Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far. Tragically, an awful shadow was cast when Denis Welch lost his life after his Lotus 18 overturned in the HGPCA Pre-61 race on Sunday. Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

Andy Granatelli

1923-2013 He was larger than life in the term’s truest sense, a classic American salesman and huckster who made his fortune selling fuel additive STP to the masses. He was also a successful Indycar team owner, dominating most of the 1967 Indy 500 with Parnelli Jones (in the STP Paxton turbine) and finally winning the race in ’69 with Mario Andretti. Andy Granatelli, 90, passed away two days...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old car matters The 1902 Renault For many years now, motor racing historians who are accustomed to regarding Gerald Rose's Record of Motor Racing as an impeccable source of information for the period up to 1908 have been puzzled by an obvious anomaly contained in it with regard to the Renault racing voiture légère of 1902. Writing of the car which won the Paris-Vienna race,...

FIA acts to stop racism

The FIA is to launch an anti-racism scheme after Spanish fans taunted Lewis Hamilton in testing at Barcelona. In the wake of the anti-McLaren feeling stirred up by the country’s media, some fans chose to express their support for Fernando Alonso by barracking McLaren from the grandstand opposite the pits. The chanting extended to racial insults targeted directly at Hamilton. Policemen were sent...

Modern times

Formula One is more comfortable expressing optimism about the future than nostalgia about the past It prefers looking ahead to looking back. No sooner had the chequered flag at Suzuka signalled the end of the 2001 season than the circus was washing its hands of the old year with a palpable sense of relief. Now the racing weeklies are full of stories about Felipe Massa, the 20year-old Brazilian...

IX Gran Premio Bari

A Maserati benefit Motor racing through the streets of a town is a thing that is fast dying out, which is a very great pity, for somehow true road racing is connected with everyday roads with all the attendant hazards of kerbs, tramlines, walls, lamp-posts and trees. The continual modifying of many circuits until such things have completely disappeared so that almost anyone can race with very...

Reflections – Title decider had shades of Hawthorn vs Moss – Why standard engines have no place in F1 If the rain at Interlagos had kept from suddenly worsening for another half-minute or less, Sebastian Vettel and, more importantly, Lewis Hamilton would never have caught Timo Glock on the last lap, and Felipe Massa would be the World Champion of 2008.

2008: Lewis Hamilton

"Lewis broke all the records when he arrived in Formula 1 in 2007,” says the managing director of McLaren Jonathan Neale. “People were advising us that he should come in and do a year in the test team before getting into the race car.
