The South African Grand Prix

A Clean Sweep by Brabham Kyalami, Johannesburg, October 15th Under normal conditions the South African GP takes place at the beginning of the season and when the 1983 season was originally planned it was thus, but the agreed change in the Formula One rules that outlawed sliding side skirts and under-car aerodynamics for 1983 meant that there was a dire shortage of time before the South African...

Riding with Regie

A Ride to Remember in Renault's Yellow 2-seater Turbo Three days spent in the cold but sunny South of France tend to be more memorable than the same period in the damp of an English winter. When those three days also contain the chance to drive, examine or ride in the results of a giant mass-manufacturer's involvement in motorsport, then the occasion becomes worthy of less than casual recall....

The Good, the Mad & the Ugly

These are the three fastest road ferraris ever made. Each is incredible but, says Andrew Frankel, one is greatest of all We came across a curve, arcing uphill to the right. The brakes were not needed. I watched the F40 as it turned in. There was no squat as it hit the compression before the hill nor discernable roll as it shrieked ahead and away. Cocooned in the GTO, turbochargers whistling...

Farewell to an artist

Alain Prost's retirement leaves Ayrton Senna a clear road We used to have a sort of natural culling of drivers. We used to lose one or two a year and if Prost or Mansell had been killed, it would have been forgotten after a couple of races." There can be few motorsport enthusiasts who are not now familiar with those words, attributed to Bernie Ecclestone by two colleagues during an interview in...

Two Pros At Work

If Alain Prost's brilliant manoeuvre had worked at the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix's 49th lap, the Frenchman still would have been the leader of the World Championship chase after 76 gruelling laps of the tortuous Hungaroring. Instead, team-mate Ayrton Senna yet again pushed the nose of his Honda Marlboro McLaren first across the finish line, 0.529 seconds ahead of Prost. It was the team's...

Simon Taylor

No sooner had Michael Schumacher flashed over the Suzuka finishing line to win the Japanese Grand Prix than he'd thrust open his visor and was beating both clenched fists up and down on Ferrari's high-tech steering wheel. The euphoria as he tasted his own third world title must have been almost overwhelmed by a towering surge of relief— the same emotion that reduced him to tears at Monza after he...
