107 per cent commitment

Why Forti backs FIA's move to squeeze non-performers With Formula One grids continuing to dwindle, small teams won't be battling against each other to qualify next season. But they will be fighting the clock. From the end of this year, cars will have to qualify within 107 per cent of the pole-winner's time in order to start the race. Had the rule been enforced this season, Forti Corse would still...

The Formula One Situation

Apart from one mild fluttering the situation in Formula One racing regarding teams, drivers and cars, was surprisingly stable when the 1975 season began in Buenos Aires on January 12th. A full three months had elapsed since the last Grand Prix race in 1974, which was at Watkins Glen on October 6th, and during that time things have been very quiet from the point of view of drivers changing teams,...

History Against Mansell

As the lights were doused, the conference hall fell silent. But not for long. Soon the journalists' senses if, indeed, they are endowed with such were assaulted by the vibration of music loud enough to send you scurrying for the aspirins, and a 'star wars' laser display which would have American Presidents reaching straight for the cheque book. Mercifully, the world finally halted long enough for...

On January 21st the 1979 Formula One season is due to start with the Argentine GP on the Buenos Aires Autodrorne, followed two weeks later by the Brazilian GP, this year back at Interlagos after a brief flirtation with the new Autodrome at Rio de Janeiro, which did not excite the Formula One followers as much as it excited the "holiday makers". After that it is the usual round...

The numbers game

Unravelling the mystery of various Maserati 250Fs… The Maserati 250F is everyone's favourite '50s Grand Prix car. It was not a landmark design in terms of technological development, but it was as successful as any in its era, and above all it epitomised the aesthetic appeal of a Grand Prix car in the last days before designers discovered that racing cars worked better with their engines behind...

Off-the-wall racers return

Kiwi Roger Wills raced two cars from the Donington Collection during the Monaco Historic GP, including the March 701 that Chris Amon raced in 1970. Wills added the March and the ex-Patrick Depailler sixwheel Tyrrell P34 to his stable when selected cars were sold from Tom Wheatcroft's collection.

The first of March

It's spent decades hanging on a wall, but now the first-ever March Grand Prix car is to run again - 40 years after one lucky journalist got to test drive it at Silverstone... It was like bumping into an old flame. Forty years ago, in our distant youth, we'd shared just one dance. In the intervening decades we'd both moved on; inevitably, we were both showing our age. I never meant a thing to her...

Dirty politics? Bring in the cleaner...

Think of this year’s political crisis in F1, and it’s impossible not to think of the FISA/FOCA war. And then as now, Bernie Ecclestone will play a pivotal role in the outcome By Maurice Hamilton It is early afternoon on Saturday November 1, 1980. A call is placed to the Brabham headquarters in Chessington, Surrey. The conversation goes something like this: “’Allo?” “Ah, hello. Could I speak to Mr...
