REFLECTIONS Optimism replaces oppression at Silverstone More bad feeling in the Red Bull wing… Patrick Depailler – F1’s automotive SAS man There was something strange about Silverstone this year, and it was not simply to do with changes to the circuit, major though these were. It was oddly unsettling to find the familiar bridge before Copse gone – for how many years had one tramped over it en...

The World Championship of MakesOsterreichring, June 29th With victories in both of what will probably prove to be the last two rounds of the series, Alfa Romeo have won this year's World Championship for Makes, taking the title for the first time in their history. For the small crowd that witnessed the Austrian event however, it won't be the Italian conquest that sticks in their minds, but the...

Letters

Working with the Warwicks Sir, I write to say how very much I enjoyed Simon Taylor’s article on lunching with Derek Warwick in Jersey (April issue). Some 40 years ago my father, Samuel Lee, was company secretary to Warwick Trailers in Alresford and he always said Derek would be the next World Champion. Derek, as was stated, was frequently in the wrong car and place! I never met Derek but tales of...

Wolf WR1, Lotus 49B, Maserati 250F and Alfa Romeo 8C - Monaco Grand Prix winners all. But how did they fare at this year's historique festival?

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Notes on the Cars in Austria

Making notes about the Ferrari ears at the Osterreichring was quite simple; there were no Ferrari cars. After the German Grand Prix the Commendatore withdrew his team, ostensibly for the rest of the 1976 season, for reasons dealt with elsewhere. The March team had to undertake one of their biggest rebuilding programmes ever, after the Nurburgring. The cars of Brambilla and Peterson were virtually...

Dr Josef Ehrlich

This talented and innovative engineer — in racing and industry circles for both bikes and cars — passed away last month. He is best remembered in motorsport for his Formula Three and Formula Atlantic designs. Having fled Austria before WWII, Ehrlich gained an enviable reputation via his bike engines. In 1948, he built a three-cylinder, and later a two stroke that swept the board. Mike Hailwood...

Nigel Roebuck's legends

It is 30 years since Niki Lauda's fiery crash left him hovering between life and death; 40 days later he raced again, and finished fourth in a grand prix. It was an extraordinary feat of determination and personal bravery Monza. The 2006 Italian Grand Prix is a few days away as I write, and 30 years have passed since the most remarkable happening I have ever encountered in motor racing. In the '...
