You were there

Another chapter in our series for amateur motor racing photographs contributed by our readers, from their own archives. This month's selection takes us to Reims and Aintree "One of the first sounds I ever heard was J-P Wimille's Alfetta" says MIchel Mathieu. His family lived at Gueux, on the old Reims circuit and would picnic in the garden as the cars streaked past. His father saw every meeting...

Ferrari will have two crowned champions at the helm when it wheels its cars to the grid for the 2014 Australian Grand Prix – a first in world championship terms since Italy 1953, when Alberto Ascari and Nino Farina formed part of a six-strong line-up at Monza. The team has hired many illustrious names before and since, but which are Ferrari's 20 greatest F1 drivers? Writer Simon Arron A curious...

Little cars, big grids

Sir, I can only marvel at your dexterity in managing to compile a 10-page Historic Season Preview in the April edition of Motor Sport - without more than the briefest passing reference to the 2003 Historic Championship of the Year. I am speaking of Historic Formula Junior, in which one can - quite literally - race every weekend between April and October, and which has a pool of over 200 cars...

Spare a thought

Dear Reader, Last year I asked you to send me a postcard listing your three personal Memorable Moments in motor racing, and the response has been overwhelming.

Ostentatious displays of pomp and circumstance leave me cold. That is not to say that I am totally agin tradition. Not 21-gun-salute tradition, but the neat touches of style and behaviour that make the world a better place. Little things can mean a lot — even in our global sport For instance, it was clear that the Brickyard's bricks would have to be ripped up if the track was to maintain its...

Johnny Servoz-Gavin rather shook everyone at Monaco in 1968. Subbing for an injured Jackie Stewart, he qualified Ken Tyrrell's Matra second, behind Graham Hill's Lotus. An archetypal '60s figure, Servoz-Gavin is a forgotten man now, but that weekend he was the talk of the paddock. In the race he took an immediate lead, but clobbered the guardrail at the chicane and soon the damaged Matra was out...

REFLECTIONS - Amid the excitement, DRS is a gimmick too far - It's time the Formula 1 got rid of the 'one move' rule - A joke or several courtesy of Frank Gardner You could hardly fault the Chinese Grand P • in terms of action — and this on a track rdly renowned for it. At different points five drivers led the race, and all afternoon there was more overtaking than any longtime Formula 1 observer...
