Lunch with... Jo Ramirez

The personable Mexican looks back over 40 years of Formula 1 glories and struggles, friendships and tragedies By Simon Taylor The problem is, lunch isn’t long enough. Over 40 seasons, this man has been friend and confidant to a succession of F1 heroes, helped them celebrate their victories and, too often, mourned their loss.

Notes on the cars at Kyalami

There was not so much new this year at Kyalami, as in the past, as many teams had got their new cars, or their uprated 1979 cars ready in time for the South American races in January. However, the South African event saw the debut of the 1980 Tyrrell and the 1980 ATS, together with new cars in their 1980 series, from Ferrari, Lotus, Ensign, Renault, Williams and Arrows, so the month break since...

Precision Timing

With a chilling precision, Mercedes took control of the Suzuka 480 Kms race in Japan and repeated last year's 1-2 result. Jean-Louis Schlesser and Mauro Baldi won the race, just as they did last year in the same C9 model, with Jochen Mass and his young Austrian protégé Karl Wendlinger 42 seconds behind. Geoff Lees started from pole position again, in the Tom's Toyota, so a casual observer might...

The first non-championship Formula 3000 race at Kyalami was a rip-roaring success. Only after the participants had drifted away did something sinister emerge... The German journalist couldn't believe his eyes. Several hours earlier, he had left Frankfurt on a Philippine Airlines Boeing 747 bound for London Gatwick. He'd transferred by coach to Heathrow, where he collected a ticket for his...

Putting it on the line

When ‘old muckers’ Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell teamed up for the Daytona 24 Hours it was a chance to prove they still have what it takes – and perhaps humble a few of their younger rivals By Damien Smith There's no point saying they had nothing to prove. They knew as soon as they signed up that we'd all be asking the question because, hell, they wanted to know themselves. Could they still...

IMSA GTP championship

Night and day! Derek Bell's particular blend of skill and good luck earned him his third victory at Daytona, and his eighth 24-hour race laurels in all, in the opening round of the 1989 IMSA GTP Championship. The Pagham driver's personal technique and car sympathy can only be one factor in this phenomenal record of victories; the other is to be in the right car at the right time, with co-drivers...
