Autocourse is the definitive Formula One and motorsport annual, printed on high quality gloss art paper, 240mm x 320 hardback cover with over 400 pages of superlative images from the World's leading Grand Prix photographers and editorial from the sport's most respected journalists.

This year's championship has been dominated by Red Bull Racing, and in particular Max Verstappen who clinched the 2023 Drivers F1 World Championship as well as the team clinching the F1 Constructors title a few races earlier in the season.

Authors Tony Dodgins and Maurice Hamilton, combining 80 years of F1 expertise, examine each Grand Prix in depth. Full race reports are backed by detailed results, including lap charts and tyre strategies.

Motor racing’s other major categories are also fully covered: WEC and Le Mans sports car successes; the closely-fought Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships, featuring emerging young talent from around all continents of the world; and the tightly fought Formula E series for electric powered single seaters.

Whether you are a new or longtime Formula 1 fan, here is your ultimate, unofficial armchair companion to the popular Netflix series Formula 1: Drive to Survive, providing deeper insight into the players, tech, and history that drive the show’s plot points.
