Formula One Scene

During last winter we had a long spell with no Formula One racing, but even so there was a lot of activity in the re-structuring of teams, both mechanically and in personnel and there was a lot of building and designing of new cars as well as a lot of testing. So much so, in fact, that it was a very busy off-season and when racing eventually started in March there were many things to look forward...

The 31st Monaco Grand Prix

The Wanderer returns

Jacques Laffite is back with Ligier. He is fulfilling a different role nowadays, and he finds that Formula One is an entirely different world. The principal reason for Jacques Laffite's presence in the French resort of Isole 2000 was to take part in some ice racing for Opel. But it was entirely in keeping with the character of the man who, as soon as an F1 qualifying session was over, would leap...

Book Reviews

A man called Mike, by Christopher Hilton. MRP, £16.95.

I returned home to tell puzzled parents about how well Mike Hawthorn had driven. It...

Just had Alan Jones on the phone. That's what I love about this job: whenever it seems to be going pear-shaped, usually on a Monday morning, every now and then, one of my heroes rings the office.

Grand Prix Scene

Vettel win 'icing on cake' for Red Bull Sebastian Vettel earned himself a place in the record books at Abu Dhabi when he became the youngest World Champion in Formula 1 history, although the man himself modestly admitted that Lewis Hamilton — whose previous mark he beat by some six months — could have won his first title a year earlier than he did.

Contractual chess

Are drivers being moved around in F1 like pieces on a chessboard? Back in the winter of 1967 Cooper and BRM locked briefly in a battle over the services of Pedro Rodriguez. It scandalised F1 for an hour or two, and cartoonist Don Grant depicted the hapless Mexican being torn limb from limb in the ensuing tug-of-war. What happened in Estoril last month made that little episode look like a...
