Editorial

At 200mph, you and I would be transfixed, white-knuckling the steering wheel, holding our breath, fearing to blink lest we missed some vital visual clue. But for Michele Alboreto, travelling at such velocities was almost an everyday experience. His shoulders and arms would've been relaxed, his eyes flicking down into the cockpit taking in readouts, his mind filing away information to be passed on...

No Sweat

Back in 1989, the Formula One field contained eight graduates from the previous season's European Formula 3000 Championship. This year, at the time of writing, there are only two. One, aided by an abundance of talent and a pot of gold from Arisco, is Rubens Barrichello.

As fate would have it

Patrick Tambay seemed to have little control over the direction of his rollercoaster — and successful — career. He talks to Marcus Simmons He moved through motorsport like the hero in a Voltaire novel, his career seemingly shaped by destiny, a series of chance happenings and the recurrent reappearances of several figures who would disappear out of his story only to be reprised years later just...

The Formula One Scene

The last two years have seen some semblance of respectability return to Formula One racing, so that one could justifiably call it Grand Prix racing once more. The petty bickering that went on amongst the small-time entrepreneurs who posed as businessmen has largely disappeared for the simple fact that some of the "performers" have gone and their places have been taken by industrial concerns of...
