Too free a spirit for Ferrari

He started only one GP, but had a better track record than the wider world appreciated. This is our tribute to the unconventional Jonathan Williams, who always knew there was more to life than racing. He passed away recently Writer: Adam Cooper Given that he lived a quiet and low-key life in Spain, Jonathan Williams was always bemused by the ability of a certain group of people to track him down...

Pantomime horse... Ferrari stumbled ahead of the 2014 British Grand Prix, but theatrical mishaps have long been part of the team’s fabric As Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen failed to survive first qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, it became apparent that Ferrari had screwed up. It wasn’t alone: Williams got into the same muddle about which tyres to mount during a rain-...

"Imagine being protested by your own team..."

In an extract from John Surtees’ new book, we look back at the 1963 and ’64 seasons. The Englishman might have become the first racer to take world titles on two wheels and four, but it wasn’t all plain sailing The option of going back to Italy had been hard to resist, but before this I took part in the six-race Tasman series, starting off the season well with two wins and a second place in the...

Formula One Trend of Design

Forced Induction A development that has been slow in getting under way in Formula One is that of forced induction. Up to 1950 anyone who was really serious about Grand Prix racing built engines with forced induction, the basic system used almost universally being that of the positively-driven supercharger. Until 1938 it was accepted that all right-minded designers of racing engines would force...

Ferrari Daytona

It wasn’t exactly the most fleet-looking Ferrari, but the Daytona was quick, and it proved a real heavy-hitter for years on track. Today, it’s still terrorising historic grids By Richard Heseltine The sense of disappointment was palpable. Somehow it appeared just so, well, predictable.

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.
