The month in Motor Sport

August 16: Upon confirmation of his two-year deal with Ferrari, Michael Schumacher promptly touts Damon Hill as favourite for the 1996 title! The German reasons that Williams is still likely to have the best engine/chassis combination — but maintains that this wasn't the kind of challenge he was seeking. Meanwhile, Ferrari's current number one driver, Gerhard Berger, fires a couple of broadsides...

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...

Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Modern Times

While Ferrari scored a predicted 1-2 at Silverstone, helped no end by the superiority of Bridgestone's wet-weather tyres over Michelin's, the chief excitement of the meeting surrounded the financial fate of the Arrows team. Non-payment of £3.2 million-worth of bills due to Cosworth for the team's engines meant that, on Niki Lauda's orders, the vital electronic control units needed to run at...

Patrick Head

FEISTY JUST LIKE HIS DAD May was a difficult time at Williams, having started the season far from where we had planned, but I won't dwell upon the steps we are taking to build a stronger team and a more consistent future. Formula 1 is a hard business, but the staff at Williams are all professionals and apply themselves to their tasks with 100 per cent commitment. Motor Sport has asked me to write...

Against expectations

  In the end, the Brazilian Grand Prix went against all expectations. Few would seriously have bet against the chances of Ayrton Senna, on his homeground, and the Williams-Renault. Even less so if you gave full credibility (and there was every justification to) to stories that the Brazilian had actually lapped Imola in recent testing another six-tenths of a second quicker than Michael Schumacher...

EUROPEAN GRAND PRIX

Schumacher moves closer. On his return from suspension the World Championship leader extends his advantage, as Mansell's comeback fizzles. The folly of Jerez as a Grand Prix track was never better illustrated than on the afternoon of Sunday, October 16. The sherry region's idea of a racetrack provided many of the safety facilities that were so conspicuously lacking when Martin Donnelly had his...

The Editor Discusses This "Hot-Rod" Business

The "hot-rod" craze, which originated in Southern California in the late nineteen-thirties, has spread throughout America. Over here we find the speeds achieved by "souped-up" L-head engined American cars over a flat-out quarter-mile difficult to believe, in spite of electric timing. After all, a 1932 Ford V8 coupé, sans wings, doing 120 m.p.h., takes some swallowing, and perhaps that is as much...

Fears Of A Clown

One of the old guard who should move over for youth, or the finest unfulfilled talent of his generation? Mark Skewis takes a look at Johnny Herbert's F1 career. Of the ridiculously small percentage of racing drivers who make it to Formula One, precious few ever win a Grand Prix: fewer still get to achieve that feat in front of their home crowd. Which was why, when Johnny Herbert crossed the...

The power or the glory?

Is Formula One today merely a sad, bloated caricature of its once glorious past or have we, in fact, never had it so good? Shaun Campbell casts an impassive eye over the years and decides Was there ever a golden time of Grand Prix racing and, if so, when was it? What gives it distinction? Are we experiencing one now, or the good old days finally gone forever? And they really that good? Is it even...
