Benetton in the dock

Pre-race revelations by the FIA in Hockenheim blew the cloud created by the HA World Council meeting in Paris, a few days earlier, into a storm of controversy that cast doubt on the credibility of the Benetton team's achievements in the 1994 FIA World Championship. After imposing a two-race ban on Schumacher and upping Benetton's fine to $500,000 in the wake of the Silverstone black flag incident...

McLaren M8F

The car you can see from space Americans put a man on the moon, but they couldn't beat the road rockets built and driven by a bunch of laid-back Kiwis. Paul Fearnley finds out what the fuss wasn't about Kaboom! McLaren's Mephistophelian M8F fires up like the Battle of Jutland. Its eight litres of Chevy Big Block then settles down to a jackhammer tick-over that thuds into your solar plexus. '...

The DFX Files

One team's initiative provided the trigger for a spectacular Indycar success story - and a ground-breaking British designer was close to the project's heart By Gordon Kirby He would become a Formula 1 'visionary', the most coveted racing car designer of his generation — much like Adrian Newey today. In the 1980s John Barnard's MP4 series of carbon-fibre McLarens broke new ground in composite...

Bruno's rough cut

On the verge of his first outright World Rally Championship success, Bruno Thiry’s Escort came to a halt. Didier Auriol was handily placed to profit. The Ford team suffered the tantalising and bitterly disappointing loss of a maximum points score in the all-tarmac Tour of Corsica when, just as it seemed likely that Belgian crew Bruno Thiry and Stephane Prevot would romp home to a win, ahead of...

A true GT

The arrival of an Aston Martin in our lives was not a quiet occasion. A large truck disgorged AM V8 from its wheeled garage, the authoritative boom of its V8 scattering wild life even more effectively than the automatic fire from a neighbouring bird deterrent. The Virage V8 has the kind of sheer presence that makes the price tag in excess of £134,000 seem natural. Finished in a magnificent...

Who is

• 14 Tatore.9 lie is the mystery man of Formula One, yet behind the scenes he has the car of the leaders sign and wields ificant power. But... if it knows anything at all of him, the general public is more cognisant of events around him than it is of the personality of Flavio Briatore. Last year he made national newspaper headlines when at 3. I 7am on Wednesday February 10 a bomb blew away part...

Delirium Tremens

The deal of the decade? Footwork and Porsche are now counting the cost (and the embarrassment) of rash promises and wishful thinking. The laughter, it has to be said, cannot have been lost on the luminaries of either Porsche or Footwork, that day in April when we attended the presentation of the new Footwork FA12. It was a typical new F1 car launch, with the usual fanfares and hopes set against...

Roots revisited?

The RS2000 lives on in name, but does it do so in spirit? Remember The Tingler starring Vincent Price, who plays a mad doctor (of course)? Basically, as I recall, the plot is based on his obsession with the film's namesake, a creature which apparently lies dormant in everyone's spinal column until the host becomes excessively excited. At this point the Tingler is awakened from its hibernation,...
