Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio de Janeiro, March 25th In sharp contrast to previous years, the Formula 1 "close season" has been very much longer this winter, stretching from Kyalami in mid-October 1983 until the Brazilian Grand Prix opened the 1984 season on March 25th. In the past many teams have spent time moaning that the break is far too short, giving them nowhere near sufficient time to complete development...

Two weeks after Alain Prost opened the year with victory in the Brazilian grand Prix at Rio de Janeiro, the Porsche-built, TAG-engined McLaren MP4/2s enacted an...

Fighting chance

Years of hard-won knowledge, 'I can do better' Chutzpah and driver determined to get up off the floor, were the ingredients of this knockout win. By Nick Phillips Think Boxer and you probably think pugilist, perhaps dog, or maybe even Rebellion. But in racing circles early in 1977, it could mean only one thing the car which had, in Brian Henton's hands, pulled one of the most unexpected F2 wins...

Four x four by Williams

Frustrated by a lack of turbo power, Patrick Head & Co tried an extra driven axle for the FW08 instead. And it looked quick… Back in 1980-81 Renault and Ferrari put the turbocharged writing on the Formula 1 wall. The new forced-induction 1500cc engines set output levels which the naturally-aspirated 3-litre Cosworth brigade could not match. Patrick Head of Williams approached Ferrari for use...

Readers' Letters

Sorry for Silverstone Sir, So Bernie has finally carried out his threat and Silverstone is no longer ‘the home of British motor sport’.

Living as I do within a stone’s throw of the track I have seen both what the Grand Prix has done for the region over the years, and also the huge strides...

Around and about

A challenge to Formula One?
