Behind Mercedes’ last Le Mans

A fatal design flaw that led to three spectacular accidents scuppered the Silver Arrows' attempt to win Le Mans almost 20 years ago, leaving the team so badly bruised it has never returned. It is an episode the German marque would rather forget, but previously unseen photographs have now emerged giving unprecedented insight into what happened on that fateful weekend at the Circuit de la Sarthe...

Precision

Timing is everything Split-second accuracy is fundamental to both motor sport and the finely honed world of watchmaking, so it’s hardly surprising that the two are highly complementary.

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Bigger than ever and glorious as always, the 22nd Festival was significantly more competitive than in recent years.

The nine-time world rally champion took fastest time of the weekend, but was still three seconds away from Nick...

Le Mans 24 Hours

In a sparkling new era of fuel efficiency and high technology, how fitting that Le Mans should be the scene of a 24 Hours that harked back to how it used to be. We’ve taken astounding levels of reliability for granted in recent years, as top-line drivers select sprint mode for the great enduro, despite the length, duration and grind that awaits them. But this time, each of the ‘big three’ proved...

Matters of moment

We’ve been gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response to our Time for a Formula 1 Revolution cover story, run in the April issue. We published our framework for change on the conviction that the majority of Motor Sport’s readers have become disenchanted with the artifice of modern Grand Prix racing, and judging by the feedback our instincts were on the mark. The response from the...

Alonso expected to stay at Renault

The final gaps in the 2009 F1 entry list will be plugged when Fernando Alonso finally confirms his plans after the Brazilian Grand Prix. The Spaniard told Motor Sport: “I know what to do 99 per cent, but after Brazil, everybody will know.” It is widely assumed he will stay at Renault rather than take up an offer from Honda, the team’s recent surge in form having tipped the balance in Flavio...

In Germany the Renault driver ran a longer first stint than anyone else and was able to pit just seconds before a safety car came out.
