Notes on the cars at Monza

Before the event it looked as though the Monza paddock was going to be full of interesting mechanical things but they did not materialise and instead it was full of interesting rumours and intrigues in shady corners. The new Ferrari 312B3 had been on test but was not considered to be ready for racing so it was never seen and the team used their well-proven B2 version's of the flat-12 cylinder...

Rome G.P. (October 8th)

Rome G.P. (October 8th) THE Formula Two season closed for the year with the final round of the European F.2 Trophy held at the Vallelunga circuit some 25 miles north of Rome. The majority of the graded drivers decided to stay over in the Americas as Rome fell between the U.S. and Mexican G.P.s and only Graham Hill and Jo Siffert returned to Europe to mix it with eighteen of the non-graded boys....

The Grand Prix scene

Now that the dust has settled after two World Championship Grand Prix races and five non-championship Formula One races (this is being written and printed just before the Monaco GP), it might be as well to take stock of the situation. The remarkable thing about 1971 so far is that we have had five Formula One events not part of the World Championship series, and these have allowed new drivers to...

The Austrian Grand Prix

Reutemann all the way Osterreichring, Knittelfeld, August 18th There were quite a lot of changes to the Grand Prix scene in the lower echelons, caused by accident, changes of heart, re-organisations, general muddle and openings for newcomers. With Mike Hailwood still in hospital following his Nurburgring accident the Yardley McLaren team rebuilt the works original spare car, number M23/4, painted...

XXV Monaco Grand Prix

A well deserved victory Monte Carlo, May 7th. It is now just one whole year since the present Grand Prix Formula really got under way, for this time last year the Monaco Grand Prix saw the first big outing of the 3-litre Formula One cars and while 1966 saw some ups and downs 1967 is showing terrific progress. Although this year's Monaco G.P. was the first Championship event in Europe it was not...

Three Formula Two Races

Rouen (July 9th) Most of the star Grand Prix drivers were taking part in this race, except for Gurney who does not approve of top league drivers playing in a lesser league, so that Ferrari's first sortie with his new car and new driver had little chance of shining. This was Jonathan Williams' first Formula Two race in any car, so he was left rather breathless by Clark, Hill, Stewart, Brabham,...

Le Mans Practice

A few years ago the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, who organise the Le Mans 24 hour race, realized that preparation for the annual event was not something that happened a day or two before the race, but was a serious long-term programme of experimentation and testing. To assist the serious competitors a Test Weekend was inaugurated in the spring-time in order that .experimental work could be...

The Grand Prix of France

A shake-up for Formula One Castellet, July 1st. As the French started their summer holiday season and headed for the Mediterranean coast and the beaches, the Grand Prix circus headed for the Mediterranean coast and the Paul Ricard circuit, and the only time the two parties came together was on the crowded Autoroute going south and on the terribly slow road from Aix-en-Provence to Toulon, off...

Further thoughts on Formula 2

In the March Motor Sport I looked at the new Formula 2 from a mechanical standpoint and it all seemed most interesting and clear cut, but now I am not so sure. I rather rashly suggested that if you had sufficient money you could buy a Brabham chassis, a Cosworth 16-valve engine and a Hewland gearbox and go Formula 2 racing. As things are turning out it is not as simple as that for the...

BRM's last front-runner

The small, slightly stooped, white-haired Frenchman has a distant look in his eyes, almost three decades later, but smiles at the memory. "I remember that although that was one of the longest grands prix, to me it felt like quarter of an hour, because I was concentrating to hard. It was quite difficult for me to be in front, and two or three times I risked my car overtaking people." Parnell: "I...
