The Austrian Grand Prix

A French Festival Österreichring, Knittelfeld, August 16th The pits and paddock were well filled by Friday morning, to see the start of testing under blue skies and in warm sunshine, though there was a small gap where the Fittipaldi team should have been. Although they assured some people they would be there they opted out at the last moment due to financial problems. This meant that there were...

The South African Grand Prix

A pointless exercise Kyalami, Johannesburg, February 7th Notwithstanding the lack of support from Ferrari, Renault, Alfa Romeo and Talbot Ligier, the Formula One Constructors Association entered a total of nineteen drivers for this year's South African Grand Prix at Kyalami, although whether FISA will ever formally regard it as the first round of the FIA World Championship is hard to say. With no...

Formula One: The Italian Grand Prix

Renault all the way Monza, Italy, September 13th In these rather unsettled days it was nice to get back to the Monza track, the true home of the Italian Grand Prix. It looks as though common sense is going to prevail over big business and the Italian Grand Prix is to stay at the Monza track, while the San Marino Grand Prix will be run at the new, and very satisfactory, Imola track. There were no...

The Monaco Grand Prix

Gambler's luck  Monte Carlo, May 15th The planning of the 1983 Grand Prix season is not working out too well. It started off all right in Brazil, with everyone surprisingly fit and ready to race, then the scene moved to Long Beach where there was an all-pervading atmosphere of it being the last Formula One race in the Californian sea-port town. The European scene began entirely on the wrong foot...

Around and about

Avon Racing Tyres When Goodyear pulled out of Formula One at the end of last year, and Michelin only guaranteed to supply racing tyres to everyone until the European season started, the future looked bleak. For some time now a firm known as International Race Tire Service Ltd. IRTS, which is comprised of racing tyre people from the old Firestone racing division, the disbanded Goodyear racing...

The Italian Grand Prix

The Italian Grand Prix — Renault v Ferrari Monza, Italy, September 12th IF you have never seen an Italian Grand Prix at Monza you really have missed one of the most important aspects of Grand Prix racing. for even if the race itself proves to be dull and unexciting the atmosphere is never dull. The owners may have built there ..Micky-Mouse" chicanes into the circuit in recent years, which has...

Las Vegas Grand Prix

Jones signs off with a win Las Vegas, October 17th The whirlwind of frenzied Formula One activity finally reached its climax for 1981 in the dusty, sun-scorched car park of the Caesars Palace hotel and gambling complex in Las Vegas. Although the organisers had clearly gone to an enormous amount of effort in staging this end-of-season event, the end result was a “point and squirt” circuit laid out...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

— An air of foreboding Zolder, May 9th WITH the Imola "strikers" returned to the lucrative world of Formula One, the Belgian entry was full to overflowing, but their union shop-steward made it clear that he and his men intended to employ "disruptive methods" and protest against anything and everything. Consequently, although the entire entry was ready to go on Friday morning a lot of people were...

The Formula One Scene

IT IS with some relief that I welcome in 1982, for it means that the 1981 season is really over and the sooner we forget it the better. In the past we have had the silly season, which is usually a brief moment at the height of the summer, but 1981 was a silly season from start to finish. It began with the absurd idea that the Formula One Constructors Association was more powerful that the...

Notes from the paddock at Imola

THE MECHANICAL scene at Imola could have been interesting had the majority of the FOCA teams not gone on strike. The new Williams FW08 cars were due to make their debut and the Brabham team intended to run one BMW-powered BT50 and one Cosworth V8-powered BT49. Lotus were due to make their European debut with the Type 91 and the McLaren MP4B, as run so successfully at Long Beach, was a favourite...
