. In 2012, he co-authored along with fellow journalist Pierre Van Vliet the English-language adaptation of a limited edition book devoted to the great Belgian driver Jacky Icks. Phillip is also a commentator for Belgian broadcaster Be. TV for the US Indycar series. Bernard Cahier was motor racing's first true photo-journalist. Leaving France after World War II, Cahier studied at UCLA and took a job at Roger Barlow's foreign car dealership in Los Angeles. He returned to Europe in 1952 and became an eminent figure in Grand Prix paddocks for over thirty years. Through his American connections, he acted as a public relations consultant for Goodyear. Bernard Cahier also founded and was the President of the International Racing Press Association. Paul-Henri Cahier is the son of Bernard Cahier. Following in his father's footsteps, he became a notable photographer in his own right. He has followed Formula 1 for thirty years and his outstanding work is published in countries all over the world.
