Argentine Grand Prix

Buenos Aires, January 9th Although Argentina is mere, thousands of miles away from the recognised European "home" of Formula One Grand Prix circuit racing, it has organised qualifying rounds in the World Championship intermittently ever since 1953, although there was a gap of 12 years between Bruce McLaren's victory in a Cooper-Climax in 1960 and Jackie Stewart's win with a Tyrrell-Cosworth five...

Formula Two review

After three rounds in what looks like being a tough year of Formula Two, there have been three different winners, in three different makes of car and using three different types of engine. The European championship was predictably being led by the little Frenchman Rene Arnoux in his Martini Renault but a number of very promising young newcomers to the FIA championship have emerged. These drivers...

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Reutemann wins through the carnage Sao Paulo, January 23rd After two weeks of feverish activity following the Argentine Grand Prix, the second round of the 1977 World Championship series took place at the sinuous, bumpy 4.946-mile Interlagos track amidst the bustling suburbs of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Although many of the drivers enjoyed an easy time relaxing on sun-soaked beaches along the South...

Notes on the Cars at Monte Carlo

There was nothing startlingly new at Monte Carlo, but quite a lot of detail improvements and modifications to existing cars. However, the Scuderia Ferrari produced a brand new 312T2 car, number 027 in the series, and this was given to Regazzoni. The first of the T2 cars, number 025, was relegated to the role of "muletta" or the team spare. Lauda was still with his usual car, number 026, and as...

Notes on the cars in Argentina

For most of the teams it was a case of carrying on where they left off at the end of 1976, with time for a few modifications and improvements; however, Lotus, Wolf (nee Williams), Ensign and Ligier all had brand new cars in South America. On the face of things the impression at the end of last season was that McLaren had ended the year on a crest of a wave, but in fact they did not win the last...

The Brazilian Grand Prix goes to Rio

Rio de Janeiro, January 29th The second of the two early-season Championship Grand Prix races took place in Brazil fourteen days after Andretti's runaway win in Buenos Aires. This time the Brazilian Grand Prix took place, not at Sao Paulo's impressive five-mile Interlagos circuit, but at the brand new Circuit Internacional do Rio de Janeiro, a twisting autodromo complex situated some 20 miles or...

Notes on the Cars at Brands Hatch

There were a couple of new cars in the paddock as distinct from new designs, when practice started for the Grand Prix at Brands Hatch, Niki Lauda had a brand new Ferrari, number 028 in the 312T2 series. It did not differ from his previous car, the successful 026, though the monocoque was a fraction lighter, having been constructed in a similar vein to 027 the car being used by Regazzoni. Lauda's...

Notes on the Cars at Zolder

There were numerous detail changes in the paddock scene at Zolder compared to Jarama two weeks before, notably among airbox designs for the engines, though many teams were still not convinced of the final layout or even that they were an advantage, Shadow, Ensign and Fittipaldi all experimented with no scoops or hoses at all. If anyone had any doubts about the seriousness of the Tyrrell-Gardner...

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Lauda confirms Ferrari's mastery San Paulo, January 25th The 1976 Grand Prix season started on a difficult note in January in the same way as the 1975 season ended last October. Having agreed that their race would take place, the Automovil Club Argentina abruptly announced the cancellation of the Argentine Grand Prix, due to take place in Buenos Aires' Parc Almirante Brown on January 11th, thus...

Notes on the cars at Jarama

On May 1st, the second day of practice for the Spanish GP, some supplementary rules for Formula One cars came into force, notably the elimination of tall air-collector boxes for the engines and a reduction of the maximum overhang of the rear aerofoil behind the centre-line of the rear wheels; these two limitations hopefully curbing the ever-rising speeds round circuits. In addition there had to...
