1993 British Grand Prix race report - Hill makes a point

  Xenophobia, team tactics and a very small crowd; the first Mansell-less British GP since 1981 broke some new ground, but the end result was familiar In the end, all the pre-race hype about team tactics became academic, but while it lasted the long-anticipated showdown between Williams-Renault team's Damon Hill and Alain Prost was really quite a humdinger. In the week leading up to Britain's...

Scotch with ice

For someone who will only just turn 24 on the after the Brazilian Grand Prix, David Coulthard is blessed with remarkable sang froid. We caught up with him on the eve of his first full World Championship season There were few moments of levity in international motor racing last year. If you looked hard enough, you could find oases of good news, but generally even the bright points tended to be...

Looking Back with Mike Hailwood

Few competitors have made the transition from motorcycle racing to the world of Formula One with the same success as Mike Hailwood. John Surtees of course, for whom Hailwood drove Grand Prix cars for over two years, won seven World Championships on two wheels as well as one on four wheels, but apart from him only a small handful attempted the switch. Geoff Duke tried abortively, while Gary...

On the limit, off message

Jody Scheckter is the most misunderstood and under-appreciated Champion. He's remembered mostly via a handful of snapshot moments, but now it's time, writes David Malsher, to pull his career into focus Ferrari had romanced him. He had joined as its number one; Gilles was its number two. All seemed in order... until South Africa, of all places. The third grand prix of the 1979 season witnessed...

Continental notes

I must start this month's notes with a postscript to my remarks in the last issue of Motor Sport concerning a certain 2-litre Porsche Carrera that became unstable at speeds of over 115 m.p.h. due to the tyres that were fitted.
