Grit in the oyster

Nigel Mansell became a pearl at Williams. But as Damien Smith explains his four full seasons at Lotus provided the grit in the oyster... Key scenes. Act One: first Formula One test. He snaps up the chance to take part in a Lotus young-driver try-out at Paul Ricard — just weeks after breaking his back in an Oulton Park F3 shunt. Popping painkillers like sweets, he tells the team he is perfectly...

Downhill all the way

The BRM P201's first grand prix flattered to deceive: it was too little too late. Paul Fearnley tells the story and drives a survivor As his wheezy, knock-kneed steed cantered along Kyalami's main straight at almost 150mph — well, it was downhill! — the 'Cowangie Kid' had plenty of time to mull over his future. Larry Perkins, for it was he, desperately wanted to stay in Formula One — but no...

Fatal friction

Overshadowed as Villeneuve’s team-mate, Didier Pironi was turning into a great driver. But his mind games against Gilles and the tragic outcome did not make him popular… Twenty-five years have passed since the death of Gilles Villeneuve, the most beloved racing driver of his generation, and many words have lately been devoted to a man without whom, for many, motor racing has never been quite the...

The Italian Grand Prix

An Anglo-Italian victory Monza, September 11th Despite annual rumours that the race must be moved eventually owing to various local objections, legal sanctions or whatever, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza continues to be the final race in the European Formula One season. Over the years we have seen the Milanese circuits change and evolve in many ways, going from road circuit to a combination of...

Legend Jo Ramirez

In the contemporary F1 Paddock, folk without enemies are hard to find. It's a hard-nosed environment which can have a desensitising effect over the years. While not an absolute rule of thumb, those who thrive tend to be... self-centred, let's say. There remain, though, some who are there because they love motor racing. Most will never get rich, but they are in for the long haul because they...

The years of the Rat

Niki Lauda is nothing if not a fighter. As he reaches 60, he talks to Motor Sport about some of his biggest battles in racing and in business It comes to us all, I suppose, but the notion of Niki Lauda celebrating his 60th birthday on February 22 seems just a touch difficult to believe. Three times World Champion, the Austrian ace – to use the apt title of his autobiography – has been To Hell and...

Racing round-up

Mallory Park, March 14th Formula Two racing returned to Mallory Park, for the first time in almost four years, with a vengeance in the middle of the month despite the entry list dwindling from over 40 hopefuls down to the 19 starters on the grid. As only twenty were going to be allowed to start it didn't matter much anyway and though some F2 names were missing the field was certainly...

15th Grand Prix of the United States

Watkins Glen, U.S.A., October 7th The most arduous year of racing in the history of the World Championship came to an end at New York State's Watkins Glen track last month. This was the fifteenth and final round of the series which had started back in Argentina in January. The season ended on a note of tragedy with the death of Francois Cevert in practice, while the race provided Ronnie Peterson...

1970s

New ideas proliferate on track but the driver toll continues. Tyrrell is blue riband, Lotus goes black and gold and Hunt hits his purple patchBy Alan Henry There was a certain contradictory symbolism about Jack Brabham winning the opening round of 1970, the South African Grand Prix at Kyalami. It was as if the 44-year-old Aussie’s victory run in the Brabham BT33 had been the final full-stop which...

Goodwood Festival of Speed: Pictorial Review

The sight and sound of the sole surviving V16 Auto Union mountain climb car, a great silver fish of a machine which slithered and growled under expert control, twin rear wheels scrabbling for grip in the omni-present rain, was as unforgettable to the 100,000 people who watched, entranced, at the fifth Goodwood Festival of Speed, as it was to its driver, Hans-Joachim Stuck. As if the clock was...
