Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio de Janeiro, March 25th In sharp contrast to previous years, the Formula 1 "close season" has been very much longer this winter, stretching from Kyalami in mid-October 1983 until the Brazilian Grand Prix opened the 1984 season on March 25th. In the past many teams have spent time moaning that the break is far too short, giving them nowhere near sufficient time to complete development...

Disappointments...

Personal disappointment relates to not having been sufficiently industrious in youth, to have studied things like workshop practice and simple welding etc, so that I could have worked on my cars and perhaps even built a special, and God not having endowed me with the qualities required for being a top-line racing driver… Thinking in terms of the many disappointments that have involved those who...

“I never considered early on that Niki could beat me to the championship. That was a mistake!"

In 1984, Alain Prost joined mighty McLaren and confirmed what we already knew: he was the fastest man on the grid. But wily old team-mate Lauda wasn’t about to roll over… F1 was set for an epic – and the tightest finish in history Writer Adam Cooper Just as the 2014 F1 season has turned into a battle between two team-mates, so it was 30 years ago when Niki Lauda and Alain Prost fought out one of...

The Argentine Grand Prix

A good start Buenos Aires, January 13th With Christmas and the New Year over the Formula One scene was soon in full swing and air freighters-were taking the cars to South America for the first of the 1980 races, with the drivers and team personnel soon following, clutching their Enteroviaform and Ambre Solaire, for the Argentinian food and summer, respectively. As the 1979 season ended there were...

Gimme five!

In the heat of Imola nothing could stop Nigel Mansell setting another record. This time last year, at the fifth Grand Prix of the season, Williams-Renault had firmly indicated the strength of its challenge to McLaren-Honda. That race, the Canadian GP, ultimately fell to poor old Nelson Piquet in the Benetton-Ford, but only after Mansell's last minute drama. Senna had won the previous four, but...

Kyalami 1,000 Kms

A quick dash of Martini

A pair of Lancia LC2s will race in Group C races in Europe this season with Americans Richard and Benton Bryan driving.

Barrichello tops Patrese's record

Rubens Barrichello celebrated his 257th Grand Prix in Turkey, establishing a new record for the greatest number of starts.

Patrese is now working as a commentator for Italian TV. There had been considerable...

Formula Two Review - The French Bow Out with Another Title

At the vast Estoril Autodrome in Portugal, little Rene Arnoux finally clinched the 1977 European Formula Two title in his Martini-Renault Mk. 22. He finished second in the October 1st penultimate round to put the coveted Championship safely out of reach of his few remaining rivals. Mindful of the bitter disappointment in 1976 when the Championship was stolen from his grasp in that incredible...
