Reflections in the Transvaal

The South African Grand Prix certainly was a remarkable race, with five different drivers leading in turn and the winner leading for the last half a lap. Even more remarkable was the fact that Peterson won the race from the sixth row of the starting grid; the whole affair was a classic example of how unpredictable Formula One racing can be and a good indication that a driver should never give up...

1991 British Grand Prix race report - Bastille Day celebrations

  Bastille Day Celebrations Nigel Mansell dominated the 1991 British Grand Prix to win in front of his home support at Silverstone. Photo: Motorsport Images Silverstone, July 14. In my report of the 1991 Monaco Grand Prix (Motor Sport June 1991), after the combination of McLaren/Honda/Senna had won their fourth race on the trot I wrote the following: "When someone appears and beats the McLaren/...

Formula One: Portuguese Grand Prix

Senna makes his mark It would probably be a very slight exaggeration to suggest that Ayrton Senna has brought a fresh standard of driving excellence to Formula One simply on the strength of his splendid flag-to-flag victory in the Portuguese Grand Prix at Estoril, but it wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration. It was a masterly performance for two or three reasons. Obviously, the fact that Senna...

Formula One scene

Power game At last, in the first week in February, we heard officially where the Formula One "circus" will be going this year. Any other branch of our sport which took so long to make up its official mind on the all-important calendar would have been ostracized long ago. Formula One may be the top branch of the motor sporting tree, but it does not set much of an example to those lower down. I am...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Home win Rio de Janeiro, March 21st TO WIN one's home Grand Prix is the ambition of every Grand Prix driver and the success is even sweeter if that competitor happens to be a World Champion performing on home soil for the first time since winning his title. So this year's Brazilian Grand Prix, held over 63 gruelling, extremely hot laps of the Autodromo Riocentro, was a very special day indeed in...

Lunch with... Jackie Oliver

This Essex lad is more proud of his record as an F1 team owner than of his achievements behind the wheel. But those were varied and significant, too By Simon Taylor The sharp, punchy little guy from Romford has a downbeat view of his own racing career. He led his first home Grand Prix, and was set for a fairytale win when the car failed. He scored a historic Le Mans victory for Ford. He did 50...

World Endurance Championship, 1982-85 Porsche's grip is relaxing at last! Too soon though it certainly is to write an epitaph for the current Group C sportscar formula, what we have seen so far will never be regarded as anything but a Porsche benefit just as was the 3-litre/5-litre championship of 1968-1971, and the Group 5 "silhouette" formula of 1976 to 1981. For although it is expected that...

Reflections - The free spirit of Kimi Räikkönen - Mental gamesmanship in Formula 1 - The remarkable life of Chris Economaki * It was just Kimi Raikkonen's luck that, after coming close on a number of occasions, when he finally won a Grand Prix for Lotus it had to be in a country where the attitude to booze is somewhat at odds with his own. On the podium over time Kimi has shaken the champagne in...

"Der Grosser Preis von Deutschland"

The organising body of the German Grand Prix were split down the middle; the businessmen wanted to run the race at the compact Hockenheim Ring stadium, where everything was safe and clinical and organisational problems were few, while 100,000 paying customers in the arena was money guaranteed straight into their pockets. The Sportsmen were completely opposed to this, they wanted to retain the...

The Formula One scene

1983 Formula One Grand Prix racing does not start until March 13th, with the Brazilian Grand Prix at Rio de Janeiro, but already indications are that it is going to be an interesting year for those of us who enjoy Formula One. For those people who only follow it on television and have to rely on James Hunt for their information it will probably be another year of boring processions containing...
