We don't smoke . . .

The Shell/Motor Sport F3 Championship, which was won in 1971 by Dave Walker, has been won for 1972 by Roger Williamson, Bernard Wheatcroft's prodigy, driving a GRD 372. He was duly awarded the Motor Sport prize consisting of a framed self-portrait by William Sibbons. Shell have now relinquished this Championship to John Player so the Motor Sport prize will not be awarded this year.

Notes on the cars at Watkins Glen

The 31 cars in the superb Kendall Tech Centre at Watkins Glen included all 30 that had been resident at Mosport Park plus the Surtees TS14. Since Monza some work had been done to improve the fuel system and the brakes, and although Surtees did most of practice in it and Hailwoed tried it briefly, it was finally raced by Schenken who was making his last appearance for the team. All the T cars, at...

Seconds out

British F3, Crystal Palace, 1970 It was the penultimate round of the Motor Sport/Shell F3 series and Dave Walker’s win should have been headline news. Should, but wasn’t… Writer Simon Arron, illustrator Guy Allen The end was nigh for Formula 3’s 1-litre era – and this was a fitting reminder of just how good the racing could be.

Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Modern Times

Today, if you're an F1 driver, that's what you do. There's no mom in your life for any other motorsport. As well as 17 races, there's all that testing: once the FIA's November ban is over, most teams move straight into a hectic programme. McLaren are hard at it in Spain from Monday 4 December. Plus jetting from country to country to remind the fans of the virtues of your sponsor's products....

Lunch With... Emerson Fittipaldi

South African Grand Prix

First win for a Yardley McLaren Kyalami, March 4th. Relieved of its usual status of being the first World Championship event of the year, the South African event nevertheless proved to be a great success.
