Hates losing, is embarrassed by winning

As the Venturi-Larrousse team announces its plans, Robin Herd reflects on his rationale in F1 fourth time around "I think it's pretty normal with most sportsmen. I'm not saying I'm a top sportsman but certainly a lot of tennis players and golfers will tell you that losing is a much stronger emotion than winning." says Robin Herd. "It's the thrill of the chase. Stevenson said. 'It's better to...

Mansell lured to Goodwood

Former World Champion and latter-day Grand Prix Masters hero Nigel Mansell has been lined up for this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Festival of Speed organiser the Earl of March said: "Nigel is an all-time...

Track back -- 50/30/20/10 years ago

1985 -- Vatanen's four-minute warning Finn storms back from huge checkpoint penalty to win Monte for Peugeot When you commit just about the most basic error a co-driver can make, you know it's going to haunt you forever. No surprise then, that when Motor Sport asked Terry Harryman if the 1985 Monte Carlo Rally is an event he is reminded of often, his reply was to the point: "Yep.” Silence....

McLaren's MP4/7A

Ever since its crushing defeat by Williams in the South African GP, McLaren has been pushing ahead with development of its new MP4/7A. The new car, gestation of which was overseen by chief designer Neil Oatley and aerodynamicist Henri Durand, is based around a new carbon composite monocoque. The MP4/7A is not only a departure from McLaren's previous aerodynamic thinking, it also features a semi-...

Benetton at the double

Schumacher wins again and extends his unexpeded championship lead Had such a scenario been suggested at the beginning of the year it would have seemed laughable: Ayrton Senna 20 points down on arch-rival Michael Schumacher with two races gone. But there was nothing laughable for Senna about the 1l circus's first visit to Hajime Tanaka's TI Circuit Aida. The Brazilian worked very hard indeed for...

Brazilian GP

Only 12 Formula One cars were attracted to the impressive 5-mile circuit of Interlagos near the large Brazilian City of Sao Paulo. The race was organised by the same team who efficiently ran the Formula Two series at the end of last year but, even so, the race did seem to be in doubt in some quarters until only days beforehand. John Player Team Lotus, with the top Brazilian driver on their...

Under scrutiny: TAG McLaren

The perfectionists Travelling along Albert Drive past the Woking Business Park, it is doubtful whether the average driver would appreciate that the building bearing the dayglo TAG McLaren logo behind the securely-guarded perimeter fence is the hub of one of the most successful Grand Prix teams in history — the team which re-wrote the record book in 1988 by winning 15 of the 16 Grands Prix, 15...

Let Loose...

The F5A was the most successful of all Fittipaldi's Grand Prix designs. Andrew Frankel takes to the track in Emerson's finest. Introductions to Formula One cars come no better. The team is relaxed, the owner smiling, both unreasonably generous reactions to the sight of me clambering aboard their Grand Prix car at Donington. Macdonald Race Engineering is turning Fittipaldi F5A/02 from museum piece...

Lunch with... Jackie Oliver

This Essex lad is more proud of his record as an F1 team owner than of his achievements behind the wheel. But those were varied and significant, too By Simon Taylor The sharp, punchy little guy from Romford has a downbeat view of his own racing career. He led his first home Grand Prix, and was set for a fairytale win when the car failed. He scored a historic Le Mans victory for Ford. He did 50...
