The Brazilian Grand Prix

Reutemann wins through the carnage Sao Paulo, January 23rd After two weeks of feverish activity following the Argentine Grand Prix, the second round of the 1977 World Championship series took place at the sinuous, bumpy 4.946-mile Interlagos track amidst the bustling suburbs of Sao Paulo in Brazil. Although many of the drivers enjoyed an easy time relaxing on sun-soaked beaches along the South...

Continental Notes

It now looks as though there is more than meets the eye in the "manoeuvrings" to get the German GP away from the Nurburgring. One "ministry man" involved with the Constructors Associations is clutching on to a fading document said to be "signed by all the F1 drivers" in which they unanimously agreed not to race at the Nurburgring in 1977. This was signed by those in action at the time at Monaco...

Heroic GP failures

They probably seemed a good idea at the time but there have been some diabolically dreadful GP cars, recalls Shaun Campbell To motor racing historians the 1951 British Grand Prix was a watershed event. It was the first World Championship Grand Prix win for Ferrari which is an important enough reason in itself but it also marked the end of Alfa Romeo's postwar dominance of this class of racing,...

Downhill all the way

The BRM P201's first grand prix flattered to deceive: it was too little too late. Paul Fearnley tells the story and drives a survivor As his wheezy, knock-kneed steed cantered along Kyalami's main straight at almost 150mph — well, it was downhill! — the 'Cowangie Kid' had plenty of time to mull over his future. Larry Perkins, for it was he, desperately wanted to stay in Formula One — but no...

Fatal friction

Overshadowed as Villeneuve’s team-mate, Didier Pironi was turning into a great driver. But his mind games against Gilles and the tragic outcome did not make him popular… Twenty-five years have passed since the death of Gilles Villeneuve, the most beloved racing driver of his generation, and many words have lately been devoted to a man without whom, for many, motor racing has never been quite the...

The Maverick who refused to play the game

H e was racing’s blue-eyed boy: effortless speed, natural confidence, a Grand Prix driver at 19. Mike Thackwell had talent to throw away – and that’s what he did, to go surfing instead. If you knew him then, you would not know him now. He is a different man in a different world. A maverick, intellectually restless, a loner, blessed from birth with a prodigious talent. A man of many and complex...

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. By his own assessment, misfortune and missed opportunities meant he...

The Italian Grand Prix

An Anglo-Italian victory Monza, September 11th Despite annual rumours that the race must be moved eventually owing to various local objections, legal sanctions or whatever, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza continues to be the final race in the European Formula One season. Over the years we have seen the Milanese circuits change and evolve in many ways, going from road circuit to a combination of...

MONARCH OF THE GLEN

MONARCH OF THE GLEN TIME WAS WHEN WE ENDED THE World Championship season in North America, and right well that suited most of us, too. Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix, then a few days in New England before fetching up in Watkins Glen for the last race... it was all most agreeable. Mind you, much depended on the elements. Upstate New York in the fall can be sublime, but in 1979 the weather...

Ferrari's 'Thank You' to fans

World Champions Michael Schumacher and Ferrari entertained 60,000 rapturous fans at Mugello on 29 October, just a week after the German secured the Scuderia's first driver's title since Jody Scheckter's in 1979.
