All work no playboy

Forty years have passed since the sport lost one of its most misunderstood – and underrated – talentsWriter Andrew Frankel I’d known about the autobiography of Peter Revson for years, but never felt inclined to read it.

Letters

Memorable John Button What a shame… and what a shock to be informed of John Button’s passing in your editorial. Having seen or heard nothing in the media, my wife and I were taken aback, since we frequently watch BBC news headlines and I admit to being a Facebook addict. I had the pleasure of meeting him at last year’s Festival of Speed. I had been ushered into the ‘red carpet’ area, for a cuppa...

An easy rider born to drive

Gary Hocking called a premature halt to his meteoric bike career in 1962. He felt Formula One was a safer option... Paul Fearnley recalls a talent that shone brightly, but much too briefly It was a remarkable opening lap of a remarkable circuit. Rhodesia's Gary Hocking had been drawn at six, his MV Agusta team-mate Mike Hailwood at three and his good friend, Honda's Aussie charger Tom Phillis,...

CONTINENTAL NOTES

CONTINENTAL NOTES OW that the Grand Prix season has begun it is worth casting a look at who is driving what, so that the alarums and excursions of the winter can be ignored. Taking Ferrari first, as they won the first RI race, we see that the Grand I rix team will be Phil Hill, Giancarlo Baghetti and Lorenzo Bandini, and they will use two versions of the II-litre V6 Ferrari car. The first is a...

A jam-packed season

Owen racing organisation BRM versus Team Lotus For the two drivers who battled out the 1962 Formula 1 World Championship to its nail-biting last-round conclusion, the year had started very differently. While Jimmy Clark was dominating a south African Formula 1 tour in baking sunshine, graham hill and his equally roustabout friend Peter Jopp were slithering down to Monaco over ice and snow in the...

Modern times

The one result Bernie Ecclestone didn't want in Australia was the one he got — a Michael Schumacher win. And Maranello's decision to rely for the time being on last year's Ferrari seemed to be no handicap at all.

Karl learns his lesson

Karl Wendlinger completed his initial apprenticeship to Mercedes' WS-PC team by sharing the laurels at Spa with tutor Jochen Mass. At the age of 21, the Austrian is the youngest winner of a World Championship race since Ricardo Rodriguez drove a Ferrari to victory in the Targa Florio in 1962, and Wendlinger certainly showed a fine blend of skill and maturity as he dealt with a distant challenge...
