National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Watson on Prost

They got on famously at first, only for McLaren to favour the young pretender. Even so, John Watson is still in awe of former team-mate Alain Prost. Here ‘Wattie’ spills the beans on ‘the Professor’ I’d like to talk about Alan (he uses the English pronunciation) Prost,” says John Watson after some thinking time. He’s like that, always has been: he’s a thoughtful man. “There were some interesting...

Formula Two Round Up

Recent winners in the FIA's European championship have reflected just how wide open the 1979 title chase is turning out.

Formula Three review

The Year of South and Daly A refreshing breath of maturity has swept through the British Formula Three scene this season. This racing has been exciting, though rarely heart-stopping, technical, without becoming over-complicated, and clean, with only one major controversial accident all year. It has also produced two home-bred drivers of unquestionable ability in England's Stephen South and...

Grit in the oyster

Nigel Mansell became a pearl at Williams. But as Damien Smith explains his four full seasons at Lotus provided the grit in the oyster... Key scenes. Act One: first Formula One test. He snaps up the chance to take part in a Lotus young-driver try-out at Paul Ricard — just weeks after breaking his back in an Oulton Park F3 shunt. Popping painkillers like sweets, he tells the team he is perfectly...

Lunch with... Nigel Mansell

Formula Two Temporada

March again... For the first time since 1972, the European Formula Two teams returned to South America for a Temporada series in early November. Only two races were staged in Argentina after long-drawn-out negotiations, but the success of the venture, and a crowd of 50,000 spread over the races at Mendoza and Buenos Aires, has encouraged the organisers to plan a more ambitious Championship next...

Lunch With... Derek Warwick

He never earned the Grand Prix wins he deserved, but the man once dubbed Britain’s next World Champion isn’t worried. He loves life just as it isBy Simon Taylor Twenty-five years ago Formula 1 drivers had already become, in their own eyes at least, pretty important people.

The Formula One Scene

Normally by now the Formula One scene for the forthcoming season is signed and sealed, but this year there are still a lot of loose ends yet to be tied up, in particular with Team Lotus, Frank Williams and the Brabham team.
