Dark days at Hockenheim

As Derek Warwick was proving that you can't keep a good racer down, Hockenheim threw up some urgent questions Hockenheim is a spooky place, a creator of uneasy feelings. For a quarter century it has been damned as the circuit on which Jim Clark perished, and it will never escape that taint. It seems a curious venue to run a motor race. After the first corner the road follows its narrow path...

Formula One: Hungarian Grand Prix

By the banks of the Danube When mention was first made about a possible Hungarian Grand Prix being entered on the 1986 FISA World Championship calendar, most people raised their eyebrows briefly and took little notice. It had been fifty years since Grand Prix cars last raced through a Budapest park and street circuit and although rounds of the European Touring Car Championship were held through...

World Sportscar Championship: Brands Hatch 1000kms

Lloyd does it again Last September Bob Wollek and Mauro Baldi won then first World Sportscar Championship race together, but there was no pleasure on their faces as they received the garlands at Spa; their Lancia had won a race shortened by the death of Stefan Bellof and celebrations were cancelled. At Brands Hatch in July there was nothing to mar the victory they achieved in the Liqui Moly...

ADAC 1,000 Kilometres

Having just had their Monza victory confirmed following an appeal to the ruling body, Derek Bell and Stefan Bellof went ahead in the World Endurance Championship for Drivers with a very narrow victory on the new Nürburgring circuit, 4.55 kilometres of twisting, plunging track which puts heavy demands on good braking. The more important Constructors' Championship is already a foregone conclusion...

Webber rewrites the record books with maiden GP win

By winning at his 130th attempt Mark Webber established a new record for the longest wait for a first Grand Prix victory when he triumphed in Germany. Webber beat the previous record of 124 GPs, held by Brawn driver Rubens Barrichello. But he could yet lose the ‘honour’ to Nick Heidfeld, who logged his 160th Grand Prix appearance in Hungary. Five other drivers have started more races than Webber...

A Touch of the Sun

Once you get south of somewhere like Avignon it can start getting very hot and the sun can get insidious, especially if it is tempered by a warm breeze and the suspicion of a haze in the sky. It is not the blazing heat that turns English people pink that is the danger, for blisters and sunburn are all too easy to see, but it is the gentle continuous heat that gets through to the brain without you...

Delirium tremens

Farewell to a straight shooterWhen it comes to telling things as they are, Fl can ill afford to lose men of the calibre of Goodyear's Lee Gaug "A lot of them are spoiled, overpaid kids who are not responsible. They're good, but as people they're not as good as they ought to be. They don't appreciate where their pay cheques come from." You could never accuse Lee Gaug of being bird-mouthed. He has...

Lunch with... Riccardo Patrese

His Formula 1 career lasted a remarkable 17 seasons, during which there were some dark moments but also six well-deserved wins. And through it all, Patrese emerged as one of the good guysBy Simon Taylor Riccardo Patrese is an enigma. He was once seen as the Bad Boy of Formula 1, arrogant and wild, and so disliked by some of his fellow drivers that they threatened a boycott if he were allowed to...

The one that got away

Kenneth Acheson: 1981 Pau F2 Uphill Struggle When Kenneth Acheson tangled with Michele Alboreto he knew his race was run. But, he tells Adam Cooper it also hurt his career "In 1980, I fought with Stefan Johansson and Roberto Guerrero for the British Formula Three title, but it was really hard to put a Formula Two deal together for the following year. I ended up going with Alan Docking, who had...

Close encounter

In the end, the result was all too familiar: Ayrton Senna first, Alain Prost second. Nothing too surprising about that, in this age of McLaren-Honda domination of Formula One. Yet the German Grand Prix was much more of a race than the bare result suggests, and the action wasn't confined to the battle for first place, either. For once, though, it really was quite a fight. In fact, it was probably...
