This deck of card is similar to the one in the previous entry, only slightly rarer (to my knowledge, Bielefelder is in general rarer than Piatnik) and also slightly older. Of course it focuses on F1 drivers, but also include other categories as well.

As a matter of fact, it includes two extra cards with the technical specifications of Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 an Formula V, apart of one card with the instructions and the cover card.
Unlike the most common quartets with cars, here we have pictures of the pilots in their pilot outfits, most of them taken directly in the cars, circuits and the paddocks. There are a few of these pilot quartets, but they are not very numerous. I guess the cars are more attractive for children, and this quartet is more for hard-core fanatics.

Note the interesting selection of drivers, many of which are today great F1 legends. The current champion was Emerson Fittipaldi with Lotus-Ford and the following year Jackie Stewart won also with Lotus-Ford.
