Simon Taylor: Modern Times

Justin Wilson's signing for Minardi has finally brought into F1 a young British driver whose talent and speed were in little doubt, even before he dominated Formula 3000 in 2001. Having scratched around for a decent drive ever since he won the F3000 championship, he is now bringing more than £2 million of sponsorship to Paul Stoddart's little team, and will himself be driving virtually for...

Formula 2 review: Palmer closes on Gabbiani

After the first five rounds of this year's European Championship for Formula Two, it looked as if one man was going to walk away with the title. Beppe Gabbiani won at Silverstone, Thruxton, Nurburgring and Vallelunga and although he retired at Hockenheim, he was clearly the class of the field.

Young, gifted and black

Maurer was born in Germany, but only stood tall in Formula Two due to a British backbone. In five seasons its pretty cars came from nowhere, caused a storm, then were gone. By Gary Watkins.
