Lunch with... Jochen Mass

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Modern Times

While Ferrari scored a predicted 1-2 at Silverstone, helped no end by the superiority of Bridgestone's wet-weather tyres over Michelin's, the chief excitement of the meeting surrounded the financial fate of the Arrows team. Non-payment of £3.2 million-worth of bills due to Cosworth for the team's engines meant that, on Niki Lauda's orders, the vital electronic control units needed to run at...

Patrick Head

FEISTY JUST LIKE HIS DAD May was a difficult time at Williams, having started the season far from where we had planned, but I won't dwell upon the steps we are taking to build a stronger team and a more consistent future. Formula 1 is a hard business, but the staff at Williams are all professionals and apply themselves to their tasks with 100 per cent commitment. Motor Sport has asked me to write...

Against expectations

  In the end, the Brazilian Grand Prix went against all expectations. Few would seriously have bet against the chances of Ayrton Senna, on his homeground, and the Williams-Renault. Even less so if you gave full credibility (and there was every justification to) to stories that the Brazilian had actually lapped Imola in recent testing another six-tenths of a second quicker than Michael Schumacher...

The power or the glory?

Is Formula One today merely a sad, bloated caricature of its once glorious past or have we, in fact, never had it so good? Shaun Campbell casts an impassive eye over the years and decides Was there ever a golden time of Grand Prix racing and, if so, when was it? What gives it distinction? Are we experiencing one now, or the good old days finally gone forever? And they really that good? Is it even...

Must The Show Go On?

If the rain won't stop, should the racing? Mark Skewis considers the controversial issue highlighted by the Spanish GP Two matters of concern arose from Barcelona's rain-lashed Grand Prix: one was an issue for Damon Hill, the other for the sport as a whole. The tour de force with which Michael Schumacher scored his first victory for Ferrari, and his team's first success with a V10 engine, was a...

Legends - The 1967 season

At present I'm working on a book, and a self-indulgent one at that, for my publisher has left the choice of content to me. So long as I keep to Grand Prix racing, from the beginning of the World Championship to the present day, I am free to write about whatever takes my fancy. What I want at any cost to avoid is yet another potted history of Formula One, and if consequently the book turns out a...
