Best Ferrari F1 Books

Like Senna, most collectors should have at least one good Ferrari book in their personal library. I am not a tifosi but like most F1 fans, I do admire Ferrari’s very important history in Formula 1 and am a fan of various drivers that have driven for the Scuderia.

Books on Ferrari grand prix racing can often be a mixed bag, ranging from the very general history books to very technical car books and also the rarer, exclusive photo books. Although its very hard not to put down a  large hardcover Ferrari photo book and many good ones have been published.

Below are my current top Ferrari books :

There are a few other Ferrari books that I thought about that equally deserve to be on this list but these are the ones that I tend to re-read. I will re-review this list sometime in the future as other books are added.
