Omnipotence Reigns!

It was predictable, really, that the Sauber Mercedes team would return to Dijon-Prenois in a determined mood. Last year's result was the one blot on the team's record sheet, and that was motive enough. Then, Sauber had the luxury of developing and testing the C11 right through June, when all the rival teams were preparing for Le Mans and recovering from the ordeal. The result? Mercedes' third 1-2...

French resistance

AGS emerged from behind Henri Julien’s garage in the south of France, made the grade in Formula 2, flowered briefly in F1, and was gone By Johnny Tipler When the boules clack under the plane trees in sleepy Gonfaron I won’t look at those old boys by the fountain in quite the same way again. One of them has quaffed champagne with Alain Prost and tasted international success in Formula 2. He’s...

Tyrrell's Trophy

Ken Tyrrell's Formula One team now has an unassailable points lead in the Colin Chapman Cup for non-turbo cars, its Cosworth DFZ-engined machines having scored 102 points by the end of the Hungarian GP in the hands of Jonathan Palmer and Philippe Streiff. The only other cars contesting this category in 1987 are the March 871 of Ivan Capelli, the Lola LC87 of Philippe Alliot and the AGS of Pascal...

Birmingham Super Prix

History from the heart of England It finally happened. After years of effort and disappointment, Birmingham had its race. Motor racing has been with us for ninety years but we, in mainland Britain, had never before been able to see it take place on the streets of a city. Some events become great occasions, regardless of the degree of competition. The Birmingham race has the ingredients to become...

Formula One scene

Ready for Rio! On April 3 the 1988 Grand Prix season opens with the running of the Brazilian Grand Prix in Rio de Janeiro, on the very flat circuit on the edge of the city. The major teams have already spent a fair bit of time thrashing round the circuit testing their new cars, new engines or new drivers, and some of them will have flown back for further testing at Imola. When they all turn up on...

Memorable for the Wrong Reason

History has a nasty habit of repeating itself, as the World Championship sports car teams were reminded when they went to Canada. The first and last time Group C was run in Canada, 50 races ago in August 1985, the Jaguar XJR-6 made its debut at Mosport but the occasion was overshadowed by the accident which took the life of Manfred Winkelhock. This year, in September, the Peugeot 905 made its...

Nissan takes charge

The Japanese advanced on Le Mans, scaled the walls and conquered the 24 Hours. After that, Daytona was a doddle! Nissan's NISMO team ran a comprehensive test on the steep, 220 mph bankings last year but withdrew their entries on account of the Gulf war. All the data was checked exhaustively and the R91CP was perfectly prepared for this year's race, enabling the all-Japanese crew to dominate the...

Battle of the flexes

That this talented Brazilian should end up driving so many truly Dreadful Formula one cars remains a mystery. Gary Watkins asks him how it feels to be spoiled for quantity, if not quality. A couple of years ago Roberto Moreno was asked to be the subject of a Worst Car I Ever Drove for Motor Sport. He refused. The reason? He wasn't sure if he had yet driven his worst racing car. For a driver known...

Formula One: Hungarian GP

Favours of fortune Within a period of two weeks Nelson Piquet led less than 30 miles of Grand Prix motoring — but bagged 18 points in the 1987 World Drivers Championship as a result. What made his second lucky win so ironic was that it came two days after he told the Williams team he would be leaving it at the end of the season to join Lotus. Moreover, his stated reason for leaving Williams is...
