Passion victim

He wore his heart on his sleeve and the Tifosi loved him for it. Their parting was all set to be sweet, but it ended in sorrow.

"I received a letter from a fan with all the numbers of what I did in my...

A wind of change

Riccardo Patrese finally scores his first win of the season If the wind hadn't changed direction on Sunday morning, the outcome might have been rather different. Gerhard Berger would most likely have won his second Japanese GP on the trot and McLaren and Honda would have produced just the result the latter sought on its home ground and in its penultimate appearance for the time being.
