Schumacher moves closer. On his return from suspension the World Championship leader extends his advantage, as Mansell's comeback fizzles. The folly of Jerez as a Grand Prix track was never better illustrated than on the afternoon of Sunday, October 16. The sherry region's idea of a racetrack provided many of the safety facilities that were so conspicuously lacking when Martin Donnelly had his...

Kimi's move to Ferrari recalls other feisty driver pairings; Shell film rekindles the bravery that the old Spa demanded, and Brundle goes back to the Fifties with boot polish For the majority of Formula 1 fans, I like to think, that fortnight encompassing Spa and Monza remains the core of any Grand Prix season. As long-time enthusiast Clive James remarked in his column in the Telegraph, “When the...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

— An air of foreboding Zolder, May 9th WITH the Imola "strikers" returned to the lucrative world of Formula One, the Belgian entry was full to overflowing, but their union shop-steward made it clear that he and his men intended to employ "disruptive methods" and protest against anything and everything. Consequently, although the entire entry was ready to go on Friday morning a lot of people were...

Lunch with... Jo Ramirez

The personable Mexican looks back over 40 years of Formula 1 glories and struggles, friendships and tragedies By Simon Taylor The problem is, lunch isn’t long enough. Over 40 seasons, this man has been friend and confidant to a succession of F1 heroes, helped them celebrate their victories and, too often, mourned their loss. He was inside Ferrari when it was Enzo’s fiefdom, with Tyrrell when Ken’...

As The Sun Went Down

Taken overall the annual Monaco GP round the streets of Monte Carlo never really got off the ground. As a modern Grand Prix race the Monaco event is something of an anachronism which the Formula One circus tolerates for various obscure reasons, but if we had to be there every month instead of once a year, I feel a lot of us could go off Formula One.

Opposites attack

Interlagos, first round of the 1976 championship, the dying moments of final qualifying. There's a face-to-face row going on in the McLaren pit. Team boss Teddy Mayer and his new driver James Hunt are screaming at each other. "He wanted the windscreen further forward," recalls Mayer, "so that he was more comfortable." With the minutes ticking away and Nild Lauda's Ferrari on pole as usual, Teddy...

Objectives of Desiré

Desiré Wilson could mix it with the best in single-seaters and sportscars. Richard Heseltine charts why, given a change of luck, she could have been a Formula One star A few weeks after storming the Brickyard in May, Dan Wheldon arrived for the Indycar race at the Texas Motor Speedway wearing a T-shirt announcing, 'Actually, I won the Indy 500'. While this could be interpreted as glory-mongering...

The Same, Only Different

The weather did its best to destroy both the French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours on July 5 and the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 12 but it failed on both occasions. The French Grand Prix, or Grand Prix de France, which started life as the Grand Prix de Automobile Club de France in 1906 and only changed its title in recent years to conform with the rest of the world, was the event that...
