"His was the most complex character I ever encountered in the sport."

Our editor-in-chief recalls Ayrton Senna as a talent feted for F1 greatness - but also as a driver with a dark sideBy Nigel Roebuck For a few days after seeing Senna, I couldn't get the man out of my mind, and perhaps not surprisingly so. I had, after all, been present at all but a handful of his 161 Grands Prix, and inevitably the movie brought that time alive again, releasing a deluge of...

Where there's a Williams...

Yet another Williams victory! Mansell? No. Patrese? No. Prost doing some pre-season testing? No — they were racing for the Motor Sport Trophy for historic F1 and F5000 cars, and the victorious Williams pilot was John Fenning. That was the headline race at the HSCC meeting at Silverstone on September 19, which also featured the annual Motor Sport concours, bringing together sporting cars of preand...

The Herbert Conspiracy

From zero to hero, but what really happened? Needled by world champion Michael Schumacher's pointed comments about David Coulthard's speed, Damon Hill was moved to puzzle why it is that the German's own team-mates mysteriously lose form the instant they got their bottom in the second Benetton? Touché. Finally handed the opportunity his legion of supporters insist he deserves, Johnny Herbert's...

(No) Lunch with... Keke Rosberg

The 1982 Word Champion puts his success down to hard work rather than talent, but there's been plenty of that in evidence too By Simon Taylor According to Keke Rosberg, getting to the top in Formula 1 requires one of two things: “A lot of talent, or a lot of hard work. Nelson Piquet, for example, never wanted to work very hard, but he did have a great talent. Ayrton Senna was special, because for...

Emergency Answers

The winter months have been fairly quiet on the Formula One scene, which does not mean that nothing has been happening; far from it in fact, but much that has happened has been on the organising and management side of things. A major happening has been on the tyre front, much of it behind closed doors. Last year Goodyear supplied tyres for sixteen cars and Pirelli supplied eleven, and the fact...

Under scrutiny: TAG McLaren

The perfectionists Travelling along Albert Drive past the Woking Business Park, it is doubtful whether the average driver would appreciate that the building bearing the dayglo TAG McLaren logo behind the securely-guarded perimeter fence is the hub of one of the most successful Grand Prix teams in history — the team which re-wrote the record book in 1988 by winning 15 of the 16 Grands Prix, 15...

SWC Magny-Cours

Home fire burning The Sportscar World Championship has been a one-sided contest this year, and the result of the sixth round at Magny-Cours, in central France on September 15 put Silk Cut Jaguar well on the trail of the main title. What nobody predicted was that the gallant Peugeot Talbot Sport team would turn the tables on Jaguar and fairly dominate the race with a 1-2 result! "If you'd told...

A preview to the coming Historic season

Thrilling the crowds Britain is the hub of the motor racing world. That situation has evolved over many years and is reflected in today's historic racing, where the Historic Sports Car Club sets the pattern which the rest of the world follows. As the HSCC steadily develops and supports new areas of interest, so Germany, Australia and Sweden and the other motor racing countries join the movement....

Cotton On

Countdown to the 1991 World Sportscar Championship A new era in sportscar racing opens at Suzuka, Japan on April 14, and a new interest is expected between Silk Cut Jaguar, Mercedes and Peugeot. With luck Walter Brun may have his Judd-powered Brun Gp C car ready, and Franz Konrad is working hard on his Lamborghini-powered contender, though their sights may be set on the European part of the...

Team Managers - Jean Todt

Known throughout F1 as 'Little Napoleon', Ferrari's Mr Motivator is, in reality, a kind and engaging leader. Mark Hughes investigates Jean Todt, Ferrari. There is so much irony in the combination of those names. In the history of the sport you won't find two men whose approach to team management was more diametrically opposed than Enzo Ferrari and Todt. The former was a theatrical front man whose...
