European Letter

(By means of which our European reporter occasionally keeps in touch with the Editor.) Dear W.B., For a change I am starting to write this one from the offshore island of Great Britain, instead of the Mainland of Europe, the reason being that I went on strike and flatly refused to go and watch the German GP being run at the Hockenheim Stadium. Over the past months we have heard various out-...

Grand Touring cars for '93

Just as we have been advocating since January 1989, GT Supercars will be admitted to the Sportscar World Championship. This will come about next season. The mechanism to introduce cars like the Ferrari F40, the Jaguar XJ220 and the Porsche 911 was confirmed by Ecclesley at Monza on April 23, and will be ratified by FISA's Motorsports World Council in Paris on June 23. Tom Walkinshaw has indicated...

Matters of moment

Unspectacular, and unnecessary At a pre-season press briefing, Max Mosley spoke confidently about the FIA's chances of avoiding the type of technical controversy which so marred the 1994 season. When Formula One kicks into life, at Interlagos on March 26, we trust that his optimism proves to have solid foundations. We remain at odds, however, with his continued defence of refuelling as part of F1...

Series confirmed

The Sportscar World Championship was confirmed by FISA on January 20, but it was a touch-and-go matter. President Mosley asked the World Council to vote by telex on a proposal to run the SWC without precondition, and he got a substantial majority. In effect, he asked the World Council to overturn two major decisions taken as recently as December 5 (a) not to insist on a minimum of 20 cars...

Is the end nigh?

Dear reader, I was hoping to be at the first Grand Prix in the year 2000, which is only seven years away, but it is beginning to look rather unlikely. Recent rule changes for Formula One cars, and for Grand Prix races, seem to be aimed at a watering-down process to stifle technical progress and to stultify the performance factor of new Grand Prix cars, but that is nothing new. Since 1948 I have...

Budget for Success

Sir, No doubt in common with many lifelong followers of motorsport I frequently find my mind, when it ought to be concentrating on other things, drifting off to ruminate upon the current lows and woes of Grand Prix racing: the total domination of the Big Four (a 100% winning record in more than the last one hundred and fifty races); the rather patchy performance of the midfield teams; the...

Behind the Grand Prix Scene

ELF NO MATTER where you go for a Formula 1 World Championship Grand Prix you will be conscious of the name ELF, principally on the factory Renault cars, but also on petrol tankers in the paddock, oil containers, drivers' overalls, circuit advertising, hospitality units and on a myriad of cars in the lesser categories of the supporting races. There may only be three letters in the name ELF but...

Paperwork that is a joy The race records of teams like Cooper Cars are as good as any photograph when it comes to providing a fascinating look at the Grands Prix of yesterday I couldn’t help but think as I watched the Bahrain Grand Prix run on an expanse of asphalt and sand rendering the TV images as dull as the tedious non-race itself, how much charm has been squeezed out of modern sport. I...

Delirium Tremens

Dirty - Yet more politics in F1 With the 1993 Grand Prix_season-fast approaching, Formula On. is not exactly a happy ship ... Why exactly are so many people getting hot under the collar? It's a happy little world at present, Formula One. First we had Nigel Mansell quitting Williams amidst much wailing and gnashing of teeth. More recently, however, more fundamental issues have arisen. There's been...
