The Ickx factor

He had the talent to be Formula One World Champion, but did he lack the ambition? Adam Cooper talks to the quixotic Mister Ickx Compile a list of 'Formula One champions who never were' and it's sure to be headed by Stirling Moss, with Ronnie Peterson and Gilles Villeneuve close behind.

Chiron points Sir, Yes, I agree you have produced a great issue, though I hope the reduction of the letters page is not part of a permanent trend… My real reason for writing this month is to raise two or three points about Louis Chiron and his career. I believe that I am right in saying that he was the only driver to have raced in both the Grand Prix Manufacturers’ World Championship series of...

Legends Froilan Gonzalez

When Michael Schumacher won the Belgian GP last year, it was just another Sunday in a Ferrari summer. But Michael's 10th victory of 2002 was also the 100th win for a Ferrari using Shell, and a happy consequence of that was the presence, at Monza, of the man who had scored the first. Jose Froilan Gonzalez's victory in the 1951 British GP was not only the first on Shell, but the first for Ferrari...

The house that Jack built

It lasted thirty years and made the reputation of drivers, designers and a Formula One mogul. Alan Henry charts the story of Brabham from a fledging team to world champion Constructor. Few Grand Prix marques have produced a range of cars as technically diverse and innovative as that designed and built by the Brabham team over its 30 years of participation in Formula One. The team also boasts the...

Second to none

F1 success was slow to come, but in F2 the spectacular Jochen Rindt set the benchmark – even for Clark and Stewart By Paul Fearnley It was the ‘Summer of Shove’ – for Jim Clark at least. All-of-a-sudden Cosworth DFV shove. Most powerful engine, world’s best driver and most advanced car – the just-bolt-it-on-the-back, still-a-bit-twitchy Lotus 49: no contest. From June 4, when he dominated the...

German Grand Prix

After certain sections of Motor Sport had gone to press, and thus too late for inclusion in our analysis of the German GP starting on page 824, Martin Brundle issued a correction to quotes attributed to him after the race. "A mistake in communication led to my saying I had been to see the Race Director after the race and that he had acknowledged his mistake regarding the penalty which was...

Cheap freeze?

Lola's Nick Langley was looking forward to going to Spa. The company's Formula 3000 project manager has had a rum year in Europe, where not one T93/50 chassis has been sold, and he went to Belgium hoping to drum up business for 1994. When he got there, the first thing he learnt was that there will, FIA ratification pending, be a ban on new cars next season . . . This did not make his weekend. The...

Matters of moment

Credit where it's due If you look back 10, 15, 20, or 25 years in the correspondence columns of any motoring magazine you're liable to experience déjà vu, for many of the letters deal with subjects which are still current preoccupations. Indeed, many could be printed today with little alteration. There is the "I would like to thank the marshals. . ." letter; the "what about British drivers?"...

Compound fractures

The tyre battle in 1997 is but the latest of a war that's been raging since the '50s. Nigel Roebuck looks at the bald facts At the 1977 Japanese Grand Prix, one kazuyoshi hoshino qualified 11th. There is no particular reason why this fact should detain us, save that Hoshino's car, a locally built Kojima with Cosworth DFV power, was running on Bridgestone tyres. It was a one-off event for the...
