Canadian Grand Prix

A Race to the Finish Montreal, September 30th Last year the Canadians organised a re-vitalised Grand Prix on a temporary circuit around the roads on an island in the St Lawrence river where it passes through Montreal. The fact that the home-town boy Gilles Villeneuve won it for Ferrari was eminently satisfactory for all concerned, but two features seemed to mar the event, one being the tightness...

The Austrian Grand Prix

A Well-Earned Victory – Knittelfeld, August 14th In spite of the Osterreichring being in the middle of the country and difficult of access, from whichever direction you approach, few people miss the annual visit to the very scenic circuit. After the slow, twisty circuits like Monaco and Zolder the high-speed corners of the Osterreichring are refreshing, and after the stadium of Hockenheimring it...

Formula 1 season preview podcast Rob Widdows: Just returning to last month’s magazine and the Formula 1 Revolution. Do we honestly think that any of the ideas that we’ve put forward are likely to happen? Mark Hughes: Yes Comrade… I think it’s more to put it out there and it seems to have struck a chord with a lot of followers of the sport. There’s definitely been a bit of a reaction since the...

Notes on the cars in Brazil

The results of the six months testing and development carried out by the teams since the last race of 1982, was clearly seen in the Brazilian paddock, with new designs, revamped cars, engine installations, new colours, new names, new sponsors and an on. Not for a long time has a new season started with so much interest, occasioned partly by the new FISA rules banning under-car aerodynamics within...

The fresher under pressure

The jump from F3 to F1 has always been tough; in the turbo era it was a giant leap. Alan Henry reflects on the gamble Toleman took with a low-cost hart engine and Rookie Ayrton Senna If Formula One power output was measured exclusively in terms of brake horsepower per pound sterling expended, then there would be no question as to who produced the best grand prix engines over the past 20 years....

South African Grand Prix

First win for a Yardley McLaren Kyalami, March 4th. Relieved of its usual status of being the first World Championship event of the year, the South African event nevertheless proved to be a great success. The 26-car field was watched by a record crowd and the race proved to be a succession of exciting battles for the lead which, finally, resulted in victory for Hulme in a Yardley-sponsored...

His Formula 1 career lasted a remarkable 17 seasons, during which there were some dark moments but also six well-deserved wins. And through it all, Patrese emerged as one of the good guysBy Simon Taylor Riccardo Patrese is an enigma.

The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

Reflections – Why team-mates rarely co-exist in harmony – Max Mosley’s “last big project” in Formula 1 Bernie Ecclestone was ever to the point. “I remember years ago, when Senna and Berger were team-mates at McLaren, I sat down with Gerhard once, and he was nearly in tears. He said to me, ‘I’m going to stop’. He said that if he closed his eyes, and dreamed the most incredible lap of his life, he...
