There but for fortune

Just as it finally seemed within his reach, a broken titanium component crushed Peter Revson's F1 dream Peter Jeffrey Revlon Revson had it all. Good looks, breeding, an attractive personality and an ability to drive race cars fast. In 1973 he won two Grands Prix races for McLaren, in one of them defeating the best opposition fair and square. After a struggle against his silver spoon background,...

POSTCARD FROM AMERICA

Pat on the comeback The 1990s have seen IndyCar racing dominated by two men and their teams: Roger Penske and Carl Haas. Together, Marlboro Penske and Newman/ Haas Racing have won 50 races, including three Indianapolis 500s, and three PPG championships. It was not always so. Throughout the 1980s a third man matched Penske and Haas in terms of on-track success and off-track influence: Pat Patrick...

Hometown hero

In this The Age of the Celebrity, Mario Andretti is that rarest of public figures: a bona fide hero. For he is more than the 1978 world champion, a four time national champion and the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500 and an F1 race, not to mention the oldest to win an IndyCar race (nor that his exploits have been chronicled by MOTOR SPORT for nearly half its 70 years!): he...

Newman/Haas: the final scene?

It’s been a long-running and heroic story, but the ‘Williams of IndyCar’ has taken its last bow, leaving a gap in US pitlanes The sad news came on December 1, 2011 that Newman/Haas Racing would not compete in IndyCar in 2012. Like Williams in Formula 1, Newman/Haas in 2011 was a pale shadow of its glory days when it set the standard that all Indycar teams wanted to match – including Team Penske...

Lunch with... Patrick Head

Aged 12 he shared a whisky with Mike Hawthorn and in 2012 he is leaving Formula 1. In between there is a career of outstanding achievement By Simon Taylor Part one, before the goldrush Some big names in Formula 1 can be unrewarding to interview. For understandable reasons, they are guarded in the presence of a journalist, and swathe what they do say in the bubble-wrap of polite PR-speak. Patrick...

In the hot seat

"It was a partnership that would be impossible today"

Ken Tyrrell was much more than just my team boss – he was a lifelong friend too, and one whom I never tire of talking about, as I recently told Nigel Roebuck When we speak of legendary partnerships in motor racing, perhaps the one that would spring first to most minds is that of Colin Chapman and Jim Clark: throughout his eight-year Formula 1 career Jimmy never raced other than a Lotus, after all...
