Working with the Warwicks Sir, I write to say how very much I enjoyed Simon Taylor’s article on lunching with Derek Warwick in Jersey (April issue). Some 40 years ago my father, Samuel Lee, was company secretary to Warwick Trailers in Alresford and he always said Derek would be the next World Champion. Derek, as was stated, was frequently in the wrong car and place! I never met Derek but tales of...

Mansell Is Finally Crowned

Senna wins dramatic race, but second is enough to secure Mansell's first World Championship The first 38 laps of the Hungarian GP did not follow the script that Nigel Mansell would have wished to have signed off, but the inkling of the role that Riccardo Patrese had written in for himself had already become evident on Saturday night. After dominating each practice session, the Italian was in good...

1993 British Grand Prix race report - Hill makes a point

  Xenophobia, team tactics and a very small crowd; the first Mansell-less British GP since 1981 broke some new ground, but the end result was familiar In the end, all the pre-race hype about team tactics became academic, but while it lasted the long-anticipated showdown between Williams-Renault team's Damon Hill and Alain Prost was really quite a humdinger. In the week leading up to Britain's...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

Book reviews

Alfa RomeoFrom 1910 to 2010Maurizio Tabucchi A century is a large slice of history to fit in a book, especially when it is such a packed century as the story of Italy’s greatest marque. (Other contenders are available.) Tabucchi’s book does not feel rushed, yet it manages to relate not only the mechanical story but also the politics and personalities who influenced the firm, lightening the text...

Modern times

Simon Taylor After Max Mosley's comprehensive revamp of Formula One's regulations, some cynics have been talking about New F1 in tones they normally reserve for New Labour. But they can't deny that the first three grands prix of 2003 have been dramatic, exciting, unpredictable, and chock-full of good old-fashioned motor racing. Inevitably, however, they've also been chock-full of controversy,...
