The moneyman with soul

John Hogan has worked out of the limelight during his 40 years in Formula 1. But as the sponsor man from Marlboro, he wielded great power within the sport he loved Writer: Damien Smith, Photographer: Howard Simmons Recognise this guy? It would be quite understandable if you didn’t. Yet for the best part of 30 years, he was considered one of the most powerful and influential figures in the Formula...

Reflections with Nigel Roebuck

The Bianchi accident, Montjuich Park 1975, Vettel and Alonso In the hours following Jules Bianchi’s accident, several moments and conversations came back to me, one of them with Martin Brundle at Suzuka in 1995, in which he recalled the Japanese Grand Prix a year earlier. In appalling conditions – worse even than those at this year’s race – Brundle’s McLaren flew off the road at the Dunlop Curve...

“I never considered early on that Niki could beat me to the championship. That was a mistake!"

In 1984, Alain Prost joined mighty McLaren and confirmed what we already knew: he was the fastest man on the grid. But wily old team-mate Lauda wasn’t about to roll over… F1 was set for an epic – and the tightest finish in history Writer Adam Cooper Just as the 2014 F1 season has turned into a battle between two team-mates, so it was 30 years ago when Niki Lauda and Alain Prost fought out one of...

My greatest race - John Watson

1983 US GP (West) He started 22nd on the grid but, with the right tyres, a positive mental attitude and a svengali in the pits, John Watson was able to pull off one of the most unlikely victories in Grand Prix history. Long Beach in 1983 was my greatest and most memorable Grand Prix, and it's memorable because of three elements; the build-up to the event, the race itself, and then the conclusion...

The enmity within

It’s war between Ferrari and McLaren in 2007, but this rivalry goes back over three decades By Adam Cooper The ongoing spy scandal involving Nigel Stepney and Mike Coughlan provides a distracting background to yet another World Championship battle involving McLaren and Ferrari. The two teams share an interwoven history, and have been locked in battle since the 1970s. Bruce McLaren entered his own...

As fate would have it

Patrick Tambay seemed to have little control over the direction of his rollercoaster — and successful — career. He talks to Marcus Simmons He moved through motorsport like the hero in a Voltaire novel, his career seemingly shaped by destiny, a series of chance happenings and the recurrent reappearances of several figures who would disappear out of his story only to be reprised years later just...

Lunch with Eddie Jordan

He’s the racer-turned-team boss whose wheeling and dealing helped him scale the heights of Formula 1 – and bring a sense of fun to the grid It’s safe to assume that we will never again see the like of Jordan Grand Prix. As the financial and political qualifications for entry into Formula 1 become ever tougher, and the paddock becomes more and more serious and straight-faced, so the possibility of...

Gilles Villeneuve on Didier Pironi: "It's war. Absolutely war."

That’s what Gilles Villeneuve said of his rivalry with team-mate Didier Pironi, who he felt had betrayed him in winning the San Marino Grand Prix. Paul Fearnley unravels the story  Photo: Motorsport Images A tenth. A lifetime. Ferrari tech chief Mauro Forghieri leaned in, shouted. Something. But his ‘innocent believer’ was in another, altogether darker place. Bad-news ticker tape discarded, arms...

Leo Sayer

I’m very happy finally to make it into the pages of Motor Sport, even if it is about 40 years later than I’d have liked. When I left school in the mid-sixties I was not very good at very much else but art, and I went into graphic design. It was around about that time that I sent some gouache paintings of F1 cars to Motor Sport.  It was particularly the Brabhams that I was obsessed with at the...

Alain Prost

Alain Prost An interview with the new World Champion pIERGUIDO CasteIli wasn't remotely interested in the scene outside the technical centre. The excited babble of 200 anxious pressmen and photographers at the gates of Fiorano left him cold. Alain Prost was about to have his first run in a Ferrari, but CasteIli had no intention of watching the run itself. Instead, he was off to watch the...
