Reflections in an icy blast

There were several winds blowing across the Jarama Autodrome, some of them winds of change, some were winds of discontent and some were mingled with an air of apprehension. The all-pervading wind was the one coming from the snow-covered mountains to the north of the circuit. Situated as it is in a once arid plain, but now growing houses at an alarming rate, there is nothing to break the wind as...

Germany’s Championship

Turbocharging for (nearly) all Ranging over Germany and Belgium, the deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft is an 11-round series that caters for some superbly engineered cars of extraordinary value. Basically the cars conform to Group 5 of the FIA International regulations, popularly known as the Silhouette formula. There are exceptions here and there, but largely this has been interpreted as the...

2014 Goodwood Revival

You always know what you’re going to get at the Goodwood Revival. The set dressing, the clothes, the cars, the smiling drivers… it’s the same every time. So how come it still manages to surprise and make its captivated audience, many of whom return year after year, gawp and gasp in amazement? We guess some things are never tiresome. Each Revival leaves defining images that linger, then blend in...

100 years of Maserati

It seems so improbable: a century has elapsed since Alfieri Maserati set up shop in Bologna, initially carrying out general engineering work and perfecting his own brand of spark plugs. Scroll forward to the present, and his surname is synonymous with exotic GTs and illustrious racing cars. Alfieri and his siblings forged a legend, one that cannot be distilled into an attention-grabbing soundbite...

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

Profile: Ferrari 312T3

The car which brought Gilles Villeneuve his first grand prix victory and placed the Canadian firmly in motor racing’s pantheon of legendary drivers. Words: Paul Fearnley. Photography: Alex P This is the car in which Gilles Villeneuve learned his Formula One craft, won over (most of) his critics, became the apple of Enzo’s eye, captured the tifosi’s heart – and passed into Canadian lore. This is...

Tasmanian double

Intended purely for racing Down Under, this Lotus 49 suddenly found itself carrying the world champion’s Grand Prix hopes at Silverstone Writer Gordon Cruickshank, photographer Simon Clay It can’t be often that half a car has turned the racing world on its head, but Colin Chapman’s Lotus 49 was an evolutionary surge – yet only half the story. The other half, of course, was the single most...

Reluctant hero

He pulled Niki Lauda from the wreckage of his blazing Ferrari, fought in Vietnam and now pilots humanitarian flights for seriously ill children, but Brett Lunger plays down his many achievements… Writer Andrew Marriott Brett Lunger has always been understated, self-analytical, supremely fit and serious. That was his manner back in the 1970s when I handled his public relations in Europe and now,...

Letters

Letter of the month Fear of the past? Watching coverage of the German GP qualifying session, I was struck by how poorly F1 connects with its past. The Sky team made brief mention of the old Hockenheim, Jim Clark’s death and John Surtees winning in Germany, but their focus is on the here and now. I don’t blame broadcasters for that, but F1 should do far more to connect with the history of the...

Reflections with... Nigel Roebuck

The thoughts of chairman Lauda, why politically correct is incorrect In a changing world there is always Niki Lauda, and thank the Lord for that. As Formula 1 ties itself in ever more convoluted knots, a chat with Lauda is always refreshing, not least for the reassurance that one is not alone in being dismayed by the showbiz path on which F1 appears increasingly set. A few minutes with Niki and...
