Modern times

The one result Bernie Ecclestone didn't want in Australia was the one he got — a Michael Schumacher win. And Maranello's decision to rely for the time being on last year's Ferrari seemed to be no handicap at all. (In fact, the flawlessly prepared F2001 s in Melbourne had plenty of 2002 about them, including some engine parts, and so perhaps should more accurately be called F2001.5s). There must...

The grand enterprise had finally come good, winning the drivers' and...

On and off, Mario Andretti has been trying to win Le Mans for more than 30 years. The place has hardly been kind to him, but he adores it. "I was always able to relax there," he says. "I enjoy the whole event. And a Le Mans victory is something I really feel is missing from my CV." The most versatile driver of them all, Andretti has won the World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR's...

Oulton Park National Meeting (April 8th)

The non-appearance of Jim Clark's Lotus 30 and Roy Salvadori's Cooper-Maserati robbed this B.A.R.C. meeting of much of its interest, for the duel between the 4.7-litre V8 Ford-engined Lotus and the 5-litre V8 Maserati-engined Cooper could have been quite something. As it was both cars were still being worked on at their respective factories. These two cars were intended for the main race of the...

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...

Bushman's Holiday

In the days when the Formula One stars had time off in the winter, many went down under for fun in the Tasman series. By David McKinney Formula One drivers these days have very little time to themselves between championships. Pre-season testing schedules and sponsor commitments allow few opportunities to escape from the pressure, even for a few weeks. In more relaxed times, though, many top...

Legends - Ken Tyrrell

"In a time when motor racing was conducted with integrity and passion, one unique character graced the stage of Formula One. His name was Ken Tyrrell." The narrator's opening words set the tone of a fine new film about a man whose achievements, it seems to me, have always been curiously under-documented.
