A sense of perspective The Ferrari conundrum Farewell to a friend Back in 1964 three British drivers – Jim Clark, Graham Hill, John Surtees – went to the final Grand Prix, in Mexico, to settle the world championship. In the end the title went to Surtees, after Clark’s Lotus had led all the way until its engine seized on the last lap, and Hill’s BRM had been delayed by a coming-together with...

Warring team-mates, matters acoustic, Senna and Ferrari When Jochen Rindt’s Lotus crashed massively at Montjuich in 1969, he was extraordinarily fortunate to escape with relatively light injuries. This was the time of the ludicrous ‘tall’ wings, and the flimsy supports on Rindt’s car simply collapsed, as they had – a few minutes earlier, at the same spot – on the sister car of Graham Hill, the...

Fangio denied Tourist Trophy win by inspired Hales

The Fangio family's Goodwood jinx returned at the sixth annual Revival Meeting. The great Juan Manuel never won at the track, but his nephew Juan Manuel II looked set to nip this trait in the bud on his first appearance there — until the last lap but one. The lightweight E-type Fangio was sharing with Gary Pearson in the one-hour TT Celebration race was initially involved in a spectacular fight...

Lucky strike

If Juan Manuel Fangio's first race at Monaco was stunning, his first race lap was unbelievable. Shaun Campbell recalls Fangio's 'lucky' debut win. Juan Manuel Fangio called it luck. A simple word, expressed with a shrug, to explain how he remained alive when so many of his friends and rivals didn't. It seems a hopelessly inadequate explanation, but then luck means different things to different...

Legends British GP 1955

The 2002 Formula One season may have been largely desultory, for many reasons, but for me it had its moments. Take Monza. I as good as knew that I was boarding yet another flight to witness yet another Ferrari victory, but John Prescott will be on nodding terms with his mother tongue before Monza loses its appeal for me. Denis Jenkinson always said that if he were allowed to attend only one race...

Blood red brothers

Bill Boddy recalls a time when Ferrari were the young upstarts. Their thrilling battle with the well-stablished and hugely successful Alfa Romeo team ensured that the just-launched Formula One World Championship got off to a flying start When war ended Motor Racing in Europe in 1939, the Grand Prix Formula stipulated cars of up to 4.5 litres with atmospheric induction of the fuel mixture, and up...

Reflections

By Nigel Roebuck For Rosberg, China win could be the first of many Jean-Pierre Beltoise’s only F1 victory, 40 years on During his very irst Grand Prix, at Bahrain in 2006, Nico Rosberg – then just 20 – set the fastest lap of the race, and did it, what’s more, in a Williams-Cosworth. No disrespect to Frank’s team, but this was long after its golden age had ended; no disrespect, either, to Cosworth...

Nigel Roebuck

Ni e Roebuck I ast month, in writing about Gilles Villeneuve, I railed against the statisticians in our sport — those whose opinions are shaped, more than anything else, by numbers. Through the history of motor racing, it seems to me, there has been many a defeat more glorious than many a victory, but for some such things — emotion, legend — count for little, and these people tend, too, to...

Reflections

Analysing one Rosberg, relecting upon another and fond memories of a chat with Ferrari’s first World Championship Grand Prix winner González, recently departed If the recent form of Nico Rosberg has caused many to re-evaluate a driver long considered something of an enigma in formula 1, so it has also inevitably put Michael Schumacher’s ‘second career’ into fresh perspective. it may have fallen...

Legends

When I was a kid, someone gave me an EP remember them? of the BRM V16 on full noise. I once told Stirling Moss about it. "I'm surprised," he said, "that it ran long enough to fill an EP" It was a fair point. To me, that is all the BRM V16 has ever been a noise. And while, granted, its exhaust note is arresting, it doesn't approach the cultured eight-cylinder scream of an Alfa Romeo 158, the car...
