Cotton On....

Whither Mercedes? If anyone is wondering how serious is Mercedes' involvement in motor racing today, they should note the reaction of the firm's public relations manager, Bernd Harling, when I speculated that, "if Mercedes wins at Le Mans next year . . . ". He cut me short: "When Mercedes wins at Le Mans next year!" From that source, I thought I should take serious note. Harling is a member of...

A whiff of success

Aftershave sponsorship landed single-seat specialist Chip Ganassi a drive for Sauber at Le Mans in 1987 – but it soon evaporated… By Gary Watkins Chip Ganassi wasn’t an obvious candidate for a pseudo-factory drive at the Le Mans 24 Hours. After all, the 29-year-old American, then sitting on the sidelines after six part-seasons of Indy Car racing, had only a handful of sports car races under his...

Fears Of A Clown

One of the old guard who should move over for youth, or the finest unfulfilled talent of his generation? Mark Skewis takes a look at Johnny Herbert's F1 career. Of the ridiculously small percentage of racing drivers who make it to Formula One, precious few ever win a Grand Prix: fewer still get to achieve that feat in front of their home crowd. Which was why, when Johnny Herbert crossed the...

Twenty years ago the marque teamed up with Sauber to produce the C11 – a car that ruled all and influenced a return to F1By Gary Watkins The first pure-bred Mercedes-Benz racer for 35 years.

Around and About

Sports Car Driver Shuffles As Martin Brundle returns to the Brabham Formula 1 team, his place with Silk Cut Jaguar has been taken by Derek Warwick who resigned from Lotus. Warwick, 36, was almost a founder member of the Tom Walkinshaw directed Jaguar Group C programme, having driven the XJR-6 to its first victory at Silverstone in May 1986. At the end of that season, he missed the Drivers'...

On a whim and a prayer...

For weeks on end the success of the 1992 Sportscar World Championship depended on the whim of the Sultan of Dubai, and on March 2 he extinguished Alan Randall's dream with a telex pulling out of a sponsorship deal that would have bought nine Jaguar XJR Group C cars from Tom Walkinshaw, and propped up the ailing series. It was ridiculous, of course, that the World Championship should have hung by...

WSC -- Silverstone 430 km

The Power Without the Prize British spectators could see for themselves, at Silverstone on May 19, that the Silk Cut Jaguar team has set out in callous fashion to humble Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot on the circuits. At Silverstone, like Suzuka and like Monza, the new XJR-14s were on average four seconds per lap quicker than their main rivals, and that's the sort of timespan that should separate the...

Formula One Scene

Engines I have always said there is never a dull moment in Formula One, and if there is it is of your own making. With teams from all over the world involved, drivers from Brazil to Japan and Australia to Finland taking part as well as an equal mix in all parts of the periphery of Formula One it has little hope of being dull. Shambolic it may be at times, dangerous it certainly is, riotous and...

Confidence Restored

It was like a dream come true for the entire Silk Cut Jaguar team as the two XJR-11s swept to victory at Silverstone on May 20th. It was 19 months since the last success, at Fuji in October 1988, and the first with the new turbocharged cars that were so troublesome in their first year. Martin Brundle and Alain Ferte took the flag a lap ahead of Jan Lammers and Andy Wallace, and so maintained...
