Full-frontal assault

Lancia-Ferrari D50 and Vanwall VW7: two icons from the end of F1's front-engined era. Simon Taylor gets a thrill and charts their history Side by side in the pitlane at Donington Park these virtual contemporaries look so different. One is tall, flowing, almost bloated. And proudly green. The other is low, tight, delicate. And unashamedly red. Shorn of their sponsors' shrieking schemes, every...

Enzo's Right-Hand Man

In the mid-1950s, Romolo Tavoni was faced with a choice: he could work alongside a tyrannical Enzo Ferrari...or get the sack. Fifty years on, he tells Chris Nixon he made the right decision. In January 1950 a young employee was called in to see the manager of the Credito Italiano bank in Modena. The bank had a new client and, keen to help out in any way, had offered the man's services to the firm...

Lunch with... Tony Brooks

Smooth, undramatic and always very fast, he remains one of the greatest Grand Prix drivers this country has ever produced writer Simon Taylor, photographer James Mitchell For today's Formula 1 drivers, the glare of the media spotlight is relentless.

The ghosts of Reims

An opportunity to run an Auto Union V12 at the French circuit triggered a nostalgia trip Iguess it happens to all enthusiasts. When you have a memory jam-packed with motor sporting stories, sights and sounds – both experienced first-hand and absorbed over years of reading and listening to our forebears – there are times when it doesn’t take much to trigger a brainstorm of nostalgia, and sometimes...

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena. Of the 427 entries, only 54 failed to turn up in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia for the official...

By Nigel Roebuck The happy surprise of Pastor Maldonado An emotional pilgrimage to Modena Given Adrian Newey’s unmatched ability to find downforce in places denied to others, you might reasonably have expected that the Circuit de Catalunya, with its long, fast corners, would have been heaven-sent for the Red Bulls. Mark Webber, after all, dominated the Spanish Grand Prix in 2010, and Sebastian...

The Monza 500-mile race

Europe has a bit of a go MONZA, ITALY, June 29th. WELL, well! After all the fuss and furore caused by certain members of the Union of Professional Racing Drivers last year about the 500-mile track race at Monza, a select little bunch of members of that moribund organisation, the U.P.P.I., turned up at Monza to take part in this year's track race. Last year they tried to be movie actors, T.V....

Stirling’s ice-cream special

Built by Maserati, paid for by an ice-cream maker and driven by Stirling Moss, the Eldorado Special should have been Europe's answer to the US invasion in the 1958 Race of Two Worlds at Monza. Doug Nye reflects Imagine, for a moment, that you're Stirling Moss. It's Sunday, 29 June, 1958, and despite your status as 'The Man' or perhaps because of it you have just become worried. You are immersed...

Over the Japanese Grand Prix weekend one concerned the 2012 World Championship calendar, in which the Bahrain GP is due to return following the cancellation of this year's race, due to what may be euphemistically termed 'unrest'. In light of recent events in Bahrain,...

Legends – Giancarlo Baghetti

There were but five laps remaining in the 1996 Australian Grand Prix when Jacques Villeneuve got the message from the Williams pit: his oil pressure was falling, and if he were to finish the race he needed to back off. Galling, this, for it meant surrendering the lead to team-mate Damon Hill. Already he had become only the third driver in history (joining Mario Andretti and Carlos Reutemann) to...
