Taking the strain

Until lap 16 of the fifth round of the European F3000 Championship, the German GP support race at Hockenheim, David Coulthard appeared to be heading for an eight-point championship lead.

In Germany, infused with confidence, David was driving,...

OPEN WARFARE

or a series that has been read the last rites more often than Barnet Football Club, the European F3000 Championship has a positively roseate glow to its cheeks. When it kicks off at Silverstone on May 2, there should be at least 26 cars present. And there could be as many as 30. Either way. that means a full grid, and in the current economic climate, that's no mean feat. Particularly so when one...

No such thing as a certainty...

When is a U-turn not, officially, a U-turn? Er, when it's practised by FISA, apparently. A few weeks ago, Formula 3000 was in the midst of a sticky patch, its future uncertain after FISA delivered a potentially lethal one-liner back in December. It's too expensive, said the governing body, so we're going to replace it. After a series of meetings between interested parties, FISA finally hit on the...

Advantage Badoer

The European F3000 Championship is looking more open than it has done for many seasons. Halfway through what should be a 10-race schedule, only nine points separated the top six in the championship, and series leader Luca Badoer, as consistent as he is fleet, has only clocked up 22 points, despite finishing every race to date in the top six. It is quite feasible, if unlikely, therefore, that the...

Breaking the mould?

Success in the European F3000 Championship has, in the past, been excellent news for drivers . . . but a gloomy omen for teams. The statistics are quite astonishing. Since Christian Danner graduated to Grand Prix racing on the strength of his victory in the inaugural championship in 1985, each of his successors has followed suit. As yet, Danner, Ivan CapeIli, Stefano Modena, Roberto Moreno, Jean...
