Gimme five!

In the heat of Imola nothing could stop Nigel Mansell setting another record. This time last year, at the fifth Grand Prix of the season, Williams-Renault had firmly indicated the strength of its challenge to McLaren-Honda. That race, the Canadian GP, ultimately fell to poor old Nelson Piquet in the Benetton-Ford, but only after Mansell's last minute drama. Senna had won the previous four, but...

Silverstone Parade

Sir, I was most interested to read Denis Jenkinson's report in your May issue of the Graham Hill International Trophy. I feel however that I must take him to task for some of his comments on the parade of cars included in the tribute to this most popular of drivers. As one who was involved in organising that part of the tribute, I believe I can say that the cars which were present were very...

Louis Stanley: What today's F1 people recall about his heyday

Jackie Stewart "Louis was a larger than life character who brought a bit of colour, and certainly a different demeanour to Formula One Grand Prix racing. He and his wife Jean: there was clearly a degree of respectability about their manners, about their deportment and their presence, which I think did no harm to motorsport at all. His contribution with regard to his obstinacy and forcefulness...

Nigel Roebuck's Legends

Ferrari's P4 was both beautiful and effective and Chris Amon said it made its Ford Mk11 rival feel like a truck P4. Two syllables to send shivers down your spine — or mine, anyway. In a debate about the best-looking sports-racing car of all time, my choice would lie between the 1956 Maserati 300S and... of course, Ferrari's 1967 masterpiece. To my eyes, the 330P4 is perfection, and I can still...

Up the creek without a saddle

Nuvolari, Rosemeyer, Surtees and Hailwood were bike stars who made seamless transitions to four wheels, from leaning to sliding. But a two-wheel hero's speed, balance and competitive edge doesn't guarantee four-wheel success. Fate can play a hand, as Colin Goodwin explains Geoff Duke Lancashire's Geoff Duke was at the top of motorcycle racing at the end of the 1951 season. He'd just won the 350...

Cotton On....

Whither Mercedes? If anyone is wondering how serious is Mercedes' involvement in motor racing today, they should note the reaction of the firm's public relations manager, Bernd Harling, when I speculated that, "if Mercedes wins at Le Mans next year . . . ". He cut me short: "When Mercedes wins at Le Mans next year!" From that source, I thought I should take serious note. Harling is a member of...

All for one

Renault had never looked like winning Le Mans — its motorsport programme was too fragmented. That all changed in 1977, but it took another year for this revolution to take effect. Paul Fearnley explains why Judging by how far the man holding the microphone-on-a-stick jumps back as the car fires up, our fervent hope that this Le Mans-winner's turbo V6 might not bust today's noise limit has just...
