Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey!By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Seats of yearning

It's a brisk autumnal afternoon in southwestern France, where in two hours' time the final round of the 1993 European Formula 3000 Championship will take place. In the Nogaro paddock, Gil de Ferran is staring morosely at a plate of pasta under the Paul Stewart Racing motorhome awning. "I really hate this time of year," explains the Brazilian. "It's alright for you guys who'll still be employed...

Fuels paradise

The opening rounds of this year's European F3000 Championship have contained several surprises, all but one of them welcome. The exception was the late decision -18 days before the race – to switch the third round of the series from Jerez to Barcelona, long after teams and other associates of the formula had committed money to non-returnable flight and hotel deposits, not to mention extensive...

Against expectations

  In the end, the Brazilian Grand Prix went against all expectations. Few would seriously have bet against the chances of Ayrton Senna, on his homeground, and the Williams-Renault. Even less so if you gave full credibility (and there was every justification to) to stories that the Brazilian had actually lapped Imola in recent testing another six-tenths of a second quicker than Michael Schumacher...

Taking the strain

Until lap 16 of the fifth round of the European F3000 Championship, the German GP support race at Hockenheim, David Coulthard appeared to be heading for an eight-point championship lead. Six days earlier, the Scot had taken his first F3000 victory at Enna, in bizarre circumstances of a kind which are unique to the outmoded Sicilian circuit. In Germany, infused with confidence, David was driving,...

Modern Times

These days, if you're a Formula One driver, here's what you do: you drive in 16 motor races a year. Each lasts for between 80 minutes and two hours. So, even if your car is reliable and your season reasonably accident-free, you probably won't clock up much more than 24 hours' actual racing in a full season plus, of course, some practice, qualifying and the inevitable testing. You'd probably do...

Lunch with...Allan McNish

At 18 McNish was hailed as the next Jackie Stewart; by 24 his single-seater career was in the doldrums. But the little Scot never gives up, and now a third Le Mans win beckons By Simon Taylor When Allan McNish was a wee pre-teen kart racer, his father gave him a piece of advice he’s never forgotten. “Dad said, ‘It’s not the good shots that make the good golfers. It’s the good recoveries. If you...

Simon Taylor: Modern Times

Justin Wilson's signing for Minardi has finally brought into F1 a young British driver whose talent and speed were in little doubt, even before he dominated Formula 3000 in 2001. Having scratched around for a decent drive ever since he won the F3000 championship, he is now bringing more than £2 million of sponsorship to Paul Stoddart's little team, and will himself be driving virtually for...
