100 years of Maserati

It seems so improbable: a century has elapsed since Alfieri Maserati set up shop in Bologna, initially carrying out general engineering work and perfecting his own brand of spark plugs. Scroll forward to the present, and his surname is synonymous with exotic GTs and illustrious racing cars. Alfieri and his siblings forged a legend, one that cannot be distilled into an attention-grabbing soundbite...

BMW's M-powered Coupe

— only for a few WHEN motorsports enthusiasts think of BMW, images of the 3-litre CSL (ligntweight) road car and its turbocharged derivative handled by the likes of Ronnie Peterson, Hans Stuck and Gunnar Nilsson spring to mind. Interest waned a little when the 635 was introduced in 1978, extra weight and superior comfort being acceptable in the market place but robbing the Coupe of its sporting...

Lunch with... Jo Ramirez

The personable Mexican looks back over 40 years of Formula 1 glories and struggles, friendships and tragedies By Simon Taylor The problem is, lunch isn’t long enough. Over 40 seasons, this man has been friend and confidant to a succession of F1 heroes, helped them celebrate their victories and, too often, mourned their loss. He was inside Ferrari when it was Enzo’s fiefdom, with Tyrrell when Ken’...

Traction control and ABS

Does Formula One really need to run all the technology we take for granted in road cars? The first time you hear it, as a car accelerates hard out of a tight corner and runs up through the gears, it sounds just like a serious misfire. It isn't. This is traction control at work. Many are already used to it on their road cars. BMW and Mercedes-Benz, for example, have had it for years. Some may even...

New Cars - Lamborghini Diablo

There are certain things in life that are unattainable for the average person — buying a Rembrandt, purchasing a case of Chateau Margaux every week, owning a Scottish castle or skiing at Saint Moritz. Into this category falls staying for a weekend at the Loews Hotel in Monte Carlo and owning a Lamborghini. While we cannot claim to any such aspirations, MOTOR SPORT at least had the privilege of...

The Wankel Mercedes-Benz

In the spring there was a great rustling in Europe, and in other parts of the world, when the mighty Daimler-Benz empire let it be known that they had developed a three-rotor Wankel engine for use in a Mercedes-Benz sports coupé. Had any lesser firm made such an announcement it would have been met with mild curiosity, but when Daimler-Benz do something everyone takes it seriously, for they are...

Captain Scarlet

In a few tempestuous years, Ingeniere Bizzarrini walked out on Ferrari, gave Lamborghini its greatest asset, fell in with and then out with Iso, and then put his own name to some dramatic creations. LM has been trying one out. Forty years ago, Tony Vandervell was the first in a long line of motoring folk who publicly declared an intention to knock Enzo Ferrari and his "bloody red cars" off their...

Classic quartet

This month, we profile four classic sports cars of the 1970s, and point out some of the pitfalls potential buyers may face. Sports car fans were spoiled for choice in the 1970s. The fastest and most exotic machines came from Italy in the form of the V12-powered Ferraris and Lamborghinis and V8 Maseratis, but all the while the Italians produced a second layer of smaller, less expensive though...

A foregone conclusion for Prost? - or will Schumacher spring a major surprise? Has there ever been a season in which there has been so much uncertainty even before the racing begins? Back in 1990, of course, Ayrton Senna was the bete noire of F1 after his outburst against FISA following the exclusion from victory in the Japanese GP that he always believed cost him that year's World Championship....
