Home alone

Martin Brundle starred at Magny-Cours, but how much advantage is it to race at your own test track? Sitting in a composite projectile at 180 mph tends to rather focus a driver's attention, but throughout the last lap of the French Grand Prix David Coulthard had Martin Brundle's Ligier on his tail, and something else on his mind. The night before the race the Scot had dreamt that he spun in the...

Great British achievements

The Editor describes the M.G. Magnette Victory in the 1933 Mille Miglia.

Among team managers he had a reputation for arrogance, a quick temper and unreasonable demands — it was a reputation which was probably deserved early in his career, but the Henton I've known over the past six years has been the antithesis of that reputation, a charming, humorous man, with no side and completely...
