THE FORMULA ONE SCENE Regie Renault AT THE end of last season the Renault Formula One team reviewed its season and decided that changes had to be made. Main Prost had won races for the team, but it lost the Drivers' Championship to Nelson Piquet at the last moment, and it lost the Constructors' Championship to Ferrari, so altogether had not done very well. The outcome was that at short notice...

Formula One: The Austrian Grand Prix

A very nice race Knittelfeld, August 14th Once again the Austrian Grand Prix followed hot on the heels of the German Grand Prix and while part of the "circus" flew back to England on Sunday evening after the Hockenheimring race, to return to Vienna on the following Thursday, the rest loaded up their transporters, drove to the Osterreichring, unloaded and set up camp in readiness for the start of...

The Formula One Scene

DURING the past season at most of the Grand Prix events there were meetings and discussions between everybody involved in the Formula One scene. Drivers had meetings, team chiefs had meetings, designers had meetings, sponsors had meetings, FOCA had meetings, FISA had meetings, the Press had meetings, the tyre people had meetings, the organisers had meetings and I think the only people who didn't...

Two at the Top

Ayrton Senna bears the responsibility for prompting this particular article! When Team Lotus's number one driver decided to veto the recruitment of Derek Warwick as his team-mate at the start of the year, his attitude provoked a wide-ranging debate amongst the Formula One fraternity. But, aside from questioning whether it is prudent in the long term for a team to allow its number one driver to...

On the other side

One thing that little Mr Ecclestone and his Formula One Constructors Association has brought into the world of Grand Prix racing is collective organisation and we recently witnessed a prime example. For some years now we have had Grand Prix races in Canada and the United States and they have been arranged to take place on consecutive weekends, sometimes the United States being first, sometimes...

What's in a contract?

Whilst these words were being written, the Formula 1 market for 1992 looked on - paper - to be relatively stable, leastways at the sharp end of the grid. Williams had long since confirmed that it would be retaining Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese, McLaren likewise Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger. After weeks of frenzied speculation in the wake of Alain Prost's dismissal, Ferrari has finally...

Notes On The Cars At Imola

AS THIS was the last European Grand Prix for this year, and the last opportunity for factories to do anything close to home, both Ferrari and Alfa Romeo took the opportunity of making clear their intentions for 1981. Ferrari ran their turbo-charged 1 1/2-litre V6 during practice and Alfa Romeo had their turbo-charged 1 1/2-litre V8 engine on show in the pits, with the information that it would...

Ferrari: 50 years of boom and slump

It is the most charismatic name in Formula One, but not simply because of its successes. Ferrari's flaws and failures over the team's first half century played a big part in creating the legend 1950s Unsteady as she grows Enzo Ferrari faced personal loss and huge pressure as his new company grew: by Paul Fearnley His office overlooked the factory gates that way he could keep an eye on his...

Notes on the cars and teams at Kyalami

Two things really stood out in the pit lane in South Africa, one was the impressive row of Brabham-BMW cars and the other was the smooth and beautifully made monocoques of the new Ferraris. In sharp contrast was the presentation of the new March cars which really scintillated, in black and green, and the down-at-heel appearances of the Autodelta Alfa Romeo. Team Lotus was there in force, with...

The Dutch Grand Prix

The Dutch Grand Prix — Those McLarens again Zandvoort, August 26th TWELVE MONTHS ago almost to the day there was great interest in the paddock at Zandvoort and all the "top brass" of the Porsche factory were in evidence. It signalled the appearance of Porsche influence in Formula 1 for the first time since 1964 though this time it was not a Porsche Formula I car, but merely a Porsche designed and...
