Modern times

Simon Taylor As far as victory was concerned, the German Grand Prix was finished at the first corner. It was always going to be won by one of three Michelin-shod cars: but two of them, Ralf Schumacher's Williams and Kimi Raikkonen's McLaren, were eliminated at the start. This left Juan Pablo Montoya with a straightforward job to do, and he did it to perfection. Helped by the new scoring system,...

Veteran to classic -- Vintage Indy

Indianapolis was Different -- A look at the American "500" in Vintage Times With the classic Indianapolis 500 mile race flirting with the idea of altering its rules to permit F1 3-1/2-litre non-turbo engines to be eligible and with drivers up to the calibre of Ayrton Senna casting a thoughtful glance at this money-rich race, it is amusing to reflect on how British enthusiasts saw this fast,...

Lunch with... Derek Bell

He’s the English gentleman who’s scored more sports car wins than even he can remember, although no one will ever forget his record at Le Mans and Daytona By Simon Taylor Derek Bell is, quintessentially, an Englishman. He has raced with enormous success in the USA, where he is a popular figure; his wife Misti is American, and he spends much of the year at his waterside house in Boca Raton,...

A look back at 1970

DSJ reviews the past F1 season It would not be unreasonable to look back on 1970 as the year of deception in Grand Prix racing, for many people, from drivers to journalists were on tip-toe with excitement and hope at the beginning of the year and these hopes came to nothing. However, it was not all deception for there was much of interest and many unexpected things happened, and sadly many of...

Guards Trophy

Brands Hatch THE B.R. & S.C.C.'s International meeting at Brands Hatch on August Bank Holiday Monday, run over the 2.6-mile long circuit was a pleasant contrast to last year's event—blessed with very good weather, which a very large crowd thoroughly appreciated while watching an interesting programme. Entries for the main race of the day, the 50-lap Guards International Trophy race for sports...

XVIIIth Grand Prix of Monaco

Moss is Supreme Monte Carlo, May 29th. Being the first major Grand Prix of the European season, everyone was out in full force and the entry list was one of the most interesting seen for some time. The B.R.M. team had three of their 1960 rear-engined cars, with Bonnier, Gurney and Graham Hill as drivers; Cooper had their two 1960 ears in the hands of Brabham and McLaren, these new cars looking...

The shock of the news

At a time when racing fatalities were by no means uncommon, Jim Clark’s death caused the biggest shock of all. Derek Bell, Max Mosley and Jackie Stewart recall that fateful day at Hockenheim By David Tremayne Team personnel rubbed their hands together to ward off the frosty chill as they left their hotels for the short run to the Hockenheimring, the circuit close to Mannheim in Germany, on the...

Portuguese Grand Prix

Brabham Yet Again Porto, August 14th This year it was the turn of the Portuguese Grand Prix to go north to the town of Porto, where the race was held in 1958, and the same 7.407-kilometre circuit was used, unchanged from two years ago. I then considered it a true road-racing circuit and I still do, being fast (over 110-mph average) and containing all the hazards of a true road race, especially...

Delirium Tremens -- Jo Siffert remembered

An indomitable will to win IN 1948 at Bremgarten a 12 year-old Swiss boy watched, entranced, as a Frenchman wove his magic driving a Gordini. The boy's name was Joseph Siffert, the Frenchman's Raymond Sommer. Coeur de Lion, they called the latter, Lionheart. It was his name long before anyone ever thought of coining it for Nigel Mansell, and Sommer was an artist, a man to whom the manner in...

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...
