Behind the scenes

Champion, the Sparking Leaders Laurie Hands, the Champion Sparking Plug Company's UK Chief Engineer and Competitions Manager, can recall only one failure of his plugs in international motor racing this season, one plug in the Gulf-Mirage in the Monza 1,000 kms. It is a history of reliability which reflects the quietness with which Champion's Racing Division goes about its business; tyre...

The Dutch Grand Prix

James Hunt scored a fine win in the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort in his Hesketh 308. Hunt (top left), can be seen on the winner's rostrum, laughingly knocking the Goodyear cap off third placeman Clay Regazzoni's head after the Swiss had failed to remove it during the playing of the British National Anthem. Right, Hunt (No. 24) leads Niki Lauda's second place Ferrari 312T (No. 12) just before...

Compound fractures

The tyre battle in 1997 is but the latest of a war that's been raging since the '50s. Nigel Roebuck looks at the bald facts At the 1977 Japanese Grand Prix, one kazuyoshi hoshino qualified 11th. There is no particular reason why this fact should detain us, save that Hoshino's car, a locally built Kojima with Cosworth DFV power, was running on Bridgestone tyres. It was a one-off event for the...

Ferrari's English connections

"The great thing about Ferrari," explained Harvey Postlethwaite, "is that they not only have a tremendously quick response time, but they will try anything. You haven't even the faintest idea of how many experimental things are tried and discarded without ever seeing the public light of day. De Dion suspensions, turbochargers . . . you've no idea!" The Ferrari team's English chief of Formula...

Letter from South America

Dear D.S.J. When I arrived in Argentina I began thinking about the old saying which goes "the Good Lord smiles on the righteous". In South Africa (where you didn't come), it poured with rain; in Brazil (where you didn't come again), it poured with rain. In Long Beach (where you did come), we were bathed in sunshine. Surely, I thought, it won't rain in Argentina. Well, it did. The two practice...

Formula One scene - A look back at the South American races

The 1978 Formula One season started off with a rush with two races in South America during the month of January and it says much for the serious intent of the regular teams that they were all there in force. The way the teams work all the year round, year after year, is nothing short of amazing, especially in the unsettled industrial atmosphere of the everyday world, where strikes and go-slow...

My greatest race - Alan Jones

United States GP (East), Watkins Glen, October 5th 1980 The world title was in the bag, the pressure was off… but so was his Williams at the first corner of the US GP. The recovery which followed was pure Alan Jones From start to finish, the 1980 season was an unbelievable one for me. It was an amazing year because I won my world championship with Williams, but it also stands out as the season in...

Damien Smith's Off the line

The spirit of speed I only saw Gilles Villeneuve race once, and it wasn't exactly his finest performance: British Grand Prix, 1981.  I was six. He was out early on after losing his Ferrari 126CK at Woodcote and ending up in the catch fencing after being collected square by the closely following Williams of Alan Jones. That day I was caught up with the rest of the partisan crowd in the fervour...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club Scene Rondel F2 Car Announced Several months ago in this column we announced the news that the go-ahead Formula Two team, Rondel Racing, had formed an alliance with Denys Dobbie and that with his backing they would construct and race their own Formula Two car and, possibly, also a Formula One.

Emerson Fittipaldi: Young gun, old master

In 1972, he became the youngest F1 champion. He became the third-oldest Indy 500 winner 21 years later. In between he had four years out of the cockpit. Emerson Fittipaldi, first of the great Brazilian racers, talks to Nigel Roebuck Emerson Fittipaldi's language dates him, reminding you of a time in motor-racing more violent and dangerous, yet also gentler, less hard-nosed. 'Dice', for example,...
