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,...

Lunch with . . . David Coulthard

From catching Senna's eye at Williams, to crossing swords with Schumacher, to helping Red Bull earn its wings, DC's F1 achievements go far beyond the statistics By Simon Taylor Lets deal with the statistics first. David Coulthard's 13 Formula 1 victories never won him the world title, but he was runner-up in 2001, and took third place in the table no fewer than four times. In his 247 Grands Prix...

Massive attack

It was a big dream, with a big car – and huge bills. BL’s ETCC challenge soon ran aground, but now the XJC is back – and winning!By Gordon Cruickshank Oil. It’s what our sport runs on. It’s vital, but in the wrong place it can ruin all your plans. It happened to Andy Rouse late in 1977. The place: Silverstone. The race: the TT. The machine: Broadspeed Jaguar XJC. The quarry: victory in Britain’s...

Its great rival the Sierra Cosworth was faster, but the M3 won on reliability – quite literally, with numerous title successes. So surely a Group A revival series beckons… By Richard Heseltine Never underestimate how denial can pass for self-confidence.

World Sportscar Championship: Monza 1000kms

Big Cat-trick! It may be too soon yet to claim that Jaguar has Porsche on the run in the World Sportscar Championship, but John Watson and Jan Lammers took a faultless victory in the Monza 1000km race on April 12, and put the Jaguar company firmly at the top of the Teams' Championship.
