Enough Hectoring

Sir, I enjoyed the Brabham stories in your May issue, but am still reeling from your choice of cover photograph. Why, when you could have featured such Brabham legends as Black Jack himself, Denny Hulme, Dan Gurney, _Jacky Ickx, Niki Lauda or Nelson Piquet, did you choose that archetypal mega-buck no-mark, Hector Rebaque? Still, I should be grateful that you didn't run Motor Sport's first Rebaque...

Formula One: Dutch GP

Renault really win Zandvoort, August 30th It takes me a good ten minutes to walk from the pits of the Zandvoort circuit to the Press grandstand from which I watch the race. That in itself is no great problem, the tiresome bit is that after battling with the crowds, dragging my feet through the deep sand of a car park, climbing the dark staircase up the back of the main grandstand where it smells...

The United States Grand Prix West

Scratcher's Paradise Long Beach, California, April 2nd Racing through the streets of Long Beach is now well established, but you can only do it once a year, not every day, but on that one occasion it is done remarkably well. This year's Formula One Grand Prix was the third World Championship event to be held through the streets of the Californian seaport, the previous two being won by Regazzoni (...

The Grand Prix Collection DVD/VHS.10 x 52mins £149.99 (DVD)/£129.99 (VHS) with free copy of Formula One 1980: or individually £16.99 (DVD)/ £14.99 (VHS) It wasn't until James Hunt ignited the tabloids' interest—through his on and off-track exploits — that Formula One became subjected to the media blitz in which it exists today. Because of that, this trawl through the 1970s (one...

The Argentine Grand Prix

Andretti and Lotus all the wayBuenos Aires, January 15th With the Grand Prix season stretching from January to October, it is not unusual for the first race of the year to be like the last one of the previous year, especially as regards the cars, but this year the Argentine entry was full of interest. Mostly it was a matter of drivers among the top echelon changing teams, but there were revised...

Hector's Grouse

Sir, It is interesting that Cyril Day raises a point about the definition of the term 'privateer' in the August edition of MOTOR SPORT, particularly if one considers the fuss made by a certain editor about Hector Rebaque being pictured on the front cover of the May edition driving a Brabham BT49 rather than Nelson Piquet who won races in this car. Was Rebaque not the last privateer in F1 by...

Formula One: The German Grand Prix

The unlucky get the luck Hockenheimring, August 10th With a four-week break since the British Grand Prix the 1980 season seemed to be starting all over again and this feeling was magnified upon entering the vast concrete stadium of the Hockenheimring early on Friday morning to find everything comparatively still and quiet and the vast tiers of grandstand seats empty and deserted. The whole scene...

Simon Taylor

Here in Britain, a wave of patriotic indignation greeted the news that Justin Wilson had lost his seat in the budget-challenged Jaguar F1 team. This, said the gossip, was in order to admit some unknown Austrian youth with an earring, who was buying his drive for many millions of dollars. Ultimate proof, surely, that Fl is all about money, and nothing else. One lounge bar cynic told me he had it...
