Nigel Roebuck

Legends The rain masters Wet tracks have allowed outrageously talented drivers like Moss and Villeneuve to demonstrate all their remarkable skill If ever you needed proof that grip is the enemy of racing, last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix provided it. Ever since the first race at the Hungaroring, back in 1986, the circuit has been regarded as the dreariest in Formula 1, devoid of challenging...

Happy The Man

“I speak enough Japanese to get into trouble, but not enough to talk myself out of it!" After nine years in the Orient Geoff Lees has lost none of his native touches of humour, although he is now the senior figure among European drivers who have settled in Japan to reshape their careers, and by far the most successful. The Warwickshire-born driver, now 41, has led Toyota Team TOM'S sports car...

Legends: Estoril 1985

Legends: Estoril 1985 For many of us, Grand Prix racing entered a fallow period after the death in May 1982, of Gilles Villeneuve, and none felt that more keenly than Denis Jenkinson. Even though, with his love of horsepower, he adored the turbo era, he would mutter wistfully that now there was no driver around who could truly do justice to it. Anyone who knew him well will attest that Jenks had...

Jackie Stewart - BRM (1965)

By the time JYS reached Formula One, compatriot Jimmy Clark was the man to beat. Yet the younger Scot refused an opportunity to rate himself next to the best over at Lotus, instead opting for a seat alongside the next best: BRM's Graham Hill. The P261 was tremendous and so was Jackie: his first six GP starts yielded sixth, third, second, second, fifth and second. He also won his fourth Fl start,...

The world's greatest historic race meeting is back. If you were these last year you'll need no further encouragement. If not, read on and let Marcus Pye tell you exactly why you should spend September 17-19 weekend in West Sussex.

Cosworth Ford 105E

Mike Costin tells the story of the engine on which the success of Cosworth was founded, both technically and financially By Keith Howard Formula 1’s most famous engine – the Cosworth DFV – might never have been created but for the development battle that its designer Keith Duckworth fought, and won, with an altogether less adventurous project. It was 1959, eight years before the DFV’s sensational...

2009 Formula 1 preview

Sir Jackie Stewart – who was spot-on with his predictions for 2008 – once again shares his thoughts on the season ahead with Motor Sport, and explains why he thinks that Lewis Hamilton could be the next Jim Clark By Nigel Roebuck The jury’s still out on Kovalainen, isn’t it?” mused Jackie Stewart. “I expected more from him last year, but we have to remember he was in an unusual situation, in that...

Lunch with SIR JOHN WHITMORE In more ways than one, Sir John Whitmore is different. Since this monthly series began in Motor Sport six years ago I've been lucky enough to take some 80 motor sporting personalities to lunch, and I don't think any of them has had so short a racing career. Probably none has had so strange a life since walking away from the sport, either. But John makes a worthy and...
