The past master

Renowned for his expertise as both racing car restorer and driver, former F1 mechanic Simon Hadfield lives at the heart of Europe’s historic motor racing boomWriter Gordon Cruickshank, Photographer Howard Simmons If I hadn’t seen the roof of an articulated transporter over the hedge I’d swear I was in the wrong place. I’m looking for Simon Hadfield Racing, preparers of race cars for meetings all...

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...

Rock hard

Manfred Winkelhock never backed off in life or in racing. Adam Cooper recalls a true charger The appearance of 'M Winkelhock' at the top of the timing screens caught the eye in Monaco — but then it all went wrong. The yellow car arrived at Ste Devote out of shape and slid into the tyre barrier with a thump. The driver clambered out, frustrated at wasting his chance to hold on to pole position. It...

Notes on the cars in Brazil

The results of the six months testing and development carried out by the teams since the last race of 1982, was clearly seen in the Brazilian paddock, with new designs, revamped cars, engine installations, new colours, new names, new sponsors and an on. Not for a long time has a new season started with so much interest, occasioned partly by the new FISA rules banning under-car aerodynamics within...

Modern Times

The unseemly fight between Jaguar and McLaren — and thus, between the giant resources of the Ford Motor Company and Daimler-Chrysler AG — over who should pay Adrian Newey 170,000 a week for his design talents underlines a crucial shift in the whole structure of Formula One. It has long been a truism that if you put Michael Schumacher in a Minardi he'd be hard put to score a point. Moreover,...

Lunch with .... Tony Southgate

He’s one of the most successful designers of all, with Grand Prix, Indy 500 and multiple Le Mans winners to his credit. And when he retired, he went racing… It’s progressively harder these days for racing car designers to demonstrate true versatility. Formula 1 has greedily made itself the centre of everything, yet the very strictures of its regulations seem to stifle original thinking. As the...

One-lap Wonder

In 1986 Ferrari spent heavily on an Indy 500 contender. But, says its designer, it ran only a single test lap. By Gordon Cruickshank Can't play, won't play: Enzo Ferrari's response when things weren't going his way. He'd tried it before, and it looked like another such episode when in 1985 he announced Ferrari was going to America — to race in CART and win the Indy 500. The press portrayed it as...

Preview

A foregone conclusion for Prost? - or will Schumacher spring a major surprise? Has there ever been a season in which there has been so much uncertainty even before the racing begins? Back in 1990, of course, Ayrton Senna was the bete noire of F1 after his outburst against FISA following the exclusion from victory in the Japanese GP that he always believed cost him that year's World Championship....

The bigger picture

Andrea de Cesaris reckons the British press only homed in on the trip-ups in his 14-year, 10-team Formula 1 career. We flew to Rome to let him paint the wider scene Big breath. I have to go there. The matter has to be raised. So best get it out of the way, no point pussyfooting around the edges. So I look him in the eye, this man who retains a rather dubious record for starting the most Grands...

Notes On The Cars At Imola

AS THIS was the last European Grand Prix for this year, and the last opportunity for factories to do anything close to home, both Ferrari and Alfa Romeo took the opportunity of making clear their intentions for 1981. Ferrari ran their turbo-charged 1 1/2-litre V6 during practice and Alfa Romeo had their turbo-charged 1 1/2-litre V8 engine on show in the pits, with the information that it would...
