Precision

Timing is everything Split-second accuracy is fundamental to both motor sport and the finely honed world of watchmaking, so it’s hardly surprising that the two are highly complementary. For many years now, watch companies have selected racing drivers as brand ambassadors. Famously, Jackie Stewart had his shirts’ left cuff tailored to make sure his Rolex was suitably visible at appropriate moments...

On the road with... Simon Arron

Readers' letters

Letter of the month Jack the gentleman I had the humbling experience of Jack Brabham’s no-nonsense approach to racing car preparation; it was a wake-up call at the time. In 1988 I was involved with Derek Bell Racing, running his son Justin in Vauxhall-Lotus. Via our Camel sponsorship we also took on David Brabham from Australian Formula Ford.

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...

Decoding the enigma

Lewis Hamilton divides opinion like no other current Formula 1 driver. Somewhere between the deifying and the vitriol lies the truth behind this monumental – yet flawed – talent of the tracks Lewis Hamilton is the most exciting performer on the Formula 1 grid. He’s also, without any question, the most divisive. Drama and controversy stalk him. For every fan that is excited by the audacious moves...

Mark Hughes

On and off the circuit, F1 continues to confound. Bernie Ecclestone’s Munich court case for alleged bribery of the German banker Gerhard Gribkowsky has been concluded by a payment from Ecclestone of $100 million to the German authorities. This type of settlement, a peculiarity of the German legal system, implies neither guilt nor innocence and has been applied reportedly because the prosecution...
