A timely triumph

When Michael Schumacher's Benetton stuck in fifth gear, Damon Hill was there to scoop the spoils for an intensely relieved Williams team. There were many, it must be said, whose scepticism got the better of them after the Spanish GP. Could Michael Schumacher really have done the last two-thirds of the race in only fifth gear, including a pit stop? You can try to calculate what percentage there...

A jam-packed season

Owen racing organisation BRM versus Team Lotus For the two drivers who battled out the 1962 Formula 1 World Championship to its nail-biting last-round conclusion, the year had started very differently.

Stars & Gripes

The success of Lotus at Indy led to some of the craziest most nightmarish cars ever seen at Brickyard. Joe Scalzo tells their strange tells and sympathises with those who drove them them. Тhe great Don Branson (1920-1966) was, among many wonders and eccentricities, a tortoise. He abominated having to flop on his back in a race cat Front-engine Offenhauser roadsters and upright dirt track cars...

REFLECTIONS A revelation from Rubens, and a Monza masterclass When the Wood Brothers went to Indianapolis… A Grand Prix driver doesn’t often come out with something that takes your breath away in these days of PR control and ‘spin’. The press room is – of course – always alive with rumour and gossip, and as each season draws on there is increasing speculation about who goes where next year. It...

Lunch with... David Hobbs

The results didn't always come his way, but over three decades this expat Brit enjoyed the sort of variety in his racing career that today's F1 stars can only dream about, By Simon Taylor David Hobbs is 71 now, still the quintessential Englishman with the deadpan humour that stayed with him through a 30-year-plus racing career.

Legend Jo Ramirez

In the contemporary F1 Paddock, folk without enemies are hard to find. It's a hard-nosed environment which can have a desensitising effect over the years.
