    1. I can’t believe “Formula One: All The Races” is only 8th!

      1. @kingshark I guess it’s a bit more of a ‘hard-core’ book than most?

      2. It would have been on my list of books to get but for the fact it only lists the top 6 finishers for each race.

        Because of that it means I will only likely buy it if I see it heavily discounted.
