Rising star Vettel is youngest F1 winner

Sebastian Vettel’s astonishing victory for Scuderia Toro Rosso in the Italian Grand Prix has rewritten the history books – and marked the young German as an obvious future target for top Formula 1 teams. He remains firmly under contract to Red Bull Racing, however, for the next three seasons. Having turned 21 on July 3, Vettel first became the youngest F1 poleman at Monza, and then the youngest...

Schumacher’s legacy

In 2010 I wrote in to criticise Michael Schumacher’s driving in the Hungarian GP and was lucky enough to receive a rather nice wristwatch for my troubles. In that letter I said that I didn’t think of him as my favourite driver ever and that his actions in that race were deplorable, but he also had a lot of admirable qualities. In time I hope it is these qualities (hard work and dedication being...

Ferrari’s 20 greatest F1 drivers

Ferrari will have two crowned champions at the helm when it wheels its cars to the grid for the 2014 Australian Grand Prix – a first in world championship terms since Italy 1953, when Alberto Ascari and Nino Farina formed part of a six-strong line-up at Monza. The team has hired many illustrious names before and since, but which are Ferrari's 20 greatest F1 drivers? Writer Simon Arron A curious...

This month on the Motor Sport website

Forum Focus Within a few minutes of posting the Hungarian GP report online, the comments flowed in. A few lauded Mark Webber for his drive, and a few praised Vitaly Petrov for out-qualifying team-mate Robert Kubica for the first time. But the majority focused on the driving of a certain M Schumacher and his move on Rubens Barrichello. “Schumacher is back to his old self,” said Paal Hanson. “He...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

Mansell Is Finally Crowned

Senna wins dramatic race, but second is enough to secure Mansell's first World Championship The first 38 laps of the Hungarian GP did not follow the script that Nigel Mansell would have wished to have signed off, but the inkling of the role that Riccardo Patrese had written in for himself had already become evident on Saturday night. After dominating each practice session, the Italian was in good...

Me and my Arrows

At a time when Formula One cars generally looked very individual, the Shadow and Arrows of 1978 were startlingly similar - and more than one person noticed. Among them was Alan Henry, who describes how he - and arrows - were court in the act It's funny how a throwaway remark can sometimes boomerang. Walking into the Shadow team's garage at the 1978 Silverstone International Trophy meeting, I...

Fair Play

Sir, In response to Mr Morris's letter about overtaking in Formula One, I would say that more than one factor is responsible for 'processional' racing today. Due to the speed of the cars, the duration of the straights is no more than a second or two, thus giving no time to overtake. Also, as the top engine manufacturers approach the limit of power available, and the aerodynamics of the cars...

Tyrrell's Trophy

Ken Tyrrell's Formula One team now has an unassailable points lead in the Colin Chapman Cup for non-turbo cars, its Cosworth DFZ-engined machines having scored 102 points by the end of the Hungarian GP in the hands of Jonathan Palmer and Philippe Streiff.
