Podcast: Perry McCarthy on driving for Andrea Moda in 1992 Perry McCarthy: “It was wonderful to have reached Formula 1, but then, of course, it was only a matter of time before you realised ‘This is not very good at all’. Not only were we slow, but we were actually dangerous.” Simon Arron: “Didn’t the steering seize in the middle of Eau Rouge?” PM: “By the time I got to Belgium I had done a...

Modern Times

If a litre of optimism is worth a second a lap, a lot of lap records will be broken this year. As each Formula One team has launched its new car to the press we've been subjected to buckets of fine words and dry ice. And the more there is to prove, the more theatrical the launch - none more so than for this season's completely new team, British American Racing. Actually, these days no team is...

Modern Times

While Ferrari scored a predicted 1-2 at Silverstone, helped no end by the superiority of Bridgestone's wet-weather tyres over Michelin's, the chief excitement of the meeting surrounded the financial fate of the Arrows team. Non-payment of £3.2 million-worth of bills due to Cosworth for the team's engines meant that, on Niki Lauda's orders, the vital electronic control units needed to run at...

Delirium Tremens

29,000 feet going up; freefall coming down Scaling the nursery slopes of the Everest of F1 is the most arduous task new teams can face, but getting even that far is no guarantee of further progress or a safe downward journey If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, so the old expression has it. But how do you get into the kitchen in the first place, especially when it's the one...

Heroic GP failures

They probably seemed a good idea at the time but there have been some diabolically dreadful GP cars, recalls Shaun Campbell To motor racing historians the 1951 British Grand Prix was a watershed event. It was the first World Championship Grand Prix win for Ferrari which is an important enough reason in itself but it also marked the end of Alfa Romeo's postwar dominance of this class of racing,...

The go-to guy

F1, Champ Car, GTs, historics - if you need a driver in a hurry, Roberto Moreno has always been ready to give it everything. And he's still got the fire...By Rob Widdows In America they called him 'supersub'. Super he may be, but he is so much more than a substitute. When Roberto Pupo Moreno left his home in Brazil he was still a teenager and had never raced a car. His mother promised to keep his...

Advantage Badoer

The European F3000 Championship is looking more open than it has done for many seasons. Halfway through what should be a 10-race schedule, only nine points separated the top six in the championship, and series leader Luca Badoer, as consistent as he is fleet, has only clocked up 22 points, despite finishing every race to date in the top six. It is quite feasible, if unlikely, therefore, that the...

The worst car I ever drove

Perry McCarthy Andrea Moda-Judd S192 Shaun Campbell looks into life at the wrong end of the grid. Here Perry McCarthy recalls the nightmare machine that put an end to his short-lived Formula One career At first, Perry McCarthy is reluctant to describe the 1992 Andrea Moda as the worst car he has ever driven.

Her March 75 1 was holding down sixth place in the Spanish GP at Montjuich Park when the race was stopped, Rolf Stommelen's Embassy-Hill having left the track...

Battle of the flexes

That this talented Brazilian should end up driving so many truly Dreadful Formula one cars remains a mystery. Gary Watkins asks him how it feels to be spoiled for quantity, if not quality. A couple of years ago Roberto Moreno was asked to be the subject of a Worst Car I Ever Drove for Motor Sport. He refused. The reason? He wasn't sure if he had yet driven his worst racing car. For a driver known...
