Lombard RAC Rally of Great Britain

When FISA finally gave in to an overwhelming demand and created, in 1979, an official World Championship for rally drivers, rather than just their cars, the tussle for the title was nail-bitingly close. All year Hannu Mikkola and Björn Waldegård made little impression on each other, and if one moved ahead significantly, the other soon caught up. Finally, the first holder of the title was...

Formula One: Australian Grand Prix

Bowing out Gerhard Berger sustained his winning momentum to reel off his second victory in a fortnight when the Grand Prix circus arrived in Adelaide for the Australian Grand Prix, the final round of the sixteen race 1987 World Championship series.

"There were beautiful moments as well as bad. The difficult ones I don't remember"

Were 21 years in F1 a matter of hardship or excitement? Gian Carlo Minardi sits down to chat over a plate of tagliataWriter Ed Foster The history books show that Minardi scored just 38 world championship points during a 21-year stint in Formula 1. Scratch the surface of those pages, though, and you see that not only did this little Italian team often punch above its weight, but the list of...

Lancia joins 4wd club

There can be nothing more galling than to see your design rendered obsolete before its service life has even begun, but that's the prospect facing development engineers at Austin-Rover, Mitsubishi, Citroen and, probably a few more establishments around Europe and the Far East. The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16, and the Lancia Delta S4 announced a few days before Christmas, have trumped all rivals adhering...

A Challenge Brewing?

Two burning questions emanated from an otherwise dull Mexican Grand Prix. Both concerned Ferrari and Gerhard Berger. Might he have got on terms with Honda Marlboro McLaren if he had made a better start? And might he have been able to exert late-race pressure on overheating winner Alain Prost if his F187 hadn't given him spurious fuel read-outs which obliged him to ease his pace after the halfway...

Formula One scene

Power game At last, in the first week in February, we heard officially where the Formula One "circus" will be going this year. Any other branch of our sport which took so long to make up its official mind on the all-important calendar would have been ostracized long ago. Formula One may be the top branch of the motor sporting tree, but it does not set much of an example to those lower down. I am...

Formula One: Spanish GP

Spellbinding! Alain was brilliant. I gave it all I had, but today he proved that he is the best in the world." There might have been a hint of post-race tiredness in Nigel Mansell's voice, but there was no disappointment. Just admiration. Jerez, scene of the Tio Pepe Spanish Grand Prix, should have given the normally aspirated cars their best crack at the turbos since Hungaroring, yet nothing...

Lunch with... Pat Symonds

He’s overseen title-winning cars, engineered Senna and Schumacher, but the memory of Singapore 2008 remains painful… In the intense, rarefied world of Formula 1 a driver has to deal with people on many different levels. To his sponsors and the media he’ll be cheerful and optimistic. To his team boss he’ll be professional and determined. To other drivers, including his own team-mate, his demeanour...
