Notes on the cars and teams at Imola

Now that the Grand Prix season has begun in Europe and teams can work from their home bases we should see some interesting strides forwards in the mechanical scene in the paddock. For the first three races everyone was "on tour" leading a gypsy-like existence which made it impossible to do much in the way of serious development. The craze of the moment to develop ways of cheating the "no-skirt"...

Notes on the cars at Kyalami

Lotus: The Martini Team Lotus produced a brand new car for Andretti, Lotus 79/5 (or ML 23 by the factory’s odd numbering!) to exactly the same specification as the previous cars, and presumably put together during breaks from finishing off the first Lotus 80. Reutemann still had Lotus 79/2 and Andretti’s previous car 79/4 was the team spare. All three carried the name ESSEX on the sides, the name...

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 Austrian Grand Prix

A French Festival Österreichring, Knittelfeld, August 16th The pits and paddock were well filled by Friday morning, to see the start of testing under blue skies and in warm sunshine, though there was a small gap where the Fittipaldi team should have been. Although they assured some people they would be there they opted out at the last moment due to financial problems. This meant that there were...

Reluctant hero

He pulled Niki Lauda from the wreckage of his blazing Ferrari, fought in Vietnam and now pilots humanitarian flights for seriously ill children, but Brett Lunger plays down his many achievements… Writer Andrew Marriott Brett Lunger has always been understated, self-analytical, supremely fit and serious. That was his manner back in the 1970s when I handled his public relations in Europe and now,...

The Argentine Grand Prix

A good start Buenos Aires, January 13th With Christmas and the New Year over the Formula One scene was soon in full swing and air freighters-were taking the cars to South America for the first of the 1980 races, with the drivers and team personnel soon following, clutching their Enteroviaform and Ambre Solaire, for the Argentinian food and summer, respectively. As the 1979 season ended there were...

1975 Dutch Grand Prix report

An Englishman wins Zandvoort, June 22nd Everyone went to the seaside circuit in Holland resigned to the fact that the Dutch Grand Prix would be another Ferrari walk-over. Memories of the way Lauda and Regazzoni had dominated the 1974 race still lingered uncomfortably in the minds of the Cosworth V8 users, even though the massacre was avenged later in the season. The 1975 Ferraris, with their ever...

Notes on the cars at Zandvoort

Williams: The official announcement in Austria that Frank Williams had concluded a deal with the Honda Motor Company of Tokyo to use their engines for 1984, with an experimental probe into the realms of turbo-charged power for the remainder of this season, was welcomed by everyone. It was just over a year ago that Frank Williams disappeared on the Saturday afternoon of the Dutch Grand Prix and...

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...

Nigel Roebuck

Reflections – Moss and Jenks’s record average speed run – An F1 deal, Schuey, and a pain in the neck… – Reasons for BMW to follow Honda out of F1 ’ll tell you something amazing,” said Stirling Moss. “Well, I thought it was amazing, anyway – for some reason I only realised the other week, and it absolutely staggered me…” We were chatting about May 1, 1955, which many regard as Stirling’s day of...
