Formula One 2020 by Bruce Jones

I thought today will be different, as I wanted to share my review for Formula One 2020 by Bruce Jones* on the same day as the new F1 season starts. When I started reading this book, I did not imagine the first few races will be cancelled. So, if now you are missing F1, this book might be just the thing you need right now. I liked the book a lot and my husband read it too and he said he is giving it 5 stars as well.

The Formula One 2020 by Bruce Jones book is a good resource if you want to follow the F1 season. Each team has two pages with a bit of its history and how many points their drivers got in 2019. After each team, the two drivers that race for that specific team are presented. It is a short, 1-page, presentation, but very interesting, as it looks at their career before F1 too. If you are watching Formula E it should be very interesting, as some of the drivers mentioned in those presentations are now racing in the all-electric formula.

Next are the tracks, a map of each circuit, with the name of the corners and relevant statistics. It is very interesting to see them and I will look again at those, before each race. Furthermore, there is a review of the 2019 season with race-by-race reports and statistics, highlights. I will read those before the race too, to remind myself of what happened in the previous year.

I just hope the pandemic will be dealt with soon and that the new F1 season will start.

  • I’m thinking F1 much be more popular in Europe than over here. You’re not my only blogging friend from the UK that loves it. I know NASCAR is popular here, but even that fails to interest me. As far as something circling a track, my husband enjoys horse racing.

    • You are right, F1 is popular in Europe, where it has a very long history. I’m not keen on NASCAR, despite loving motorsports. I think you’d enjoy Formula E though (all electric). Give it a try, when it comes back, as this too is suspended due to coronavirus, it’s only 45 min+1 lap, that means less than 50 minutes in total. You might discover that is very interesting and exciting.
