Road car news

Lost tango in Paris French showcase lacks a little of its usual fizz | by Andrew Frankel I’d like to tell you that this year’s biennial visit to the Paris Motor Show produced the usual wall-to-wall orgy of new models as manufacturers jostled to get their latest ideas in front of the media, but I can’t. It was a somewhat subdued affair, populated more by concepts and fresh iterations of existing...

Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

Decoding the enigma

Lewis Hamilton divides opinion like no other current Formula 1 driver. Somewhere between the deifying and the vitriol lies the truth behind this monumental – yet flawed – talent of the tracks Lewis Hamilton is the most exciting performer on the Formula 1 grid.

The man who played with fire

Hockenheim brought the spectre of fire back to Grand Prix racing. In his first interview for almost two decades, former BRM chief Louis Stanley, who pioneered means of eliminating such risk, recalls the days when safety was a dirty word In his heyday on the Grand Prix circuits Louis T Stanley cut an imposing figure.

Reflections with... Nigel Roebuck

The thoughts of chairman Lauda, why politically correct is incorrect In a changing world there is always Niki Lauda, and thank the Lord for that. As Formula 1 ties itself in ever more convoluted knots, a chat with Lauda is always refreshing, not least for the reassurance that one is not alone in being dismayed by the showbiz path on which F1 appears increasingly set.
