Flat race

Today, Formula 1 teams expect two years' warning of technical rule changes. Thirty years ago, they got four months. Cue panic - then a prime example of pure inspirationwriter Paul Fearnley All stop! The bombshell that sucked the air from beneath their skirts detonated on Thursday November 3: from two tonnes of ground-effect grip to 'two tonnes of flat-bottomed fun'. Yet the governing body's only...

Continental notes

JUST outside the royal park in which the Monza track is situated is a residential area of large Victorian-type mansions, and one of these was taken over some years ago by Signor Dei for his Scuderia Centro-Sud racing school and club. It is also used by numerous organisations for social functions, and the gardens on a hot summer evening are an ideal setting for an informal cocktail party. During...

XIV Grand Prix de Monaco

A really convincing win for Moss Monte Carlo, May 13th. The Classic Grand Prix of Monaco, held through the streets of Monte Carlo, was once again for Formula 1 cars and counted in the World Championship series, being the second in the 1956 list. Naturally all the big factory teams entered, leaving very little room for private owners, and in view of the town circuit being short and narrow a...

Reflections in the Monte Carlo puddles

It was a few seconds before ten minutes to five on Sunday June 3rd that Jacky Ickx, as Clerk of the Course for the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, finally gave the instruction to show the red flag and the chequered flag at the start line, thereby defusing what was quickly becoming an explosive contest between Alain Prost's McLaren MP4/2 and the Hart-engined Toleman TG184 of new boy Ayrton Senna. Taking a...

Matters of moment

A splendid garden party! Those who worry about the health of Grand Prix racing should be reassured by the success of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. At midnight on Friday many thousands of enthusiasts were having the time of their lives within the Silverstone area: two discos (one, in the paddock, run by race sponsors Marlboro), barbecues, eats and drinks stalls were all doing roaring...

Dino: That's Amore...

Nimbler than a Testa Rossa, and almost as quick, Ferrari’s 246 Sport Dino is a delicate jewel. We took one for a little exercise and fell in love By Colin Goodwin Once, when a new Dodge Viper was being delivered to my house for a test, I was unable to sleep the previous night because of the excitement. It has not happened many times since, but last night I lay awake thinking about driving this...

de Portago

Few playboys lived as hard as Spanish marquis `Fon' de Portago — or drove as fast. Doug Nye on how Ferrari's most dashing driver earned Enzo's respect For any who admire the days when drivers were fat and tyres were skinny, the name `Fon' de Portago will have particular resonance. Not because he was tubby - another Fangio or Gonzalez; far from it but because his name stands tall among those who...

REFLECTIONS – Ferrari P4 sighting stirs Daytona memories – The motivation that will drive Kubica onwards – For Montoya, NASCAR racing still beats F1 Even when u are in entirely familiar surroundings — as I was a few weeks ago in the Daytona paddock — surprises still lie in wait occasionally, and you get stopped in your tracks. As I have written many times before, they do things properly at...

Reflections— Prost like-Button leaves Hamilton shaken— Villeneuve's fear of falling out a window... The opening round of the 2012 World Championship, in Australia, rather put me in mind of the 1988 Mexican Grand Prix in one respect. At both races the McLarens had the front row to themselves, with the team's acknowledged charger of the moment — then Ayrton Senna, now Lewis Hamilton — on pole...
