Talk about a revolution

The future of Formula 1 has never been more uncertain. Here, Motor Sport presents its vision of how Grand Prix racing can be reborn. It’s radical – but echoes of the past are clear Greed has damaged Formula 1, turned it from a vibrant, vivid, alive, unsettled and exciting environment, where anything might happen, into a predictable, codified template of commercial success, where everything is...

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...

Reflections in an icy blast

There were several winds blowing across the Jarama Autodrome, some of them winds of change, some were winds of discontent and some were mingled with an air of apprehension. The all-pervading wind was the one coming from the snow-covered mountains to the north of the circuit. Situated as it is in a once arid plain, but now growing houses at an alarming rate, there is nothing to break the wind as...

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...

Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

Letters

Letter of the month War of words War of words Having just read Nigel Roebuck’s chat with Niki Lauda about drivers’ freedom to voice their opinions, I find it interesting that the blame is laid at the feet of the teams. I would say that before a team could give a driver carte blanche to speak to the media, we would need a media that could be trusted to act responsibly – and sadly I don’t see that...

Nigel Roebuck

The Ecclestone saga, modern F1’s banality, Foyt at Brands Hatch When the announcement was made that Bernie Ecclestone was indeed to face bribery charges in the German court, it’s fair to say that in the paddock there was a measure of surprise, for, Bernie being Bernie, the widespread assumption had been that it wouldn’t come to that, that he would manage to sidestep this potential threat to his...

The man who played with fire

Hockenheim brought the spectre of fire back to Grand Prix racing. In his first interview for almost two decades, former BRM chief Louis Stanley, who pioneered means of eliminating such risk, recalls the days when safety was a dirty word In his heyday on the Grand Prix circuits Louis T Stanley cut an imposing figure. Tall and corpulent, ruddy of face and silver of hair, his blue blazer and old...

Lunch with... Perry McCarthy

Formula Ford champion, F3 front-runner, Grand Prix non-qualifier, pioneering Stig, works Audi driver and perennial optimist... Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer James Mitchell The road to Formula 1 is steep and stony. For every rookie who takes his place on a Grand Prix grid there’s a long queue of hopefuls who never get there. Among the ones who come closest, talent – pure talent – may not be...

22 into 16 won't go...

Spanish GP, Jarama, 1970People accuse F1 of being too political in the modern era, but distasteful spats are by no means a fresh inventionWriter Simon Arron, illustrator Guy Allen The 1969 Spanish Grand Prix had been laced with controversy – Team Lotus’s collapsing wing pillars triggering a couple of massive accidents and, subsequently, a regulatory rethink. One year on, Formula 1 was flirting...
