Spanish Grand Prix

The Spanish club sided with the constructors...

The French Grand Prix

Inconclusive Dijon-Prenois, July 5th The most important aspect of the 1981 French Grand Prix was that it saw the return of the Goodyear Tyre Company to Formula One. It will be recalled that they withdrew entirely last winter during the fracas between Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors and officialdom. Thanks to the support of Michelin, who agreed to supply everyone with tyres...

Spanish Grand Prix

Gilles Villeneuve's Ferrari 126CK heads the queue of cars battling for the lead of the Spanish Grand Prix at Jarama. He is persued by Jacques Laffite's Talbot-Matra JS17, John Watson's McLaren MP4, Carlos Reutemann's Williams FW07C and Elio de Angelis's Lotus 87. Below, Britain's Nigel Mansell recovered well from a slow start to bring his Lotus 87 home sixth. *   *   * John Watson drove his best...

The VSCC at Donington

The second Vintage SCC race meeting of 1981, counting towards the Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy Contest, will be held at Donington Park on May 10th, a Sunday, although Sunday racing would never have been countenanced at Brooklands. The first race will start at 2 p.m. and the programme will include the Shuttleworth and Nuffield Trophy Race after which the day's racing is named. This is...

Triumph from despair

1982 German Grand Prix Patrick Tambay (Ferrari 126C2) The 1982 German GP was by no means a classic. The enduring image is not of a great on-track battle, but of two drivers indulging in televised fisticuffs. But it was the race result that counted. From the depths, Ferrari scored a win that could not have been more timely. Ferrari's '82 season has been recounted many times. Suffice to say that...

Omnipotence Reigns!

It was predictable, really, that the Sauber Mercedes team would return to Dijon-Prenois in a determined mood. Last year's result was the one blot on the team's record sheet, and that was motive enough. Then, Sauber had the luxury of developing and testing the C11 right through June, when all the rival teams were preparing for Le Mans and recovering from the ordeal. The result? Mercedes' third 1-2...

The German Grand Prix

A popular win Hockenheimring, August 8th THE great concrete stadium that forms the major part of the Hockenheimring is not the most pleasant place even when the sun is shining so when the skies are grey, and threatening rain, it is truly forbidding. The only spark of imagination in the place as far as the drivers were concerned was the very fast Ost – Kurve at the far end of the circuit, which...

Different Class

While the Indy Racing League stumbles uncertainly into life, David Phillips contends that things have never looked better for the CART/PPG World Series How times change. For years critics of IndyCar have lambasted the PPG Indy Car Series for courting casual fans at temporary circuits while real fans and permanent race tracks withered on the vine. Last month, the new Indy Racing League, conceived...

Totally out to punch

For two races Brabham had lain in wait, desperate to reintroduce pitstops at the highest level of racing. Two bursts on half-tanks and fresh rubber would be, reckoned Gordon Murray, the quickest way to complete a race. Each time a Day-Glo stripe had been painted on the pit-road to guide the BT5Os of Piquet and Patrese into the correct space. Each time the Paramalat-liveried pressurised fuel tanks...

WEC: Hermanos Rodriguez 480kms

Schlesser takes all Even Mauro Baldi had to admit it. Jean Louis Schlesser deserved to win the 1989 World Championship for sports car drivers with a record of five wins in eight races, plus a second at Dijon and a third at Brands Hatch. His team, Sauber Mercedes, had a near perfect record of 19 starts (including Le Mans) and 17 finishes, and Mercedes' team director Jochen Neerpasch didn't mind...
