Emergency Answers

The winter months have been fairly quiet on the Formula One scene, which does not mean that nothing has been happening; far from it in fact, but much that has happened has been on the organising and management side of things. A major happening has been on the tyre front, much of it behind closed doors. Last year Goodyear supplied tyres for sixteen cars and Pirelli supplied eleven, and the fact...

Canadian Grand Prix

On two occasions now the Canadian Grand Prix at Montreal has underlined the fact that you can never ignore the Brabham team. Two years ago Nelson Piquet arrived from the previous weekend's Detroit Grand Prix having failed to qualify for the American event — and went straight out to score the Brabham-BMW BT50's maiden Grand Prix triumph. This year, after failing to finish in the first six races,...

Modern Times

At last! The Formula One carousel is about to turn once more. Melbourne is almost upon us. Misleading testing times, bland press releases, optimistic half-truths and gloating rumour ("the new Jaguar is four seconds a lap slower than last year's car") will finally be replaced by real practice, real qualifying and then real racing — the only yardstick that means anything at all. And, as always, the...

Francorchamps Monologue

The Belgian Grand Prix "Stand back, they are all going off on a warm-up lap. Bonnier is very late starting; something wrong with a rear-wheel fixing; did his mechanic strip the studs?" "Here they all come, lining up on the 'dummy-grid' now. They will have to wait for Bonnier; after all, he is the G.P.D.A. President, they could hardly start the race without him." "There's the 1-min. board; what a...

Dutch Grand Prix

Another Clark Benefit Zandvoort, July 18th THE Dutch Grand Prix is usually held in May and has been the first or second event in the World Drivers' Championship for several seasons, but this year it was moved to July, to become sixth in the 1965 series. The policy of the organisers now appears to he to try a different date each year, presumably to find which date attracts most spectators. They...

Grand Prix of the United States

Hat-trick for Hill Watkins Glen, Sunday, October 3rd. The World Drivers' Championship for 1965 was clinched before the G.P. circus crossed the Atlantic, so the U.S. Grand Prix, held for the fifth year in succession at the Watkins Glen Circuit, was not surrounded with quite so much daily paper "ballyhoo" as usual. Autumn at the Glen was not so far advanced as in some previous years and the...

The Season Underway

Now that we have had the first two races of the 1990 Formula One World Championship season we can take stock of reality and forget the rumours and surmise of the past winter. At the front nothing has changed much from last year, McLaren-Honda, Ferrari and Williams-Renault are setting the pace once again, with the same six drivers at the top, but slightly shuffled about as regards teams and...

World's most exclusive Gulf club

A keen collector craved a Ford GT40, but passion sometimes knows no bounds By Andrew Frankel Their names are 3707 Zenith Blue & 3957 Tangerine and on their own are just a couple of colours. But put them together with art and skill, apply them to the flowing surfaces of an aerodynamically honed racing car and something extraordinary happens. Mouths fall open, fingers point and young boys dream...

Clause for concern

The paragraphs highlighted in the FIA document above are at the core of Formula 1’s biggest scandal. McLaren has been fined 100 million dollars and stripped of its Constructor points, not for stealing designs, not for offering bribes, but for possibly gaining, through the actions of a disgruntled Ferrari employee, a theoretical intellectual advantage – an advantage which the FIA itself says would...

THE FORMULA ONE SCENE Regie Renault AT THE end of last season the Renault Formula One team reviewed its season and decided that changes had to be made. Main Prost had won races for the team, but it lost the Drivers' Championship to Nelson Piquet at the last moment, and it lost the Constructors' Championship to Ferrari, so altogether had not done very well. The outcome was that at short notice...
