Argentine Grand Prix

Buenos Aires, January 9th Although Argentina is mere, thousands of miles away from the recognised European "home" of Formula One Grand Prix circuit racing, it has organised qualifying rounds in the World Championship intermittently ever since 1953, although there was a gap of 12 years between Bruce McLaren's victory in a Cooper-Climax in 1960 and Jackie Stewart's win with a Tyrrell-Cosworth five...

Formula Two Review - The French Bow Out with Another Title

At the vast Estoril Autodrome in Portugal, little Rene Arnoux finally clinched the 1977 European Formula Two title in his Martini-Renault Mk. 22. He finished second in the October 1st penultimate round to put the coveted Championship safely out of reach of his few remaining rivals.

Formula Two review

After three rounds in what looks like being a tough year of Formula Two, there have been three different winners, in three different makes of car and using three different types of engine. The European championship was predictably being led by the little Frenchman Rene Arnoux in his Martini Renault but a number of very promising young newcomers to the FIA championship have emerged.

So little time

The newspapers understandably concentrated on Graham Hill in the aftermath of his fatal plane crash, but the tragedy also claimed the life of a man who might have proved even greater than his boss. David Tremayne remembers the brief but brilliant career of Tony Brise. Twenty five years on, the photograph still has a mesmeric power to make your eyes prickle, to evoke anger and poignant images of...

Notes on the cars in North America

Notes on the cars in Argentina

For most of the teams it was a case of carrying on where they left off at the end of 1976, with time for a few modifications and improvements; however, Lotus, Wolf (nee Williams), Ensign and Ligier all had brand new cars in South America. On the face of things the impression at the end of last season was that McLaren had ended the year on a crest of a wave, but in fact they did not win the last...

Jabouille narrowly heads French Renault invasion

Jean-Piere Jabouille snatched the European Formula Two title neatly from the grasp of Rene Arnoux in a tense final round confrontation at Hockenheim, Germany. The tall blonde Frenchman ended a six-year stay in Formula Two by stealing the Championship in the dying moments of a tough year. His spaceframe Elf 2 edged Arnoux's Martini out of the Championship by a single point, thanks to some...
