Trackside View / Word on the Beat

TRACKSIDE VIEW 'S' CURVES, SUZUKA Red Bull’s RB14 and the art of balance The Red Bull RB14 doesn’t seem to know that Suzuka’s Turn Four is a corner. Pretty much everyone is flat into it these days, but for the other cars there are consequences whereas this one goes through there apparently mass-less, like a cursor on a computer screen. Some other cars cannot quite get back over to the left-handed...

Older is Faster for Ferrari

...and we're not talking about Kimi Räikkönen. Removing a few 'upgrades' has helped to restore the team's early season vim - albeit a little too late RUSSIAN, JAPANESE AND UNITED STATES GP "In the last three races, we had a loss of form, we know that, but we have analysed the situation and hope to have solved the problems. We will have the proof here in Austin.” So said Ferrari’s chief Maurizio...

Ferrari 250/315S

Neil Twyman recounts the quest to reunite prototype bodywork with a suitable chassis in order to preserve a piece of Ferrari history This was a project that I had to make happen. I acquired a set of bodywork originally raced on a Ferrari 315S that we think is a prototype Scaglietti body for the ‘pontoon fender’ 250 Testa Rossa. That makes it incredibly significant. The 315S, raced by Mike...

Still king of the road

It looks a little softer than its forebear, but don't be fooled by appearances When we pass through a golden era, I’ve often wondered just how aware of it we are at the time. When I watched Porsches, Saubers and Jaguars do battle in Group C at the end of the 1980s, did I appreciate exactly what it was that I was seeing? And were those old enough to witness the titanic McLaren vs Ferrari battles...

Scuderia’s succession scramble

The death of Sergio Marchionne has left a void that is being filled by three powerful players, each with their own agenda and support base. The question is: which one will ultimately prevail in the battle for Ferrari's soul? Not many would have bet that Sergio Marchionne could lead Scuderia Ferrari to a fantastic renaissance in the last couple of years, transformed it into a creative tour de...

The world's richest race

The opener for this year’s Goodwood Revival featured perhaps the most valuable grid ever assembled, racing flat out into the sunset GRAND TOTAL: £119.75m* It’s an odd feeling, getting a sort of snow-blindness seeing the entry list. On any other grid something like a Ferrari 250 SWB would stand out like a sore thumb, but when there’s 10 of them, a GTO or two and a swathe of Aston Martins, Jaguars...

Ferrari 512S

DARIO'S VERDICT ON THE FERRARI 512S The Ferrari is dominated by its 5.0-litre V12, which isn’t really a surprise, but the intake is right next to your head. I took my earplugs out initially, because I’d been advised not to wear any, but  it was so painful that I had to come back in to get them. And even then, at full song, it was… [Franchitti’s wince says more than mere words could convey]. It...

The great imitation

On the 30th anniversary of his death we recall how a spurned Enzo Ferrari cleverly conspired to overhaul, and ultimately end, Fiat's Grand Prix dominance and in doing so put himself on the path to greatness Whatever the 1923 Italian term was for, ‘On your bike, son,’ 25-year-old Enzo Ferrari surely uttered it as the carabiniere walked away empty-handed. The officer had arrived at Alfa Romeo’s...

Completing the trifecta

We track down one of the very few drivers who raced the Lola T70, Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 in their heyday Four years separated the Lola T70, the Porsche 917 and the Ferrari 512 in an era when the same motley band of drivers would traipse around the world racing what would become the sport’s most memorable prototypes. Yet finding a driver who raced all three is a tall order. Many drove two out...

Magic numbers

Porsche 917, Ferrari 512, Lola T70 - perhaps as great a concentration of sports car heritage as you could find in a single pit garage. And Motor Sport was at Donington Park to dirve them. Your chauffeur? Dario Franchitti Time’s passage has a habit of altering perceptions. In the warm light of 21st century Leicestershire, the collage of Porsche 917, Ferrari 512S and Lola T70 is arguably the...
