Formula One: Australian Grand Prix

Bowing out Gerhard Berger sustained his winning momentum to reel off his second victory in a fortnight when the Grand Prix circus arrived in Adelaide for the Australian Grand Prix, the final round of the sixteen race 1987 World Championship series. Despite the fact that the 28-year-old Austrian was feeling distinctly below par all weekend with a raging sore throat and ear-ache, once strapped into...

REFLECTIONS Why Schumacher should have been banned It’s time to change the rule on team orders Watching the Edmonton IndyCar race on TV, I was more than a touch nonplussed when Hélio Castroneves was given a penalty in the late laps for allegedly blocking his Penske team-mate Will Power immediately after a restart. This cost Castroneves the race, and afterwards he freely advised officials of his...

X-ray spec -- Brabham BT 52

Gordon Murray's rush job: and it wasn't just the car that was wired, he tells Keith Howard For some, like Cosworth's Keith Duckworth, Formula One's turbo era was a crazy aberration. When F1 's return to power had arrived in 1966, the rules included a provision for 1.5-litre forced-induction engines, the intention being to ease the transition to the new 3-litre normally-aspirated formula. Nobody...

Reflections – The importance of the edge of risk in Formula 1 – Why losing traction control is symbolically vital – Life after Alonso and the spy scandal at McLaren At the end of the ’60s, when I was not long out of school, I read an interview with Joakim Bonnier, the Swedish driver who gave BRM its first Grand Prix victory, at Zandvoort in 1959.

Opportunity knocked

Williams dominated qualifying, but it was Senna who grasped the chance when the weather gods proved fickle on race day There have been some opportunist moves in Formula One over the years – Jacky Ickx passing Niki Lauda round the outside at Paddock Bend in the 1974 Race of Champions, or Nigel Mansell diving past Ayrton Senna up the hill in Hungary in 1989 – spring immediately to mind but few have...

The Formula One Scene

The Senna Saga Invariably the winter months, when there in no Formula One racing, are enlivened by some inconsequential drama whipped up into a fury by the weekly comics and the media in general This winter was no exception and I was interested to follow the saga of Ayrton Senna da Silva and his terms with Team Lotus. It ran for a full three months and everyone had his say, except oddly enough,...

The vast majority of competing teams took part in this busy programme of testing, but the...

1978 British Grand Prix race report - Simply unreal

  Variety is something which the British Grand Prix always provides, fluctuating as it does from the pleasant garden-party atmosphere of the Silverstone airfield circuit to the wire-mesh fence confines of the cramped and over-crowded stadium at Brands Hatch. Carlos Reutemann leads in the Ferrari during the 1978 British Grand Prix. Photo: Motorsport Images Anyone who was at the British Grand Prix...
