Adrian Newey

My top six Formula 1 cars Formula 1’s finest technical brain of its generation – arguably of all time – is retiring from the sport in a few weeks. Adrian Newey, frustrated at the ever-greater restrictions imposed by the technical regulations, is seeking to challenge himself in other areas. Having spurned the opportunity of a mega-bucks move to Ferrari, he will retain a position at Red Bull, his...

Modern times

In politics, you're only as good as your last speech. In motor racing, too, memories are short. Happy the World Champion who chooses just the right moment to retire, while he is still remembered for his glories, and not for the afternoon drives of his career. On 13th October 1996, in the melee of well-wishers, hangers-on and press that clogged the muddled area behind the Suzuka pits after his...

Aussie rules

No-one defined the Australian racing driver better than Jonesy – acerbic wit but also self-deprecating humour, gritty determination and fairness in the heat of battle. He talks to Adam Cooper about his career of surprises "For me, racing was very much a natural progression," says Alan Jones. "I remember Dad used to let me take the odd Monday off school so I could go and watch him race. And as far...

Short, sharp shocker

What Lola Wants, Lola Has Had To Hold On For

Paul Fearnley asks Eric Broadley about his patient wait to enter Formula One on his own terms Formula One is big business. To compete at motorsport's highest level requires a huge financial undertaking.
