How much? 'The Bernie' is the biggest and most expensive book to ever be compiled on the history of Formula One. Costing a million dollars the book also includes four all-access passes to every single grand prix for the 2014 season as well as the autographs of every single world champion.

Ecclestone has worked with Opus Media to create a book which weighs 37 kilograms and is packed with 1200 photographs illustrating the history of F1. Zenon Texeira/Opus Media
Encased in a gleaming carbon-fiber case, the 852-page book is already attracting interest from across the world with bids being launched by at least three different corporate groups. Zenon Texeira/Opus Media
The book will be auctioned in Abu Dhabi in December with organizers confident of attracting more bids before the deadline. Zenon Texeira/Opus Media
