Lunch With... Paul Tracy

This ever-determined, hard-charging Indycar driver didn’t always mind his Ps and Qs but invariably gave his all in the cockpit Writer Simon Taylor | Photographer Michael McNamara These days your average professional racing driver tends to be slight and slender. He is unfailingly polite to team personnel, to sponsors and to rivals, and speaks to the media in unexceptional sound-bites while a PR...

Right man for the job The feeling in the media centre after this year’s 98th Indianapolis 500 was that the right driver and team won the race. Ryan Hunter-Reay dominated the second half of this year’s fiercely competitive 500 aboard one of five Honda-powered Andretti Autosport entries. By winning a heated duel with Helio Castroneves and team-mate Marco Andretti, the 2012 IndyCar champion cast...

“We haven’t always seen eye to eye, have we?”

David Coulthard wasn’t pulling any punches when he met with our writer, but then the Scot has had to fight for recognition throughout his career. Yet he leaves Formula 1 happy with his achievements and with his integrity intactBy Alan Henry It’s April 1, 2001. The scene is Interlagos, that bruising and buffeting 2.67-mile ribbon of careworn asphalt which has been such an essential part of the...

1993 French Grand Prix race report - Perfect for Prost

  Damon Hill spoiled Prost's 1993 record of pole positions, but come race day it was back to the familiar script Sooner or later, Damon Hill is going to win a Grand Prix. That's what we said after Spain, and a lot more people were saying it after Magny-Cours. Oh, Alain first added number 49 to his bulging stash of F1 victories and stretched his all-time French GP wins mark to six (Fangio and...

Lunch with... Rick Mears

The great American racer not only won four Indianapolis 500s, but remains one of the most modest men in racing to this day By Simon Taylor These Lunch With.... pieces start out as long and often colourful one-to-one conversations, over a pleasant meal. But they end up in black and white, as printed words. So I can give you what the man says, but sometimes it's harder to communicate how he says it...

You were there

States school

And so the Nigel Mansell express was derailed at Mid-Ohio. Like Alain Prost, Mansell started the weekend of September 12 poised to clinch a championship. Unlike Prost, however, Mansell knew almost instantly on that Sunday that he'd have to wait at least another weekend (the Nazareth round took place as this issue of Motor Sport was being printed) before being crowned 1993 champion. With Mansells...

1993 British Grand Prix race report - Hill makes a point

  Xenophobia, team tactics and a very small crowd; the first Mansell-less British GP since 1981 broke some new ground, but the end result was familiar In the end, all the pre-race hype about team tactics became academic, but while it lasted the long-anticipated showdown between Williams-Renault team's Damon Hill and Alain Prost was really quite a humdinger.

Cardinal Senna

Prost dominated, but when the rains came it was Senna who stole the show to rack up McLaren's 100th victory For its first 29 laps the Brazilian GP ran according to the script that had been written the moment that Alain Prost and Damon Hill in their Williams FW15Cs began to decimate their opposition in qualifying. The Frenchman had been on pole – his 22nd – with the Englishman a fraction under one...

A racer in his own right

Motor racing glory runs in the Hill family, but Damon is determined not to bask in his father's shadow Not since Jackie Stewart stepped into a BRM back in 1965 has a British driver graduated to F1 with such good equipment, so early in his career. And nobody is more aware of the magnitude of the opportunity presented to him than Damon Hill. For weeks the prospect of getting the second Williams-...
