Lunch with... Johnny Herbert

After his horrific crash at Brands, Johnny used humour to get through the pain and carry on racing. But he’s not bitter about what might have been – he just wants to come back in the next life as Schuey! By Simon Taylor Think of Johnny Herbert and you think of the ever-cheerful, cheeky little guy from Romford, whose irreverent humour and constant teasing brought welcome relief to the increasingly...

Formula One scene

Exiting times ahead When the new Formula One due to start in 1989 was announced it sounded deadly dull and I thought about taking up model-car collecting. That was two years ago and I am happy to say that since then things have changed for the better. At the time when we were told that turbocharged 11/2-litre engines would be outlawed at the end of 1988 we were at a fantastically high peak of...

Fruits of passion

Eddie Jordan knows the mild taste of Formula One success. In 1996, he knows he has to get used to something a little stronger "Out of my way, you froggies," demanded Eddie Jordan, face creased with a mischievous grin, as he pushed his way into the Ligier awning. "I'd like to have a word with my driver! "Tom? Tom? Come out of there, you coward..." Had the object of his taunt, Tom Walkinshaw,...

Formula One scene

Ready for Rio! On April 3 the 1988 Grand Prix season opens with the running of the Brazilian Grand Prix in Rio de Janeiro, on the very flat circuit on the edge of the city. The major teams have already spent a fair bit of time thrashing round the circuit testing their new cars, new engines or new drivers, and some of them will have flown back for further testing at Imola. When they all turn up on...

Formula One scene: Monte Carlo

The eleven year plan I sometimes wonder if I am totally out of step with the rest of the world when I read things like the Renault Press handout which says that the Monaco Grand Prix is the world's most prestigious race. I have been watching Grand Prix races round the streets of Monte Carlo for longer than I care to remember, and I can't say I have ever taken them very seriously. The idea of...

Formula One scene

Haves and have-nots The Brazilian Grand Prix certainly got the 1989 season off to a good start, and it also launched the new 31/2-litre normally aspirated formula with a flourish. The outcome of the Brazilian race is now a bit academic, and any apparent trends or signs will have now been confirmed or rejected by the happenings at the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola, which took place on April 23...

At home in a racing Arena

He’s focused on the BTCC these days, but Mike Earle’s varied motor sport career stretches back over half a century By day with Mike Earle begins with a fried egg sandwich, conjured up from the pristine workshops below his office at at Arena International in Littlehampton. "You won't get this at McLaren," he says. "It's the crumbs, you see, the crumbs on the carpet." This exchange sets the tone...

Formula One: Australian GP

Insanity rules "When I retired, they should have  stopped it. Nothing more could have happened that could have affected the championship, so there was no further point in risking people's lives." If Ayrton Senna sounded a little arrogant after his spectacular exit from Adelaide's rain-soaked streets, his suggestion had the thread of logic that was missing from the officials' viewpoint of the race...

Around and about

Brabham turmoil A Brabham entry has been filed for the 1989 Formula One World Championship, though the team's exact composition remains unclear. It appears that Bernie Ecclestone has sold his entire interest in the team he acquired from Ron Tauranac in 1971, although there has also been speculation that Alfa Romeo had purchased a significant interest in 1987. Walter Brun has fronted negotiations...
