Formula One Scene

Time is tight Last month I described how the Brabham team received a slap on the wrist from the FIA technical scrutineers for a rule infringement, discovered after the end of qualifying at the German GP. This month the Williams team received a severe kick up the backside after qualifying at the Belgian GP. At each Grand Prix, four cars are selected at random by the technical commission as...

Nuvolari and the master race

When the might of the German racing scene turned up at the Nürburgring in 1935, no one expected Tazio Nuvolari to beat the Third Reich into second place. Shaun Campbell explains how he did it The race has been in progress for nearly four hours. It's nearly over – there's just one lap left to run – but the man who's been leading for the last 150 miles or so looks anything but confident. The...

Jochen Rindt Memorial Race

A Sunday afternoon drive for Ickx Hockenheim-Ring, Germany, June 13th With the ban on the Belgian Grand Prix by the CSI the Formula One world was faced with three clear weekends between Monte Carlo and the next event, due at Zandvoort. For some who were repairing the ravages of Monte Carlo this was a good thing, while others were taking the opportunity to enlarge their stock of 1971 material and...

The career of Philippe Etancelin Although he came to motor racing relatively late in life, Philippe Etancelin was renowned for his combative style and passion. Bill Boddy recalls one of France's most talented drivers Great racing drivers have come from many parts of the world, a blinding glimpse of the obvious as readers of Punch once used to say of similar wideopen assertions. I am not going to...

Home-made hero

In just two years Peter Westbury became Britain's top hillclimber — in a self-built car. Then he hit the tracks. By Gordon Cruickshank Too bad there weren't any mobile 'phones in 1971, or Peter Westbury might be in the Formula One record books. When BRM needed a driver for the Italian Grand Prix the team rang for him – but he was on holiday and out of contact. So they called Peter Gethin instead...

Advantage Badoer

The European F3000 Championship is looking more open than it has done for many seasons. Halfway through what should be a 10-race schedule, only nine points separated the top six in the championship, and series leader Luca Badoer, as consistent as he is fleet, has only clocked up 22 points, despite finishing every race to date in the top six. It is quite feasible, if unlikely, therefore, that the...

Going downhill fast

Lap of the Gods Jin Clark's ability to administer a short, sharp shock stunned rivals. Shaun Campbell recalls his 1961 Belgian Grand Prix win, seized over the first two corners at a Soggy Spa The qualities that stood Jim Clark apart from his rivals were many. There was his versatility, for example — he was a driver who could win in single-seaters, sports cars and saloons on street circuits, mad...

F1 Tyres

Fl Tyres Sir, May I with due modesty agree with everything you wrote in your September editorial on contemporary n tyres, except when you suggest that it should be permissible officially to flag in "all drivers who are running on incorrect tyres". Surely even the "aces" of the circus must be left some judgement of their own; balancing the risks of running on not ideal tyres against the certain...

Sole survivor

Manfred von Brauchitsch is the last remaining link to the glory days of the silver arrows before WWII. He is also, says Alan Henry, a driver whose modest tally of wins in no way reflects his considerable talent. Now 94, he reflects upon a Grand Prix career that started 65 years ago. The first thing you notice is the shock of white hair which stands out dramatically across the crowded room. Then...
