Formula Two Review

With five of the 12 rounds of this year's European Formula Two Championship run two Swedish drivers head the points table. On paper Stefan Johansson has the lead on 19 points but fellow countryman Eje Elgh (18 points) is appealing against a disqualification from the results of the Thruxton round, which cost him six points. Elgh finished runner-up to Maurer team-mate Robert Guerrero at Thruxton...

The San Marino Grand Prix

Dull Imola, May 6th One thing about Italians, you know exactly where you stand with them; they are either deliriously happy or tragically sad, there is nothing in between.

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio de Janeiro, March 25th In sharp contrast to previous years, the Formula 1 "close season" has been very much longer this winter, stretching from Kyalami in mid-October 1983 until the Brazilian Grand Prix opened the 1984 season on March 25th. In the past many teams have spent time moaning that the break is far too short, giving them nowhere near sufficient time to complete development...

Notes on the cars in Brazil

The results of the six months testing and development carried out by the teams since the last race of 1982, was clearly seen in the Brazilian paddock, with new designs, revamped cars, engine installations, new colours, new names, new sponsors and an on.
