1984 British Grand Prix race report - A four-ring circus

  After the Demolition Derbies in Detroit and Dallas, the Formula 1 "circus" must have breathed a sigh of relief when they returned to Europe to start some serious Grand Prix racing. The Brands Hatch circuit, scene for the 1984 British Grand Prix, may not be the best in the world for Formula 1 cars but at least it is quick and challenging in its own small way, with a lap speed of over 130 mph for...

Formula One: The Italian Grand Prix

Renault all the way Monza, Italy, September 13th In these rather unsettled days it was nice to get back to the Monza track, the true home of the Italian Grand Prix. It looks as though common sense is going to prevail over big business and the Italian Grand Prix is to stay at the Monza track, while the San Marino Grand Prix will be run at the new, and very satisfactory, Imola track. There were no...

Matra team repeats the dose in North America

Watkins Glen, July 21st. A medical man would describe the Ferrari sportscar team's health as "as well as can be expected", with one round to go in the 1973 World Championship for Makes. At Watkins Glen late in July two Matras and three Ferraris fought out the 6-Hour Race on the Grand Prix circuit and the event ran true to current form: Cevert claimed pole position, was delayed early in the race...

Nürburgring 6 hours

Chris Amon/Hans-Joachim Stuck in this BMW 3.0 CSL lead home a BMW 1-2-3 in the Grosser Preis Der Tourenwagen, the Nürburgring 6-Hour race on July 8th. The leading BMWs, were fitted with a new spoiler arrangement recently homologated for the CSL, which gave an instant 10 sec. per lap improvement.

Lotus 79 If ever you were a Lotus fan Goodwood brought it all back. In the paddock, for example, were a pair of Lotus 25s, both ex-Clark, and at the Brooks auction were several items from Jimmy's career, including a letter to And Ferguson, written shortly before the 1963 British Grand Prix. He won the race, of course, en route to his first World Championship, and the car in the question – chassis...

Ferrari Celebration

Quite the most mouth-watering sight in the Spa-Francorchamps paddock during the weekend of the Belgian GP was magnate Albert Obrist's collection of sports-prototype racing Ferraris. They represented the period in which the marque scored its nine Le Mans triumphs, four at Daytona, eight in the Mille Miglia, nine in the Targa Florio and six in the Tourist Trophy. They brought the past back to date...

Suspended animation

Active suspension made a triumphant return at Kyalami, where Nigel Mansell ran away and hid As the dust settles once more on the parched Kyalami and the South African GP, we shall look back in the months to come and truly appreciate just how crushingly superior the Williams FW14Bs were. When Nigel Mansell spoke afterwards of his plan "to build a cushion of 20 seconds" you realised just how much...

1999 - The essential guide to the season

From Coys to Goodwood, Le Mans to Monza, this season's historic calendar is packed with thrills. Marcus Pye previews the best action. From ignominious failure to heroic Formula One World Championship success, engineering folly to mechanical wizardry, the story of British Racing Motors is a compelling one. Back in 1949, when the shattering sound of the first supercharged V16 engine roused the...

French letter

Sir, I always enjoy your old circuit retrospectives, but please don't try to rewrite history after your visit to Clermont-Ferrand. Jochen Rindt did not scorch "from pole position to victory" in the 1970 French GP; he had a very lucky win after a lacklustre weekend. Rindt had a poor practice and was only sixth on the grid in the Lotus 72 'wonder car', fully one and a half seconds slower than Jacky...

In his happy place

If Jenson Button justified his move to McLaren in 2010, last season he went some way to making the team his own Looking back, it seems ludicrous that the end of 2008 saw Jenson Button facing the scrap heap. With only one Grand Prix victory to his credit, the end of the road loomed as Honda pulled out. Then came the fairy tale World Championship triumph with Brawn, the oh-so prescient move to...
