My only Grand Prix

1989 Monaco Pierre-Henri Raphanel How did you end up at Coloni for 1989? I had money from La Cinq TV channel, as well as a manager for the first time. I chose to go to Coloni because Christian Vanderpleyn and Michael Costa were moving there from AGS. It was a small team but it looked a good opportunity. Is it true that you almost didn't drive for the team at Monaco? My sponsor hadn't paid and a...

For Roberto the racing driver, life has yet to scale such happy peaks, even though — by rights — it ought to have done a long time ago. The Roberto in question was born into the Moreno family 28 years ago, and was offered a Formula One chance by Lotus as long ago as 1982, when an...

Jean-Francois Mosnier One image of Jean-Francois Mosnier will always stick in my mind. It was April 1989, at Silverstone, the opening round of the European F3000 Championship. Mosnier's Lola Motorsport team had suffered a torrid winter. Indeed, it was no longer the works Lola team, but that didn't matter to Mosnier.

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...
