Formula One Circuits from above with Google Earth gives the reader the perfect insight into what makes F1 the most exciting and dramatic of all forms of motorsport. The unique photography provided by Google Earth show each circuit's challenges and why only the very best drivers in the world can thrive in Formula One. Television cameras (even High Definition and 3D) flatten and foreshorten racetracks making them, if not featureless, then apparently undemanding.
