A two-horse race?

Last year it was Mansell chasing Senna. Will it be the other way round in 1992? Quintessentially, 1991 was a two-horse race, with Ayrton Senna winning seven Grands Prix to Nigel Mansell's five, Patrese supporting his team-mate with a brace of victories, and Berger and Piquet picking up but a win apiece. Who can forget the way in which the Brazilian won four straight victories as the season opened...

A weekend to be endured

Michael Schumacher, Benetton and Ford continued their domination in Monte-Carlo, but for everyone else the weekend couldn't finish soon enough.

A year ago you would not have put a dollar on that in the casino at the Café de Paris in Monaco. Now it barely raises a murmur (least of all...

Obituary - Dave Metcalfe

There are times when our sport can be an insular business, many participants rarely focusing beyond the boundaries of their own particular discipline. Dave Metcalfe was different.

Oliver's army

The Arrows F1 team is 20 years old and has yet to win a race. Is founder Jackie Oliver downhearted? Adam Cooper found out When Damon Hill’s Arrows A18 faltered on the last lap of the 1997 Hungarian Grand Prix, he lost the chance of proving that he could win in something other than a Williams.

Lord Luca

Shortly after the Portuguese Grand Prix, several F1 teams stayed on to conduct some serious testing. Some of them used their sojourn in Portugal to evaluate a few F1 rookies. One of these was European F3000 series leader — and soon to be champion — Luca Badoer, who was allowed 25 or so laps in one of Scuderia Italia's Dallara-Ferraris. It was one of only two glitches in Badoer's season. In the...
