1981 British Grand Prix race report - A very popular win

John Watson crosses the line in his McLaren to win after late drama for Rene Arnoux. Photo: Motorsport Images The pits and...

The French Grand Prix

Inconclusive Dijon-Prenois, July 5th The most important aspect of the 1981 French Grand Prix was that it saw the return of the Goodyear Tyre Company to Formula One. It will be recalled that they withdrew entirely last winter during the fracas between Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors and officialdom. Thanks to the support of Michelin, who agreed to supply everyone with tyres...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

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 man that time forgot

Many drivers have the talent, but only a few get the breaks. Andrea Gilardi’s junior CV is a thing of wonder, a tale of titles won and future heroes conquered – Michael Schumacher among them. Sometimes, though, that simply isn’t enough Writer Rob Widdows It is July 1985, a roasting hot day in Northern France, and the stage is set for the climax of the Junior Kart World Championship on the Maison...

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 II Review

THE YEAR 1980 ushered in a new era of professionalism on the European Formula Two scene. Seasoned observers compared it to Grand Prix racing in the late sixties/early seventies, before the whirlwind of commercialism that changed the face of the sport's major echelon almost beyond recognition. The customer car market shrank as a myriad of new chassis designs appeared and the three most powerful...

The Canadian Grand Prix

Heroes all Montreal, September 27th I am sure most people arrived in Canada expecting the mm-st as far as thc weather was concerned, and they were not disappointed on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, whichever day on which they arrived from Britain, France, Italy, Germany. Mexico or wherever. It poured with rain and was grey and miserable but on Friday morning when practice began the sun...
