The British Grand Prix

A very popular win Silverstone, July 18th Enormous is the only way to describe the size of the organisation behind this year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone, backed by Marlboro and with the support of just about every racing enthusiast in the country, all master-minded by the RAC Motor Sports Association. The pits and paddock became a veritable young town, with motor homes, tents, marquees...

The French Grand Prix

Inconclusive Dijon-Prenois, July 5th The most important aspect of the 1981 French Grand Prix was that it saw the return of the Goodyear Tyre Company to Formula One. It will be recalled that they withdrew entirely last winter during the fracas between Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors and officialdom. Thanks to the support of Michelin, who agreed to supply everyone with tyres...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

Lunch with... Alastair Caldwell

He rose from cleaner to team manager at McLaren, walked out on Bernie Ecclestone and then found a way to fund a passion for fine cars Writer: Simon Taylor | Photographer: James Mitchell Spending a day or even an hour with Alastair Caldwell, listening to his fund of stories about Formula 1 from the inside 40 or more years ago, is an unforgettable experience.

Reflections with Nigel Roebuck

The Bianchi accident, Montjuich Park 1975, Vettel and Alonso In the hours following Jules Bianchi’s accident, several moments and conversations came back to me, one of them with Martin Brundle at Suzuka in 1995, in which he recalled the Japanese Grand Prix a year earlier. In appalling conditions – worse even than those at this year’s race – Brundle’s McLaren flew off the road at the Dunlop Curve...

2014 Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort

Circuit Park Zandvoort’s third Historic Grand Prix event, on August 29-31, attracted a record 50,000 spectators and featured not only the cream of Europe’s racing championships but also competitors from as far afield as Australia, the USA and Dubai.

Lunch with... Kenny Bräck

He reached Formula 3, stepped back to Renault Clios and then went on to conquer Indianapolis... via an argument or two with Tom Walkinshaw Writer: Simon Taylor, Photographer: James Mitchell Every sportsman tends to be remembered, above all, for one particular achievement: one win, one record, one defining moment in his career. Kenny Bräck feels that most people primarily recall his victory in the...

Notes on the cars at Watkins Glen

The 31 cars in the superb Kendall Tech Centre at Watkins Glen included all 30 that had been resident at Mosport Park plus the Surtees TS14. Since Monza some work had been done to improve the fuel system and the brakes, and although Surtees did most of practice in it and Hailwoed tried it briefly, it was finally raced by Schenken who was making his last appearance for the team. All the T cars, at...
