Motor Mouth

If you cannot imagine Formula One without Murray Walker, he knows how you feel. He tells Matthew Franey why, aged 75, he’s not nearly done with the sport that has become his life I shook hands with Murray Walker and watched as he walked out of London's RAC Club – the diminutive figure smiling as he left. Behind me a waiter swooped with the bill and fixed me with a toothy grin. "I only watch eet...

The head line

There is a view in Formula One that time spent looking back is time wasted. If you don't spend every available second focused on the future — be it the next race, or the next season — you're not going to keep pace with change in Fl, let alone get ahead of the game. Those who think this way should meet Patrick Head, cast an eye over the achievements of Williams Grand Prix Engineering and consider...

The Formula One scene

The 1985 Grand Prix season was a good one and it looks as though the 1986 season is going to be even better. In 1985 we had a lot of interesting developments, and a few unfortunate ones, but the growth in strength of the Honda-powered Williams cars was one of the outstanding features of the season. For a long time it was beginning to look as though the Williams team and its Japanese engine men...

Good Vibrations

We have had our moments of criticism for Thierry Boutsen, but in Hungary last weekend the Belgian drove a beautifully judged race to withstand fearsome pressure for the entire 77 laps. The Hungaroring is a circuit that doesn't help those wishing to overtake, and after taking full advantage of his first ever pole position, the Williams-Renault driver took the lead at the start and withstood...

Two Pros At Work

If Alain Prost's brilliant manoeuvre had worked at the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix's 49th lap, the Frenchman still would have been the leader of the World Championship chase after 76 gruelling laps of the tortuous Hungaroring. Instead, team-mate Ayrton Senna yet again pushed the nose of his Honda Marlboro McLaren first across the finish line, 0.529 seconds ahead of Prost. It was the team's...

Oliver's army

The Arrows F1 team is 20 years old and has yet to win a race. Is founder Jackie Oliver downhearted? Adam Cooper found out When Damon Hill’s Arrows A18 faltered on the last lap of the 1997 Hungarian Grand Prix, he lost the chance of proving that he could win in something other than a Williams. But there was so much more at stake than Hill's personal pride. Had he stayed in front of Jacques...

The Grand Prix of France

A nice little affair Dijon-Prenois, July 3rd The Grand Prix of France must not be confused with the French Grand Prix of past years, or to give it its correct title, the Grand Prix of the Automobile Club de France. In 1906 the ACF ran the first Grand Prix which set the pattern for races run under various Formulae down through the ages. The Grand Prix de l'ACF was always a grand affair, offering...

McLaren overtakes Ferrari

Emotions run high in Adelaide, as Senna's 41st win dashes fairy tale retirement for Prost while pushing McLaren ahead of Ferrari in the all-time win stakes All in all, it was an emotional finale to the 1993 Grand Prix season, as the teams settled down in Adelaide. Alain Prost was preparing for retirement after 199 GP outings, 51 victories, 33 pole positions (the same as Jimmy Clark), 41 fastest...
