A dozen of Stirling's drives were nominated. Yet no-one thought to mention his stunning performance at Aintree in 1957 — a typical recovery from early dramas — that opened the British floodgates in grand prix racing. Experts, what do they know? I mean to say, not a single Ronnie Peterson drive made it into our Top 100. One of the jury stuck Superswede's 1974 victory in Monaco towards the tail-end...

Whenever conversations about ‘great moments’ come up it’s rare for that weekend not to be mentioned. For racing fans, this one makes the all-time top 10. Invariably,...

My greatest race He has won races from Le Mans to Indycars but says the greatest win of all was in Formula Ford where a trick new front wing put him in a class ahead of the field British Formula Ford 2000 Championship race, Donington Park 1986 I was just 19 years old, and I had just blitzed the opposition.

Videos - Car Wars 5

There are now so many mishap videos on the market that the gaudily-packaged likes of Havoc and Car Wars are no longer so obvious when stacked amongst tamer offerings. First things first. We have no particular objection to such productions, so long as they are tastefully executed and honest. Unfortunately, Front Runner's Car Warsseries has not always been entirely truthful when claiming that none...

Michael Schumacher got a shock at Interlagos. Not that Juan Montoya's Williams jinked and juddered to take the lead of the Brazilian GP off him — everyone knew the confident Colombian star was going to grasp the first chance to put down his marker.

A two-horse race?

Last year it was Mansell chasing Senna. Will it be the other way round in 1992? Quintessentially, 1991 was a two-horse race, with Ayrton Senna winning seven Grands Prix to Nigel Mansell's five, Patrese supporting his team-mate with a brace of victories, and Berger and Piquet picking up but a win apiece.
