The Grand Prix

A non-(championship) event As the 1984 Grand Prix season for the World Championships was not due to start until March 25th with the Brazilian GP, and all the important teams were ready and raring to go by the end of January, the FOCA supreme organised a non-championship race to give them a pre-season try-out. Unfortunately the only country prepared to take this non-event was behind the Iron...

All mod pros and cons

Rose-tinted spectacles are a wonderful invention, but they don’t always focus accurately. Modern life, then, is not necessarily rubbish… Writer Andrew Frankel Although it probably didn’t seem so at the time, as the grid assembled in Melbourne for the first Grand Prix of the new millennium, the world of Formula 1 was a somewhat simple place to be, at least relative to where it is today.

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...

Reflections in the Harbour

Due to production schedules, D.S.J.'s reflections and notes on the cars at Monaco appear before the main report of the race, which will be found in the colour section on page 932. There was plenty of time to reflect before the Monaco Grand Prix started, for the start was delayed something like an hour due to fire breaking out in one of the hotels situated within the circuit, and on race day...
