McLaren overtakes Ferrari

Emotions run high in Adelaide, as Senna's 41st win dashes fairy tale retirement for Prost while pushing McLaren ahead of Ferrari in the all-time win stakes All in all, it was an emotional finale to the 1993 Grand Prix season, as the teams settled down in Adelaide. Alain Prost was preparing for retirement after 199 GP outings, 51 victories, 33 pole positions (the same as Jimmy Clark), 41 fastest...

Australian Grand Prix

Still waters run deep In motor racing, some lessons are never learned. After Roger Williamson's death in 1973, for example, marshalling still continued to be slack in some countries. After Tom Pryce's death four years later, foolish people still ran across tracks. The 1989 Australian GP should have been sufficient to chill even the least caring into an awareness of the risks presented by racing...

The seven-year itch

That’s how much time has passed since Johnny Herbert last raced an Audi R8 sports prototype – so how would its 2011 Le Mans-winning R18 stablemate compare? By Damien Smith Johnny Herbert is giggling, and as usual it seems to be contagious. He’s attempting to press himself into a ‘bucket’ seat that has been moulded to the pert contours of ‘wee’ Allan McNish, but it’s proving to be a bit of a...

Dinner with... Rubens Barrichello

He's started more World Championship F1 races than any other driver, but his passion for the sport remains engagingly intact... What the history books tell you first about Rubens Barrichello are the statistics: and they are indeed extraordinary. This man was 20 when he came into Formula 1, and 39 when he left it. In 19 seasons he raced in more Grands Prix than anyone, ever: 322 of them. He racked...

Simon Taylor's Notebook

The Grovewood Awards and their successors have always recognised young talent, but they can't foretell the future When circuit boss John Webb dreamed up the Grovewood Awards in 1963, his idea was to help one or two young British and Commonwealth hopefuls on their way. It was a low-key effort back then: Webby asked three journalists to meet him in a pub and thrash out which young driver should...

Pete King MBE

King, who has died aged 80, competed in a handful of European Touring Car Championship races in the 1970s and was persuaded by Brands Hatch boss John Webb to sponsor a series of production car races at the Kent circuit. He was also...

Why Herbert's first win exorcised years of anguish ”He'll be OK, but his sporting days are over." The surgeon who shuffled sadly out of the operating theatre to meet Johnny Herbert's parents, Bob and Jane, on the night of August 21 1988 will have been as surprised as anybody when their son crossed the line to score his maiden Grand Prix victory at Silverstone. "The last 10 laps were sheer hell...
