Formula Two Review

Rouen, June 28th It seemed almost too good to be true when Hubert Hahne finally broke BMW's Formula Two duck at Hockenheim on June 14, but better was to come a fortnight later at Rouen-les-Essarts. Once again a BMW won, but this time the victory was somehow more convincing, for although the race was a slipstreamer the quality of the entry was much higher. The winner was Jo Siffert, who, like...

The Argentine Grand Prix

Buenos Aires, January 13th For the third consecutive year, the World Championship series started in sun-soaked Argentina, all the regular Grand Prix teams air-freighting their cars out to this event and then keeping them in South America until after the two Brazilian Formula One races. Although the first race of the new season took place barely three months after the last race of the old, there...

Notes on the new cars at Barcelona

In the aftermath of Jo Siffert's tragic accident at Brands Hatch in 1971 came a resolution to make Grand Prix cars safer against fire risk, particularly in the case of side impacts. This culminated in regulations being drawn up by the CSI which were to finally come into effect at the 1973 Spanish Grand Prix. The regulations required deformable side structures and the text of the actual rules was...

Shaken, stirred & on the rocks

Ferrari wasn't the only Italian team in disarray in 1973: Martini-backed Tecno, in only its second season, had two different cars — made by two different firms — on the go. Gary Watkins explains No doubt there were occasions when Derek Bell secretly wished for an engine failure and an early bath. Perhaps in the middle of a dark, dank night at Le Mans, his name languishing down the order after...

F1 1997: the same old story?

For the second time in four seasons, a final race accident decided the world title. Nigel Roebuck looks back through Grand Prix history and asks, where have all the morals gone? It ended, alas, in controversy, as we have come to expect of World Championship deciders in the contemporary era. Towards the end of the European Grand Prix at Jerez, Jacques Villeneuve aimed his Williams-Renault inside...

One great Argentinian...

SIR, It was excellent to see your article about Carlos Reutemann in your August edition. While I was growing up, that Argentine was a constant example of a fighter for me and for all the people of my country. The fortunes of a driver's career depend on being in the right team at the right time. And, in 1979, tole' moved to Lotus from Ferrari. That year the red cars won the title... Thank you so...

Blue murder and red mist

Matra had already won Le Mans – now it wanted more. Ferrari was facing a classic duel to remember – especially as it would be their last in sports car racing. The year: 1973 By Paul Fearnley Twelve outings, 12 victories: Ferrari’s most successful sports car campaign had run perfectly under the calming, multilingual tutelage of Peter Schetty. This 30-year-old, Basle-born economics and political...

F2 review: Fittipaldi finds form

After a rather shaky start to the F2 season, Lotus scored two wins on the trot in May and both were provided by Gold Leaf Team Lotus' F1 team-leader Emerson Fittipaldi driving his Team Bardahl-entered car. At Jarama victory was handed to him on a plate when Tim Schenken's Rondel Racing Brabham BT36 retired with loss of oil pressure when there were only four of the 60 laps left to run, but a...

Model Pupil François Cevert

The debonair Frenchman learned quickly as Jackie Stewart's understudy and was perfectly placed to become an F1 team leader. At Watkins Glen 40 years ago, however, fate intervened Jackie Stewart was never going to be part of the Tyrrell team in 1974, having given Ken ample notice of his intention to retire at the end of ’73, but he nonetheless remained very much a member of the family, with an...
