Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory. In fact, such comments do less than justice to the popular New Zealander who, although only turned 40 last summer, has been out of the Grand Prix arena for almost...

The United States GP

Lauda rounds it off - Watkins Glen, October 5th Last year's United States Grand Prix proved to be a very significant race as it started with Clay Regazzoni, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jody Scheckter all retaining a mathematical chance of winning the World Championship title. In the event, Emerson Fittipaldi became World Champion for the second time by the consistent, rather than spectacular,...

Love him, hate him... He didn't give a damn

And he still doesn’t. Notorious Nelson Piquet stoked both anger and admiration on his way to three F1 titles. Images linger of a crass troublemaker – but lest we forget, he was defiantly talented, too Let’s admit it from the start. I like and admire Nelson Piquet. It can be a trying experience, though, to be unmasked as a Piquet supporter, so let’s remind ourselves of his extraordinary talent. He...

Indianapolis 500

A rookie at the Brickyard After twenty-five years in motor racing, I suddenly found myself a "rookie" — American for a first-timer. I had, in fact, been to the famous track they call the Brickyard once before, but not in the hallowed month of May. Everything felt so different that I really did feel like a newcomer. The Indianapolis 500 is, after all, the world's richest motor race, with a total...

Zanardi sets new target the Indy 500

Double Indycar champion, Formula 1 racer and now a Paralympic medal-winner – two golds and a silver: is there anything Alex Zanardi cannot do? He conquered the hand-cycling course at Brands Hatch at the age of 45, and now he is eyeing a remarkable return to his first sport with a shot at the Indianapolis 500 in 2013. When Zanardi lost his legs in September 2001 in a horrific Champ Car crash at...

Legends Mo Nunn

When Niki Lauda was recently sacked by Jaguar Racing, he joined a long list of great drivers who, for whatever reason, have failed to stay the course as a team principal. Lauda was in the job just 15 months, a little longer than his predecessor, Bobby Rahal. Oddly enough, good, rather than great, drivers tend to fare better in management. If Roger Penske, businessman supreme, is the most obvious...

Brian Henton

At thirty-six-years old, Brian Henton can probably best be described as one of international motor racing's eternal optimists. Over the past 12 years he has won championships in Formula Vee, Super Vee, F3 and F2, but always seems to have been thwarted in his efforts to establish himself in Formula One. Last year, as Michele Alboreto's partner in the Tyrrell line-up, he demonstrated a solid...

The Ickx factor

He had the talent to be Formula One World Champion, but did he lack the ambition? Adam Cooper talks to the quixotic Mister Ickx Compile a list of 'Formula One champions who never were' and it's sure to be headed by Stirling Moss, with Ronnie Peterson and Gilles Villeneuve close behind. It's all too easy to overlook a man whose career was not cut short by an accident, but who never quite managed...

Alain Prost

Alain Prost An interview with the new World Champion pIERGUIDO CasteIli wasn't remotely interested in the scene outside the technical centre. The excited babble of 200 anxious pressmen and photographers at the gates of Fiorano left him cold. Alain Prost was about to have his first run in a Ferrari, but CasteIli had no intention of watching the run itself. Instead, he was off to watch the...

Letter from South America

Dear D.S.J. When I arrived in Argentina I began thinking about the old saying which goes "the Good Lord smiles on the righteous". In South Africa (where you didn't come), it poured with rain; in Brazil (where you didn't come again), it poured with rain. In Long Beach (where you did come), we were bathed in sunshine. Surely, I thought, it won't rain in Argentina. Well, it did. The two practice...
