Snapshots of Senna

Only a small number of journalists were allowed into Ayrton Senna’s world. Here, one of the favoured few recalls his early friendship – and final falling out – with the great BrazilianBy Mike Doodson One day, somebody will write a great full-length biography of Ayrton Senna da Silva. Let’s hope it won’t take the couple of centuries for that someone to compile the balanced, well-informed...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Suspended animation

Active suspension made a triumphant return at Kyalami, where Nigel Mansell ran away and hid As the dust settles once more on the parched Kyalami and the South African GP, we shall look back in the months to come and truly appreciate just how crushingly superior the Williams FW14Bs were. When Nigel Mansell spoke afterwards of his plan "to build a cushion of 20 seconds" you realised just how much...

The Editor Brings Together — Two B & M Aston-Martins

The Bamford and Martin Aston-Martins were made a long time ago, in quite small numbers, but interest in them has never been greater, thanks to the research into their history by the AMOC. Justifiably, because they were hand-built sporting cars of immaculate conception that made a considerable contribution to British competition success.. Consequently, I thought it would be worthwhile to bring...

Beyond Midway

When we got to the halfway point of the 1988 season, even the most disinterested follower of Formula One must have realised that McLaren International had won all eight races with its Honda-powered MP4/4. Since then it has won two more and its drivers, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, have been sharing the victories between themselves, quite often finishing first and second. You may wonder what...

Formula One scene: Australian GP

The end of an era Adelaide, November 13 On the face of it, it was all just another crushing McLaren-Honda demonstration run, as Ron Dennis' machines sped to their tenth 1-2 of a season in which the team has re-written the parameters of Formula One. Alain Prost apparently cruised to his seventh win of 1988 and another nine points, which brought his total to 105, although thanks to the silly...

Formula One: Japanese GP

The Wolf at the Door In the end, the slope on Suzuka's grid worked against Alain Prost, not just once, but twice. It allowed not only Ayrton Senna to roll his stalled McLaren forward sufficiently to restart twice, but also Satoru Nakajima to do likewise. Senna, of course, was the more significant threat to the Frenchman, but the Japanese Lotus driver was also to play a significant role . . ....

Fruits of passion

Eddie Jordan knows the mild taste of Formula One success. In 1996, he knows he has to get used to something a little stronger "Out of my way, you froggies," demanded Eddie Jordan, face creased with a mischievous grin, as he pushed his way into the Ligier awning. "I'd like to have a word with my driver! "Tom? Tom? Come out of there, you coward..." Had the object of his taunt, Tom Walkinshaw,...

Formula One -- United States GP

Senna's Warning Shot Senna and Honda Marlboro McLaren wrote themselves another slice of F1 history in Phoenix with a faultless performance which netted the Brazilian his 27th Grand Prix victory and, in the process, brought him level with Jackie Stewart's tally. To the consternation of its rivals, the new MP4/6 maintained the Woking team's already enviable record of success first time out,...

Saving The Best For Last

Honours well spread and a nail-biting finale for the IndyCar season, by David Phillips Did the 1996 PPG IndyCar World Series produce a champion, or simply a man who had accumulated more points than his rivals at the season's end? Whatever, it was set for a dramatic Laguna Seca finale thanks to a sequence of events at Vancouver which saw Michael Andretti score a dominant victory, Al Unser Jnr...
