Love him, hate him... Nelson Piquet didn't give a damn

And he still doesn’t. Notorious Nelson Piquet stoked both anger and admiration on his way to three F1 titles. Images linger of a crass troublemaker – but lest we forget, he was defiantly talented, too Let’s admit it from the start. I like and admire Nelson Piquet. It can be a trying experience, though, to be unmasked as a Piquet supporter, so let’s remind ourselves of his extraordinary talent....

The Swedish Grand Prix

A very good race Anderstorp, June 19th Sweden is not the most exciting country to visit, and the Scandinavian Raceway at Anderstorp is not the most exciting of circuits, but even so the Formula One "circus" enacted a cracking good race. Throughout practice Team Lotus had continued the form they showed in Belgium, and though Andretti was not fastest in all three sessions due to a tyre "nonsense",...

End of Term

The Australian Grand Prix, held on the streets of Adelaide, was the sixteenth and final event in the 1987 Formula One season, and was run in very hot conditions, putting a premium on tyres and brakes. There were some changes to the regular scene in driver/car combinations, for Nigel Mansell was forced to miss the event on medical advice following his accident at the Japanese Grand Prix two weeks...

Endurance racing review

FOLLOWING the postponement of the races at Brands Hatch and Mugello, the World Endurance Championship finally took off at Monza on April 18th. Those early events were doomed from the very beginning for they did not form qualifying rounds of the Manufacturers' Championship and did not attract the interest of the major teams like Porsche or Ford. That, combined with their positions on the...

Me and my Arrows

At a time when Formula One cars generally looked very individual, the Shadow and Arrows of 1978 were startlingly similar - and more than one person noticed. Among them was Alan Henry, who describes how he - and arrows - were court in the act It's funny how a throwaway remark can sometimes boomerang. Walking into the Shadow team's garage at the 1978 Silverstone International Trophy meeting, I...

Around and about

The GP Opel conclusion Last month we published pictorial proof that Opel I, described in Motor Sport for September 1977, and owned by Noel Mavrogordato, is the car which finished 10th in the 1914 French Grand Prix, driven by Carl Jorns and which came to Brooklands as Opel II, entered by Capt.

Formula Two review

The year of the new young hopefuls Over the years the lesser FIA formulae, like the European Formula Two championship and the various national and international Formula Three championships, have often been referred to as the stepping stones for the Grand Prix stars of tomorrow.

Formula One scene: Australian GP

The end of an era Adelaide, November 13 On the face of it, it was all just another crushing McLaren-Honda demonstration run, as Ron Dennis' machines sped to their tenth 1-2 of a season in which the team has re-written the parameters of Formula One. Alain Prost apparently cruised to his seventh win of 1988 and another nine points, which brought his total to 105, although thanks to the silly...

The one that got away - a case of Diff only

He had pulled a neat move on Schumacher, Senna and Mansell had retired. He had never driven a better car. He was catching the leader. Which is when it all went wrong... By Adam Cooper "In my 158 Grand Prix starts I twice had a car that could win the race," recalls Martin Brundle. "One was Canada 1992, and the other was Spa later that same year, when Michael Schumacher finally won — but I should...
