The Formula One Scene

Swedish Grand Prix There have been a number of unusual happenings on the Formula One front recently, all of which have caused unrest and much discussion. The Swedish Grand Prix was announced as being cancelled only one month before it was due (June 16th) and basically the reason was that the Swedish organisers had not deposited the £250,000 or whatever the current figure is that the Formula One...

Is there a brake on F1 talent?

Is money the overriding factor which influences driver choice, graduation and progression? It's still there, on my notebook for the 1989 Brazilian GP at Rio. A long, inky stroke across the lap chart. The legacy of a nudge from a hyper-excited Mike Kranefuss as he had drawn to my attention the progress of Benetton driver Johnny Herbert. It was not as if I hadn't been following him throughout, even...

The Formula One scene

The 1976 Formula One Season (the Formula One Constructors have successfully knocked the Grand out of Prix racing!) is surely one that everyone will be pleased to forget, though how all the faults are going to be corrected by the time the 1977 season starts is difficult to see. There is little point in re-capping in detail on what happened when, who won what and where, for it has all been recorded...

British Grand Prix Preview -- Goodyear

DSJ has celebrated many an anniversary, the latest has been Goodyear's 250th win in Grand Prix racing..... Keeping a statistical score is a full time job for some enthusiasts, whether it be the number of pole positions gained by Ayrton Senna, the number of race wins by Alain Prost or the number of times a team has failed to finish, and the excitement usually begins at the figure 50, it being a...

The Season Underway

Now that we have had the first two races of the 1990 Formula One World Championship season we can take stock of reality and forget the rumours and surmise of the past winter. At the front nothing has changed much from last year, McLaren-Honda, Ferrari and Williams-Renault are setting the pace once again, with the same six drivers at the top, but slightly shuffled about as regards teams and...

Formula One Scene

In the Beginning Just when the 1991 season looked settled FISA reared its ugly head and threw a handful of spanners into the Formula One works. A number of constructional details that were thought to be mandatory for 1991 were postponed, and the decision for 14 of the 16 races to count for a driver's collection of points for the title of World Champion, was suddenly changed to all 16 to count....

You can't help but feel a degree of sympathy for Eddie Irvine, a driver who while keeping his foot in it manages to put his foot in it. If ever a driver attracted trouble in spades, it's the Ulsterman. In his maiden Grand Prix he ends up on the receiving end of a Schnapps-fuelled punch from Ayrton Senna....

The unlikely lads

Nigel Mansell, McLaren driver. An unthinkable notion in the past, but now circumstance and market forces have brought the two together… The tinkle of the Park Lane Hilton's finest china coffee cups and the gentle strains of the Penguin Café Orchestra hardly seemed an appropriate backdrop for the impending arrival of Nigel Mansell. Then again, most people's memories can clearly recall the day, in...

The Formula One Scene

Had I gone to Formula One races in South America instead of keeping my sense of proportion by staying in the mud, snow and ice of our winter, this article could have been entitled "Reflections in the South American Sun", and with the sun being so bright the reflections would have been even brighter. As it was I left the races in Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo in the capable hands of A. H. On the...

Notes on the cars at Kyalami

After the raveges of the Brazilian GP there was a lot of rebuilding going on in the various teams and also a lot of building of new cars ready for the South African GP. Everybody who mattered managed to get the work done in good time and fly every thing out to Johannesburg the week before the official practice began, some teams finishing off the new cars in the pit lane garages. There were no new...
