“All your life you follow a dream to drive an F1 car – and then you have this chance...”

What’s it like to step up from a junior racing car to your very first test in Formula 1? It’s an experience that cannot be forgotten – by even the most experienced Grand Prix driver By Alistair Weaver The technicians here have a catchphrase that they recite constantly: “it is loud, it is normal, it is Formula 1”. An expression that might sound obvious from the grandstand or the comfort of your...

Modern times

Now's the time for people who noticed Fernando Alonso's prowess in his first grand prix, in Australia with Minardi back in 2001, to say they told us so. He was 19 then, and he qualified an impressive 19th ahead of a Jaguar, a Prost and the other Minardi, finishing a sturdy 12th in front of the troubled Benettons. With Juan Pablo Montoya and Kimi Raikkonen both making their F1 debuts the same day...

Events of the month

Wales Rally GB Not so much an event of the month, this, as one of the finest of 2013. Its success, though, was founded on the clamour surrounding the stages rather than anything that happened within. A move to rallying's North and Mid-Welsh heartland generated a bumper crowd and a vibrant atmosphere, with numbers being such that spectators occasionally had to be turned away. World champion...

John Surtees

Guest column Motorcycle and F1 World Champion Surtees runs Britain's A1 GP team. He tells Motor Sport about his hopes for a new British hero and how champions don't just happen... In some ways running the British A1 GP team is a better job than running my own team was, because I don't have to worry where the money is coming from. Of course, decisions aren't so fast; it's now a team decision, but...

A race to honour Dan

Monday night in Milton Keynes. Cold, dark, neon lights and roundabouts as far as the eye can see. Doesn’t sound too promising, does it? But it was an uplifting night. The motor racing community had come together to remember a friend. Last summer I spoke at length to Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon. I liked him very much, found him to be open, thoughtful and honest. Along with a great many others, I...

Modern times

The 2003 Formula One season began on November 26, 2002 — not racing, you understand, but the endless grind of testing. Just 44 days after the last engine was shut off in the Suzuka paddock, the circus was up and running at Barcelona and Valencia. Over the next few days every F1 team ran at one or other of the Spanish circuits except Jordan, which is busy trying to replace its lost Deutsche Post...

Davidson for LM Peugeot squad

Former Super Aguri grand prix driver Anthony Davidson will race for Peugeot in this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours. The 30-year-old has signed up for a short programme of races with the French team including the Sebring 12 Hours, the Spa 1000Kms, Le Mans and, most likely, the Silverstone 1000Kms in September. At Le Mans Davidson will share his Peugeot 908 HDi with 2009 winners Alex Wurz and Marc Gené...

The continued dominance of Red Bull, the greatness of Sebastian Vettel... and the major teams’ unfathomable reluctance to capitalise on Nico Hülkenberg’s gifts As the Grands Prix roll by, I think back to a sunny afternoon in the Daytona paddock in January, and a conversation with Anthony Davidson about the Formula 1 season to come. I began by asking whom he tipped for the 2013 World Championship...

Ginther, Surtees, Button?

Honda re-enters F1 as a constructor.  Now Button and Barichello have to recreate the glory years of the '60s. Honda will enter Formula One as a constructor next season, for the first time since 1968. The Japanese car giant has taken over the BAR team, which has failed to score a win since it came into F1 with Jacques Villeneuve in 1999. Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello, already signed by BAR...
