Alonso to McLaren

Reigning World Champion Fernando Alonso has kickstarted potentially the craziest silly season of all time by switching from Renault to McLaren for the 2007 Formula One campaign. The Spaniard will defend his crown this year with Renault, but his switch to the Mercedes-powered McLaren squad for next year was announced in the run-up to Christmas. The news came as a shock, especially bearing in mind...

XXV Monaco Grand Prix

A well deserved victory Monte Carlo, May 7th. It is now just one whole year since the present Grand Prix Formula really got under way, for this time last year the Monaco Grand Prix saw the first big outing of the 3-litre Formula One cars and while 1966 saw some ups and downs 1967 is showing terrific progress. Although this year's Monaco G.P. was the first Championship event in Europe it was not...

XXI Belgian Grand Prix

A fine win for Lotus Spa, Belgium, June 17th. The wonderful 14.1-kilometre circuit that runs between Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot, in the hills near Spa, needs little introduction to followers of Grand Prix racing, and this year everyone was looking forward to the Belgian G.P. with keen anticipation as it was to be the first time that the new British Grand Prix V8 engines could be wound up...

36th Italian Grand Prix

That Apprentice from Scotland Monza, Italy, September 12th With no major Grand Prix race since the German Grand Prix at the beginning of August, the factory teams had plenty of time to prepare themselves for the annual high-speed race at Monza, on the 5.75-kilometre road circuit. A very full entry was received and Lotus, Brabham, Ferrari and Centro-Sud fielded three-car teams, the Ferrari one...

Three Formula Two Races

Rouen (July 9th) Most of the star Grand Prix drivers were taking part in this race, except for Gurney who does not approve of top league drivers playing in a lesser league, so that Ferrari's first sortie with his new car and new driver had little chance of shining. This was Jonathan Williams' first Formula Two race in any car, so he was left rather breathless by Clark, Hill, Stewart, Brabham,...

Formula One scene

Ready for Rio! On April 3 the 1988 Grand Prix season opens with the running of the Brazilian Grand Prix in Rio de Janeiro, on the very flat circuit on the edge of the city. The major teams have already spent a fair bit of time thrashing round the circuit testing their new cars, new engines or new drivers, and some of them will have flown back for further testing at Imola. When they all turn up on...

Grand Prix of United States

B.R.M. first and second with the old cars. Watkins Glen, Sunday, October 6th. The 1963 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen was freed this year from all World Championships considerations in so far that Clark and Lotus had clinched this year's Championship at Monza. This race counted for itself only, and all outside considerations could be put aside. The entry was the best yet as all teams...

XIX Grand Prix of Monaco

What a race ! Monte Carlo, May 14th. With no races being held in the Argentine this year the Monaco GP was the first Grande Epreuve of the season and naturally everyone wanted to be in it but, as usual, the number of cars permitted to start on the narrow and twisting 3.145-km circuit was limited to sixteen. This year a different arrangement of selection was used, in place of the previous idea of...

Lewis Hamilton: The Senna connection

Beyond the obvious parallels – both McLaren drivers, both arguably the best of their generation – the young Briton feels he has a special bond with the great Brazilian By Nigel Roebuck "This place,” says Lewis Hamilton, gazing out over Spa-Francorchamps from the top floor of the McLaren emporium, “is so fantastic…” “Your favourite circuit?” I ask. “Not quite,” he replies, “but second, after...
