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...

Reflections on the only man to win Formula 1 titles as both driver and constructor, by a Motor Sport contributor who knew him well Writer Doug Nye On hearing of Sir Jack Brabham’s recent death – at the age of 88 – Australian enthusiast Alec Hawkins sat down at a computer keyboard and submitted the following to one of the internet motor racing forums. I believe his words speak for a generation of...

Tyrrell 006

Profile Stubby, light and a bit twitchy, this classic British grand prix car propelled Sir Jackie Stewart to his third and final Formula 1 world championship. The car's career, however, didn't end there Words: Paul Fearnley. Photography: Peter Spinney/LAT Nursing a cold and unhappy with his Tyrrell, Jackie Stewart found himself sixth on the grid for the 1973 Italian GP. Then, having been engine...

The price of racing

As an observer at the US Grand Prix where François Cevert lost his life, I can confirm Denny Gioia’s memory of the helmetless driver. I was at the head of the pitlane when I saw Jackie Stewart entering, and my first thought was how remarkable it was to see him, of all people, driving hatless. He was often insultingly referred to as ‘Granny’ Stewart for his emphasis on safety, and the incident...

Recent racing results

Last month we reported that Denny Hulme had won the first round of the Can-Am series with the latest McLaren M20, but only after a scare from Mark Donohue's turbo-charged Porsche 917/10. On July 9th the second round of the series was held and this time the Penske Porsche did win but with George Follmer driving and not Donohue who had crashed and injured his knee in unofficial practising. Hulme...

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

A tidy prophet

The shiny decals of Rondel Racing might have caused a few sniggers in F2 paddocks 40 years ago, but Ron Dennis and Neil Trundle set new standards in team image – and they had the last laugh in the years to comeBy Alan Henry Forty years ago on April 17, Palm Sunday, the complexion of European motor racing took the first step towards changing forever. Two pale blue Brabham BT36 Formula 2 cars...

Daytona 24-Hours

PORSCHE VICTORY.—On the first lap of the Daytona 24-Hours, the two JW Automotive Porsche 917s sweep off the banking (left) with Andretti's Ferrari 512S only inches behind. Siffert's car (leading) lost a lot of time in the pits, leaving an unchallenged win to Kinnunen and Rodriguez (right) with the first victory for the new Gulf/Porsche alliance. PEDRO RODRIGUEZ made a spectacular return to the JW...
