The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

1981 British Grand Prix race report - A very popular win

John Watson crosses the line in his McLaren to win after late drama for Rene Arnoux. Photo: Motorsport Images The pits and...

The French Grand Prix

Inconclusive Dijon-Prenois, July 5th The most important aspect of the 1981 French Grand Prix was that it saw the return of the Goodyear Tyre Company to Formula One. It will be recalled that they withdrew entirely last winter during the fracas between Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors and officialdom. Thanks to the support of Michelin, who agreed to supply everyone with tyres...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

Notes on the cars and teams at Imola

Now that the Grand Prix season has begun in Europe and teams can work from their home bases we should see some interesting strides forwards in the mechanical scene in the paddock. For the first three races everyone was "on tour" leading a gypsy-like existence which made it impossible to do much in the way of serious development. The craze of the moment to develop ways of cheating the "no-skirt"...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

Formula One Trend of Design

Steering Gear The Formula One designers are unanimous on one design feature, and that is the use of an enclosed rack-and-pinion steering gear. Apart from being mechanically efficient this mechanism fits neatly into the front end layout of a single-seater racing car. In the position and mounting of the steering rack there is some difference of opinion; while one designer mounts it behind the...

Modern Times

If a litre of optimism is worth a second a lap, a lot of lap records will be broken this year. As each Formula One team has launched its new car to the press we've been subjected to buckets of fine words and dry ice. And the more there is to prove, the more theatrical the launch - none more so than for this season's completely new team, British American Racing. Actually, these days no team is...
