The Canadian Grand Prix

Gilles Villeneuve scored a fairy-tale first Grand Prix win in front of his hime crowd in the Canadian World Championship event on the new Ile Notre Dame Circuit in Montreal. For Ferrari - he was in 312T3/034 - it meant complete domination of the North American rounds. The youthful here is seen celebrating, below right, on the winner's rostrum between second placed Scheckter and third placed...

The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

1981 British Grand Prix race report - A very popular win

John Watson crosses the line in his McLaren to win after late drama for Rene Arnoux. Photo: Motorsport Images The pits and...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

The San Marino Grand Prix

A very interesting race Imola, May 3rd To fill out the ranks of the Grand Prix races in the European part of the 1981 season the Italians came up with the splendid idea of holding a second event in Italy. As the International rules do not allow this unless the circuits are more than a specified distance apart (to allow two events in the USA) the Automobile Club of San Marino put in a claim for a...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

Matters of moment

Endurance racing It was intended that this season should see a renaissance of endurance racing, but with the opening rounds at Brands Hatch and Mugello cancelled because of lack of sufficient entries (the race at Monza on April 18th was scheduled to happen after we closed for press) the prospects have been depressing. We must hope for a recovery in time for this month's BRDC Six-Hour race at...

Italian Grand Prix

Silence of the fans The Italian Grand Prix and the Monza track have always been synonymous with sheer unadulterated speed, regardless of the attentions that have been made over the years, and this year's race did not disappoint the Formula One World, even though it proved to be a total disaster for the Ferrari fans. Never have they been so quiet, their only moment of joy being when Ricardo...
