Formula Two Review

With five of the 12 rounds of this year's European Formula Two Championship run two Swedish drivers head the points table. On paper Stefan Johansson has the lead on 19 points but fellow countryman Eje Elgh (18 points) is appealing against a disqualification from the results of the Thruxton round, which cost him six points. Elgh finished runner-up to Maurer team-mate Robert Guerrero at Thruxton...

1986 British Grand Prix race report - In the garden of England

  At Brands Hatch, the Williams team gave a demonstration of dominance and quality. Both cars started from the front row and, apart from the first two laps, occupied the leading positions throughout, not even losing the lead during pitstops. Given another lap or so, Mansell and Piquet would have lapped third place man, Alain Prost, for a second time and Prost was in no trouble, he was a full lap...

Hidden Glory, The Story of the Crosslé Car Company Alan Tyndall Other volume racing car manufacturers have cultivated higher profiles – March, Lola, Van Diemen and Reynard, to name but four – but one of the UK’s most engaging cottage industries has been ravaged by one-make myopia and many famous names have either gone to the wall or else simply faded away as custom dried up. But not Crosslé. For...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

-- Ferrari fight backZolder, April 29th When the Belgian Grand Prix returned to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit last year, everyone was delighted and full of enthusiasm for a real Grand Prix de Belgique and the general feeling was that there need be no further discussion; the Belgian race was back at its rightful home and there it would stay. However, those who thought that overlooked one small...

Notes on the Cars at Zolder and Imola

With the Belgian GP and the San Marino GP on successive weekends (April 29th and May 6th) there was precious little time for anyone to return to base between the races so most of the teams set off for Belgium with sufficient equipment for the two weeks. Europe based teams like Ferrari were at a big advantage and the Maranello team were back home by Monday lunch-time after the Belgian race the...

French Grand Prix

Dijon, May 20th Returning to the tortuous Dijon-Prenois circuit for the first time since 1981, this year’s edition of the French Grand Prix saw Niki Lauda deny the factory Renault Elf team another victory on home soil by taking his McLaren MP4/2 to a confident and convincing victory in the 79 lap race. For the McLaren International team it was another remarkable demonstration of the latest John...

The San Marino Grand Prix

Dull Imola, May 6th One thing about Italians, you know exactly where you stand with them; they are either deliriously happy or tragically sad, there is nothing in between. When they are happy they let you know in no uncertain manner, with cheering and shouting, flag waving, arm waving, jumping up and down and anything else they can think of to express their joy. When they are sad there is...

South African Grand Prix

Kyalami, Johannesburg, April 7th Early season Formula One form can frequently be misleading, but be that as it may the McLaren International team caught all its rivals off guard in the first two events of the 1984 Championship calendar. Two weeks after Alain Prost opened the year with victory in the Brazilian grand Prix at Rio de Janeiro, the Porsche-built, TAG-engined McLaren MP4/2s enacted an...

Some You Win, Some You Lose

I well recall my personal enthusiasm for Niki Lauda who, apart from being a mate, was a driver I always reckoned had everything all weighed up. In 1977, when he won his second World Championship title for Ferrari, I thought he won it by cunning and good judgement. DSJ on the other hand, reckoned he did so by stealth and consistency. In other words, "playing the points game". For the record, Mario...
