The city has changed greatly since that time, but its people are much the same. Some are rich, some are poor, some are happy, some are sad, some have found love, some are looking for love. O.

“Formula One” by Alex Raynham – It’s an exciting life – full of fast cars, money, and travel. The names of Formula One champions are known all over the world. And everywhere young drivers dream of success one day in Monaco, Melbourne, Monza… But it is a difficult life too. Drivers need strong bodies – and minds.

This is the dangerous, exciting world of Formula One – where the world’s best drivers have only seconds to win or lose a race.
