The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

Aussie rules

No-one defined the Australian racing driver better than Jonesy – acerbic wit but also self-deprecating humour, gritty determination and fairness in the heat of battle. He talks to Adam Cooper about his career of surprises "For me, racing was very much a natural progression," says Alan Jones. "I remember Dad used to let me take the odd Monday off school so I could go and watch him race. And as far...

Nigel Mansell's IndyCar diary - Columbia Tristar, W H Smith, £10.99 These four videos are based on the late-night ITV Nigel Mansell's lndyCar programmes, which in the beginning at least had a tendency to concentrate hysterically on "our Nige"; but the tapes include much other material, giving a better overview. Race photography is good, the pits-to-car radio conversations can be interesting, when...

On the limit, off message

Jody Scheckter is the most misunderstood and under-appreciated Champion. He's remembered mostly via a handful of snapshot moments, but now it's time, writes David Malsher, to pull his career into focus Ferrari had romanced him. He had joined as its number one; Gilles was its number two. All seemed in order... until South Africa, of all places. The third grand prix of the 1979 season witnessed...

The Daytona 24-hours

A dull start to the season Daytona, Fla., February 3rd-4th When the F.I.A. changed the regulations in the middle of last year governing sports prototype racing, it didn't give a fair chance to the two long-distance races early in the year at Daytona and Sebring to obtain a very good entry. So, as was expected, the 24-hours of Daytona was only a shadow of the battle between Ferrari, Ford and...

Formula One scene - A look back at the South American races

The 1978 Formula One season started off with a rush with two races in South America during the month of January and it says much for the serious intent of the regular teams that they were all there in force. The way the teams work all the year round, year after year, is nothing short of amazing, especially in the unsettled industrial atmosphere of the everyday world, where strikes and go-slow...

Grand Prix of South Africa

Stewart the Master Kyalami, Saturday, March 1st For the last seven years the South African Grand Prix has been held just before or just after New Year's Day, thereby breaking up the Formula One hibernation period. This year, however, the date has been changed so that, although the South African Grand Prix is still the first F.1 race of the year, the teams have no time on their hands before...

Daytona Six-Hours

Ferrari foremost again Daytona, Florida, February 6th. For a number of years a rather unnecessarily long 24-hour event, this year following the recent FIA ruling, the organisers of the Daytona event decided to shorten their race to a more compact six hours and consequently it did at least prove exciting in parts. This event remained as the second round of the World Manufacturers' Sports Car...
