Notes on the cars at Buenos Aires

Lotus: Gone are the sleek black and gold creations from Hethel, they are now green with yellow lining. Gone too is the fatuous title "John Player Special", they are now "Martini-Lotus" (though Motor Sport has never considered a Lotus anything other than a Lotus).

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...

The Pearl Of Warwick

You have to sympathise with Jean Todt and the Peugeot Talbot Sport team. Winners of four Sportscar World Championship races this year, dominant at Le Mans, and confirmed as world champions in August, they find that paddock talk is confined to the paucity of entries, and the near certain demise of the series in October. Derek Warwick, who shares the drivers' championship with Yannick Dalmas,...

Me and my Arrows

At a time when Formula One cars generally looked very individual, the Shadow and Arrows of 1978 were startlingly similar - and more than one person noticed. Among them was Alan Henry, who describes how he - and arrows - were court in the act It's funny how a throwaway remark can sometimes boomerang. Walking into the Shadow team's garage at the 1978 Silverstone International Trophy meeting, I...

Formula One trend of design

Manufacturer's Identity Recently the FISA made a new ruling that racing cars should retain the identity of the manufacturer or constructor, and that in all written entries or documents the name of the manufacturer or constructor must be mentioned though the sponsors name may be associated with it. This may seem strange to those of us brought up on famous names like Delage, Bugatti, Maserati, Alfa...

Ligier-Alfa split on eve of Rio

After Alfa Romeo took a year's sabbatical from Formula One in order to develop a brand new four-cylinder turbocharged engine, the Italian firm's partnership with the Ligier team ended even before the first race of the year had been run.

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.

New Formula One cars

As many new Formula One cars seem to be appearing as the weekly "comics" discover budding new Formula One drivers in Formula Ford, Formula Atlantic or Formula Three, but just as it is a long way from professional Club racing to winning a Grand Prix, it is also a long way from completing the building of a Formula One car to it getting the chequered flag.
