New Formula One cars

As many new Formula One cars seem to be appearing as the weekly "comics" discover budding new Formula One drivers in Formula Ford, Formula Atlantic or Formula Three, but just as it is a long way from professional Club racing to winning a Grand Prix, it is also a long way from completing the building of a Formula One car to it getting the chequered flag. Although it seems that new cars are...

This extract from Johnny Tipler's new book — Formula One Superswede — sheds light on the man behind those awesome drifts The group of glamorous figures watching the racing from the inside of the hairpin caught my attention. This cool coterie at the...

Jenks on...

Spa, 1983 While at the fantastic motor racing facility at Nivelles-Baulers I was weeping into my Stella Artois with the genial rally giant Erik Carlsson when he said, "I'm told this circuit is very safe and very good for Formula One. When all the circuits are as safe as this won't the drivers find it rather boring, and when they do, what will they do then?" I didn't know the answer to that one,...

Interview: Roberto Moreno

Third time around When all eyes are focused on the front row of the grid at Silverstone, and most likely on Ayrton Senna in particular, spare a thought for one of his compatriots who had a taste of the big time when Senna was in Formula Ford but who is only now having a second bite of the apple. It was as a 22-year-old Formula Three driver that Roberto Moreno was offered a Lotus test-drive. Who...
