Around and about

Scheckter Stateside Since Jody Scheckter's appearance in the Race of Champions in March very little has been seen of the fast-rising South African star on the European scene.

Lola: Broadley brushstrokes

Lunch with... Alan Jones

Williams’ favourite son on dodgy campers, nightmare bosses and gelling with Frank and Patrick. By Simon Taylor Scroll down the roster of drivers who won a single World Championship – names like James Hunt and Jody Scheckter, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill – and for each there’s a different reason why they never took a second title.
