Formula One: Monaco GP

Sweet sixteen for Senna The bald facts say that Ayrton Senna pulverised his opposition to win his 16th Grand Prix in Monaco. That he won going away in a crisp style which exorcised the ghost of 1988, when he had led comfortably only to slide into the barrier at Portier following a momentary lapse of concentration. As usual, however, the bald facts tell only part of the story. The one that...

Endangered species

The risk of dusting off this irreplaceable Le Mans winner for a 20th anniversary test run terrified the men at Mazda. But their fear couldn’t quench the fun for our lucky driver By Sam Hancock If I tell you not to think of an elephant, what do you do? If I then repeat myself and suggest – this time more sternly – that you really ought not to think of a giant grey elephant with its long trunk,...

How the war was won

Why Benetton has broken the Williams/McLaren stranglehold on the Constructors' series. There has been just one glaring flaw in Benetton's planning this season: no venue had been organised for the celebrations which accompanied the clinching of its two F1 crowns. Instead it was Williams which appeared to have arrived at the Japanese Grand Prix with a hangover. At the end of a long campaign, Suzuka...

The Scream that got the Cat

An Audi with a roof? Put a lid on it...

Bentley conquered Le Mans all over again in 2003 with this stunning Speed 8. Just don’t suggest it’s a German car in disguise… Unalloyed triumphs are rare events. With almost every victory comes a tinge of regret, a sense not just of a job well done, but ways in which it could have been done even better. Bentley’s successful three-year campaign to win the Le Mans 24 Hours at the start of this...

Modern times

When, back in July, Michael Schumacher telescoped his Ferrari into the tyre wall at Stowe, we knew at once that things would be different for a while.

The answer was, not...

The month in Motor Sport

OCTOBER 13: The FIA's World Motor Sports Council ratifies changes to F1 technology, though no official regulations are forthcoming. As expected, traction control and other driver 'aids' are to be banned, while refuelling is made permissible once again. An F1 calendar is also issued. This includes Argentine and Pacific Grands Prix, at circuits which have still to be confirmed. South Africa and...

Collision course

Why did the Hill-Schumacher crash occur? When the stewards debated the punishment they should mete out to Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher for the collision which was the talking point of the British Grand Prix, they would have been well-advised to remember that it's not the done thing to shoot the messenger. For in some respects that's exactly what the title protagonists were. Their tangle was...
