F1 Asides

When F1 is on the air, dare I say it, telephones are disconnected, knocks on the study door ignored and curtains drawn if sun is likely to diminish the ITV reception. Since I ceased to attend actual races, that is how I follow the F1 scene, although Jenks, who had no use for TV, used to tell me he preferred Simon Taylor's commentaries on Radio 5. (Simon has since joined the ITV F1 team, of course...

Racer, author, survivor

Hans Ruesch won scores of pre-war races and then turned to authorship Hans Ruesch is about the last of the pre-war racers who is still with us. He was born in Naples in 1913, his mother a Neapolitan-speaking Swiss, his father a German-born industrial archaeologist, so the boy spoke both languages, and later added two more. After five years at a Swiss boarding school Ruesch went to Zurich...

Formula One: German GP

Attrition My small pocket dictionary says attrition is the "act of rubbing away, to wear down", and no more suitable word could describe what the German Grand Prix at Hockenheimring did to the Formula One entry. We knew it was going to be fast, and we knew it was going to be hard on engines, but nobody anticipated that of the twenty-one turbocharged l½-litre cars which started, only two would be...

Seeing red

On a number of counts F1 plumbed new depths at Hockenheim, but a long overdue victory for Ferrari, courtesy of Gerhard Berger, provided a timely uplift An all-Ferrari front row in qualifying, scandalous allegations about the Benetton team, shunts involving 10 cars before the first corner, retirement for Michael Schumacher, a horrible pit lane fire, victory for Gerhard Berger and Ferrari. Oh, and...

Tale of two Taylors

Sir, For several years now I have been researching the life and times of the late John Taylor, who perished in the 1966 German Grand Prix. I have been working in close collaboration with John’s widow Mrs Irene Peutrill, who has very kindly loaned me John’s extensive archive of scrapbook cuttings, photos and motor racing memorabilia. For the record, John was a very successful ’60s privateer racer...

Cotton On

WSC Prospects -- False Dawn? Just eight 3.5-litre cars were registered for the 1991 World Sportscar Championship when FISA closed the list on March 15, and the administrators must have thanked their lucky stars that they had decided, somewhat begrudgingly a year ago, to allow the 'unlimited' fuel consumption controlled cars a year of grace. There are 10 of those, making a half-decent grid of 18...

Visit to a German GP

Sir, The reference to the 1931 German Grand Prix in VEV in the May 1978 issue was of great interest to Me. At that time I was 15 and living with a family in Bonn for the express purpose of learning German (which I still speak pretty well, with a Rhineland accent!). The day of the race was spoilt by drenching rain and the coach taking us front Bonn arrived too late for the start. Carraciola won...
