Singapore Fling

The Singapore Grand Prix was a typical South-East Asian cocktail of single-seaters, sports and saloons on a challenging road circuit. Eli Solomon looks back Common myth has it that before the Sepang Formula One grand prix in Malaysia, there was nothing in South-East Asia to call a proper race. The roulette player had the Macau casino, Suzie Wong was the girl in the next bar and a-go-go was the...

New muddle for Lotus as race team thrives

With its novel side exhaust consigned to history the former Renault team, that we now know as Lotus, has made a huge step forward this year, and has a package that could give Kimi Räikkönen a genuine shot at winning a GP. Meanwhile there have been major changes behind the scenes in terms of the race team’s relationship with the troubled Group Lotus. In the course of the legal battle with Tony...

Modern Times The San Marino Grand Prix was a significant race, in all sorts of ways. For one thing it showed we're still in for some good Ferrari-vs-McLaren battles this season, even if there is now a danger that St Michael will have the title all wrapped up by Hockenheim. It was our first chance to see a straight fight between the two best teams in F1, all the way to the flag. In Australia the...

The flying doctor on tour

Privateer racer Dr Tony Goodwin didn’t let RAF Service stand the way of his racing exploits, as his new book recalls Back in the late 1960s and early '70s, I found that race reporting was great — if immensely unprofitable — fun. It was wonderful to see real heroes in some of racing history's supreme cars doing battle round the Nürburgring, before it was — as Graham Hill succinctly put it —...

Adam Cooper's Track forward

A new order reigned in Melbourne but a good season may be soured by legal wrangles There was much to enjoy at the season-opening grand prix in Australia, and Giancarlo Fisichella's win for Renault was a popular one. Testing had suggested that the Anglo-French team was going to be on the pace, but who would have thought that the weird circumstances of qualifying would help a Toyota to run second...

Nine months in F1From the glorious to the ghastly, we’ve witnessed it all in a turbulent season of F1. And the repercussions are still being felt…By Rob Widdows March When the teams arrived in Melbourne in March precious few indicators pointed to who might have made the best use of a new set of rules. Pre-season testing at Barcelona suggested that Brawn could be the big surprise despite its last-...

Mat Oxley – MotoGP

Dealing with the pain Rostrum or hospital!” The bike racer’s on-the-grid battle cry is only half a joke. Motorcycle racing is dangerous, everyone knows that. Just ask Jorge Lorenzo, Fiat Yamaha’s much battered-about MotoGP star who recently turned the macho mantra on its head with a French Grand Prix ride that took him from wheelchair to rostrum. Lorenzo’s second place at Le Mans, with broken...

Room on the podium for all

Watching Jenson Button, Nick Heidfeld and Timo Glock blinking in the floodlights at the rain-truncated Malaysian GP’s dusky podium ceremony simply reminded me of the distinctly unchoreographed ‘podia’ witnessed in the not too distant past. Back in the 1970s, for example, it was common for the successful drivers’ chuffed-to-bits mechanics to be right at the heart of the action and sharing in the...
