XIII Gran Premio Napoli

Another Bad Day for Ferrari Naples, May 6th. It seems that neither the English nor the Italians can ever take any notice of one another's calendar, for once more the Naples Grand Prix was held the same weekend as the International Trophy at Silverstone. The Continental teams of Ferrari and Gordini divided their interests, while Maserati refrained from entering at either race. The first practice...

– Why Fernando Alonso is simply the best – How Alain Prost stoked the wrath of Ron Dennis – Mosport Park one day, Brands Hatch the next – The Rothmans 50,000: good idea, poor execution These days it always surprises me to hear Formula 1 drivers enthusing about the Hungaroring. It is very ‘technical’, they say, and satisfying to get into a low there. By contrast, in 1986, the year of the first...

48th French Grand Prix

A Race of Surprises Rouen-Les Essarts, July 8th. Every five years the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. leaves the Reims circuit and is held at Rouen-Les-Essarts, having done so in 1952, 1957 and now in 1962. The Rouen circuit does not have the amenities nor the grandness and atmosphere of Reims, but the circuit itself is one of the best in Europe from the point of view of driving and spectating. All the...

Brown-eyed handsome man

He was blessed with looks, charisma and speed and rivals thought the world of him. He won but a single World Championship Grand Prix, but there was more to Lorenzo Bandini than such simple statistics imply Writer: Nigel Roebuck Lorenzo Bandini... Such a mellifluous name for a racing driver, it always seemed to me, like Clay Regazzoni or Johnny Servoz-Gavin. And they all looked the part, too....

Tony Brooks looks back

SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO, the chance of a British car winning a World Championship Grand Prix was unlikely, the prospect of that state of affairs changing looked remarkably dim. With Mercedes-Benz and Maserati having a virtual stranglehold on the World Championship series, British efforts in no way matched up to the Continental opposition. BRM's effort usually resulted in a few fleeting moments of...

Italian pride shines bright at the start of a new World Championship, but 10 years later the British turn F1 on its head – and back to frontBy Doug Nye GiovanBattista Guidotti was a jovial, charming old gentleman. He was a racer right from his toecaps to his fingertips. But he came from a different era. Before World War II he had been a mechanic, tester, and eventually capo collaudatore – chief...

The road to Morocco

He was Vanwall's number three to Moss and Brooks, but as Robert Edwards relates, Stuart Lewis-Evans could be challenge either man It was a subdued and depressing flight back from Casablanca in the BEA Viscount. The Grand Prix from which it was returning, the decider of the season, had delivered two long-awaited firsts to British motor racing; those of the first British world drivers' champion,...

The 44th Grand Prix de l'ACF

IF any spectator has the feeling that he is being starved of motor racing then he should pay a visit to Reims at the time of the French Grand Prix. This year there was a 12-Hour race for Gran Turismo cars, a 30-lap race for Formula 2 cars and a 50-lap race for Formula 1 cars, the last event being the 44th French Grand Prix and being France's contribution to the World Championship series....

REFLECTIONS Why Schumacher should have been banned It’s time to change the rule on team orders Watching the Edmonton IndyCar race on TV, I was more than a touch nonplussed when Hélio Castroneves was given a penalty in the late laps for allegedly blocking his Penske team-mate Will Power immediately after a restart. This cost Castroneves the race, and afterwards he freely advised officials of his...

Continental notes

Jenks on safety, '58 The past two months have been sad ones for grand prix racing, for first Luigi Musso was killed and then Peter Collins, while earlier in the year Archie Scott Brown lost his life. On each occasion a post mortem of the accidents suggested that the actual death was caused by a definite object; with Scott Brown it was a signpost, with Musso a ditch, with Collins a tree; and after...
