Reflections with Nigel Roebuck

The Bianchi accident, Montjuich Park 1975, Vettel and Alonso In the hours following Jules Bianchi’s accident, several moments and conversations came back to me, one of them with Martin Brundle at Suzuka in 1995, in which he recalled the Japanese Grand Prix a year earlier. In appalling conditions – worse even than those at this year’s race – Brundle’s McLaren flew off the road at the Dunlop Curve...

Warring team-mates, matters acoustic, Senna and Ferrari When Jochen Rindt’s Lotus crashed massively at Montjuich in 1969, he was extraordinarily fortunate to escape with relatively light injuries. This was the time of the ludicrous ‘tall’ wings, and the flimsy supports on Rindt’s car simply collapsed, as they had – a few minutes earlier, at the same spot – on the sister car of Graham Hill, the...

“We haven’t always seen eye to eye, have we?”

David Coulthard wasn’t pulling any punches when he met with our writer, but then the Scot has had to fight for recognition throughout his career. Yet he leaves Formula 1 happy with his achievements and with his integrity intactBy Alan Henry It’s April 1, 2001. The scene is Interlagos, that bruising and buffeting 2.67-mile ribbon of careworn asphalt which has been such an essential part of the...

Spectacle trumps soundWizards of OzAndretti's concorde offer Back in the day it was my invariable habit, for final qualifying at Monte Carlo, to position myself immediately behind the guardrail somewhere close to the left-right entry to the swimming pool area. Then defined by solid masonry rather than white lines, it was a place that rewarded the bravest, as well as the most deft, and in 1985 I...

>> The Red Bull dynamic >> F1's nice guys lose out >> Changing times As the 1982 Swiss Grand Prix (at Dijon…) entered its final minutes, Williams team manager Peter Collins started getting edgy. Keke Rosberg’s Cosworth-powered FW08 was catching Alain Prost’s slowing Renault, but the laps were running out and it was going to be close. As well as that, there appeared the...

Nigel Roebuck

In the slipstream of his final Grand Prix season, Mark Webber sat down to discuss Formula 1 politics, Sebastian Vettel, Porsche, the idiocy of DRS and much else besides... A catch-up with Mark Webber over lunch in a Buckinghamshire pub, near the delightful house in which he and his partner Ann have lived these many years. It was perhaps no more than inevitable that we should begin by talking...

What's New in F1 2012

New faces, new cars and new tracks will all play their part in the Grand Prix season ahead. As for the car regs, the devil – as usual – will be in the detail Sebastian has improved and is stronger than ever”, Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz recently told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. “He has prepared during the winter break like he’s never done before.” Not great news if you’re Mark...

Räikkönen rejoins reds

...but what will the Finn’s return mean for Ferrari? Kimi Räikkönen is far from the first Ferrari driver to make a return trip to Maranello – the list includes such as José Froilán González, Alberto Ascari, Mike Hawthorn, Maurice Trintignant, Pedro Rodriguez, Jacky Ickx, Mario Andretti, Clay Regazzoni and Gerhard Berger. He is, however, the first to return after being paid a huge sum to walk...

Lunch with . . . David Coulthard

From catching Senna's eye at Williams, to crossing swords with Schumacher, to helping Red Bull earn its wings, DC's F1 achievements go far beyond the statistics By Simon Taylor Lets deal with the statistics first. David Coulthard's 13 Formula 1 victories never won him the world title, but he was runner-up in 2001, and took third place in the table no fewer than four times. In his 247 Grands Prix...
