Full power, brittle calendar... After knocking on the door for five years, Will Power (above) has at last won the IndyCar title. The Australian looked a likely champion in 2010, ’11 and ’12, only to throw away his chances in the closing stages. This year, his fifth with Team Penske, Power made as heavy work of the job as anyone in motor racing history, eking out his first IndyCar title by...

Lunch with... Alex Wurz

Tall men are not meant to make top racing drivers, yet he had a busy 12-year career as F1 racer and tester. Now his heart is set on a third Le Mans winBy Simon Taylor Alex Wurz looks like Hollywood’s idea of a racing driver: alert, clear-eyed, charming yet steely, wiry and very fit. And tall. But, as we know, in real life the most successful racing drivers tend to be little guys. It’s not just...

This month on the Motor Sport website

Nigel's Q&A Nigel Roebuck has stirred things up on the website this month in his Q&A column after Pat Kenny asked whether it would leave a bad taste if Alonso were to win the 2010 F1 title following the team orders drama at Hockenheim. “I grow rather weary of the anti-Alonso sentiment which seems rife in this country,” wrote Nigel. “What I find staggering is that for countless years...

Warring team-mates, matters acoustic, Senna and Ferrari When Jochen Rindt’s Lotus crashed massively at Montjuich in 1969, he was extraordinarily fortunate to escape with relatively light injuries. This was the time of the ludicrous ‘tall’ wings, and the flimsy supports on Rindt’s car simply collapsed, as they had – a few minutes earlier, at the same spot – on the sister car of Graham Hill, the...

Dario back to what he does best

Dario Franchitti returns to the IRL next year as Scott Dixon’s team-mate in Chip Ganassi’s squad. Franchitti left the IRL at the end of 2007 to try NASCAR with Ganassi (above), but he struggled and Chip couldn’t sell any serious sponsorship on his car. In fact, Ganassi is having a tough time keeping his NASCAR sponsors, with long-time backer Texaco terminating its support of Juan Pablo Montoya at...

On the silliness of knee-jerk rule changes that fix non-existent problems, a Brawn-free future for Mercedes and Juan Pablo Montoya’s return to the single-seater mainstream As the Formula 1 Strategy Group – comprising six members from the FIA, six from the Formula One Group and six from the teams (Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes, Lotus, Williams) – was announced, plenty of people, notably...

Simon Taylor As far as victory was concerned, the German Grand Prix was finished at the first corner. It was always going to be won by one of three Michelin-shod cars: but two of them, Ralf Schumacher's Williams and Kimi Raikkonen's McLaren, were eliminated at the start. This left Juan Pablo Montoya with a straightforward job to do, and he did it to perfection. Helped by the new scoring system,...

Thoroughbreds cause a stir at British GP

The Silverstone Thoroughbred Grand Prix car race during the British Grand Prix weekend in July drew interest from several senior members of the current grand prix paddock. "This is great. I haven't seen some of these cars for so long," said McLaren's team co-ordinator Jo Ramirez as he stood in the TGP pitlane on Saturday afternoon. "All these cars are driven hard. I remember the Williams FW07...

Simon Taylor Things are looking up for Formula One. After last year's worries about falling TV ratings and dwindling column inches, we've had two stories that were heaven-sent for the tabloids, and just right for getting the Sunday afternoon couch potatoes to switch over from the Eastenders omnibus. First, the world champion's car bursts into flames during a refuelling stop. Our superhero sees...
