Fruits of passion

Eddie Jordan knows the mild taste of Formula One success. In 1996, he knows he has to get used to something a little stronger "Out of my way, you froggies," demanded Eddie Jordan, face creased with a mischievous grin, as he pushed his way into the Ligier awning. "I'd like to have a word with my driver! "Tom? Tom? Come out of there, you coward..." Had the object of his taunt, Tom Walkinshaw,...

Lunch with Eddie Jordan

He’s the racer-turned-team boss whose wheeling and dealing helped him scale the heights of Formula 1 – and bring a sense of fun to the grid It’s safe to assume that we will never again see the like of Jordan Grand Prix. As the financial and political qualifications for entry into Formula 1 become ever tougher, and the paddock becomes more and more serious and straight-faced, so the possibility of...

Letter to readers

This and That Dear Reader, Not surprisingly my list of "greats" among the top racing drivers of the past 45 years, which I published in the January issue of Motor Sport, has brought forward a lot of response. Older readers asked why I had left out Fangio, while younger ones wanted to know why Prost was not in the list. Fangio won five World Championships and Prost has won 44 Grand Prix races,...

Jordan turns back on team

Eddie clears desk as new-look unit rebuilds without him Eddie Jordan's decision to sell his Formula One team to 36-year-old Russian billionaire Alex Shnaider has brought an end to his 14-year term in motor racing's upper echelon. It will likely signal the end of the Jordan name in F1, too, for the team is expected to be rebranded as Midland F1 by 2006. The deal was struck on January 21, with...

Jordan Grand Prix announced

The arrival of any new Grand Prix team is usually greeted with a mixture of enthusiasm and scepticism, the latter usually the predominant emotion, even if that team arrives with a formidable reputation it has built up from the lower formulae. The newly formed Jordan Grand Prix, though, can perhaps be accorded a little more respect. Eddie Jordan's reputation as a successful team owner is well...

Is there a brake on F1 talent?

Is money the overriding factor which influences driver choice, graduation and progression? It's still there, on my notebook for the 1989 Brazilian GP at Rio. A long, inky stroke across the lap chart. The legacy of a nudge from a hyper-excited Mike Kranefuss as he had drawn to my attention the progress of Benetton driver Johnny Herbert. It was not as if I hadn't been following him throughout, even...

A man of the people

Time is money to Eddie Jordan; usually it's someone else's time and certainly someone else's money. "Money is nonstop", he says cheerfully, and so is he. Any conversation with him that lasts more than 10 minutes is inevitably interrupted. This time it's yet another phone call, for which he excuses himself politely. "That'll be another $3.5 million if they want it," he says brusquely, a man used...

Historic Season Preview 2000

For the historic motor racing fan this season promises to be the biggest and best yet. Marcus Pye looks ahead for ways to while away a summer weekend History, by its very definition, grows inexorably. Every segment of time consigns its predecessor to the past, leaving memories spanning the full gamut of emotions. The duration of a calendar is pre-defined, for a year is a year, but the pace of...

Modern times

Press schedules being what they are, I am writing this before, and you're reading it after, the Argentinian Grand Prix. But, going by the form of the first two rounds of this season, it seems a pretty safe bet that McLaren-Mercedes will maintain their crushing early-season form for a while. Unfortunately, that means we'll have to endure more wailing and whingeing from the newer members of Formula...
