Coach Work Just how relevant is personal driver coaching in Formula 1? Sir Jackie Stewart believes the benefits could be manifold but another former GP winner disagrees fundamentally Ever wondered why F1 drivers do not have personal driving coaches? The world’s greatest tennis players, golfers and other athletes have them, so why not drivers? A coach wouldn’t need to be a better driver, just as a...

I've Started so I'll Finish

Jan Magnussen may be starring in the ITC, but he still hankers after an F1 opportunity. Marcus Simmons found out why They used to say that when you commented on the youth of policemen, you must be getting old. Nowadays it seems that, instead of the boys in blue, it's the lads racing touring cars that seem to be only just out of school. This year, it could well be that the International Touring...

Young, Free and Stifled

This month, we reflect on the career of Chris Amon, a man habitually recalled as one of motor racing's natural greats, even though not one of his 96 World Championship Grand Prix starts yielded a victory. At a time when Formula One drives are ever harder to come by, it is remarkable to recall that Amon got his first World Championship opportunity when he was still a teenager. It happened because...

The Ones That Got Away

Jan Magnussen was famously described by Jackie Stewart - who hired him to race for his fledgling GP team - as the most talented driver since Senna. But in his brief and fruitless time in F1, he struggled to replicate the brilliant form he showed in F3 and now sits and watches as others aim for the top. So what went wrong? What stops some drivers from clearing that final hurdle? "It often comes...

Good T IL's been a battle. Gareth Rees' career up to now has not all been plain sailing. It's almost as if the Bath-born, Stoney Stratforddomiciled driver has been testing himself. One bad year, followed by one good (1990 Motorcraft FFI600 Champion and McLaren/Autosport Young Driver of the Year), one bad year, followed by one good (1992 Vauxhall Lotus Euroseries Champion), and then 1993, his...

Too much too young - Jan Magnussen

Jackie Stewart billed Jan Magnussen as the next Senna. Then he sacked him. How could arguably the biggest talent of the 1990s have failed so dramatically in F1? Andrew Benson unravels the mystery Jan Magnussen is under few illusions about his Formula One career. "I let myself down," he says, "and that always hurts.
