Notes on the Cars at Zolder and Imola

With the Belgian GP and the San Marino GP on successive weekends (April 29th and May 6th) there was precious little time for anyone to return to base between the races so most of the teams set off for Belgium with sufficient equipment for the two weeks. Europe based teams like Ferrari were at a big advantage and the Maranello team were back home by Monday lunch-time after the Belgian race the...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio de Janeiro, March 25th In sharp contrast to previous years, the Formula 1 "close season" has been very much longer this winter, stretching from Kyalami in mid-October 1983 until the Brazilian Grand Prix opened the 1984 season on March 25th. In the past many teams have spent time moaning that the break is far too short, giving them nowhere near sufficient time to complete development...

The Grand Prix

A non-(championship) event As the 1984 Grand Prix season for the World Championships was not due to start until March 25th with the Brazilian GP, and all the important teams were ready and raring to go by the end of January, the FOCA supreme organised a non-championship race to give them a pre-season try-out. Unfortunately the only country prepared to take this non-event was behind the Iron...

Blackballed at the Brickyard

When the CART establishment discovered that Team Lotus was building another Indycar, the reaction was far from positive. Gordon Cruickshank describes the car that became an outlaw It's tough being a new kid on the block, especially if you come from somewhere far away. That's what Lotus found when Colin Chapman decided to tackle Indianapolis. He was doing things a different way, and that didn't...

Letters:

Buck up, Lotus! Sir, I would like to address this letter to Peter Warr and Team Lotus. You don't need me to tell you that your team is in deep trouble. I write as a fan since 1963 who has never lost faith and has known that Team Lotus would always recover from any setback or difficulty and win again. Now I am not so sure. You don't need to consult your record books to know that this is the worst...

Broadley speaking

It is hard to pinpoint precisely when Eric Broadley went from being a special builder to becoming a constructor, but in 1958 he appeared with his Lola-Climax Mk1 and at the beginning of the 1959 season there were four of them and he was on his way. At the time 1100cc sports-car racing in Britain mast serious business, the equivalent of Formula Three today, and Lotus dominated by running works...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Fears Of A Clown

One of the old guard who should move over for youth, or the finest unfulfilled talent of his generation? Mark Skewis takes a look at Johnny Herbert's F1 career. Of the ridiculously small percentage of racing drivers who make it to Formula One, precious few ever win a Grand Prix: fewer still get to achieve that feat in front of their home crowd. Which was why, when Johnny Herbert crossed the...

Didier Pironi: Driven to destruction

Blamed for an act of treachery that eventually led Gilles Villeneuve to crash to his death, Didier Pironi's successful career is often forgotten. Mark Hughes profiles the life of an often complex, always political, character Rene Arnoux stood in the Dijon pit lane, listening. Listening to the throttle applications and braking points of an old friend performing a secret test in Rene's Ligier. What...
