The 33rd Monaco Grand Prix

Lauda all the wayMonte Carlo, May 11th Even as the dust was settling over the Montjuich Park in Barcelona there were worried mutterings about the race at Monte Carlo, for a more similar circuit would be hard to find. However, those who were determined not to miss their annual visit to the Principality of Monaco and hob-nob with Royalty and the aristocracy that is left in the world, thought...

All work no playboy

Forty years have passed since the sport lost one of its most misunderstood – and underrated – talentsWriter Andrew Frankel I’d known about the autobiography of Peter Revson for years, but never felt inclined to read it. Revson’s was a supporting role on the global motor racing stage: not a bit part for sure, but he was certainly no superstar either. Besides, Revson only got that far thanks to...

Modern times

In politics, you're only as good as your last speech. In motor racing, too, memories are short. Happy the World Champion who chooses just the right moment to retire, while he is still remembered for his glories, and not for the afternoon drives of his career. On 13th October 1996, in the melee of well-wishers, hangers-on and press that clogged the muddled area behind the Suzuka pits after his...

The Dutch Grand Prix

An Englishman winsZandvoort, June 22nd Everyone went to the seaside circuit in Holland resigned to the fact that the Dutch Grand Prix would be another Ferrari walk-over. Memories of the way Lauda and Regazzoni had dominated the 1974 race still lingered uncomfortably in the minds of the Cosworth V8 users, even though the massacre was avenged later in the season. The 1975 Ferraris, with their ever...

Aussie rules

No-one defined the Australian racing driver better than Jonesy – acerbic wit but also self-deprecating humour, gritty determination and fairness in the heat of battle. He talks to Adam Cooper about his career of surprises "For me, racing was very much a natural progression," says Alan Jones. "I remember Dad used to let me take the odd Monday off school so I could go and watch him race. And as far...

It's been a turbulent month for Formula One, which has once again found itself on the front pages of the newspapers as well as the back. First it was the Silverstone mud, which was caused by two things: an abnormally high water table in Northamptonshire after two months of heavy spring rain; and the FIA's arrogant insistence that the British Grand Prix should move from the traditional date it has...

So little time

The newspapers understandably concentrated on Graham Hill in the aftermath of his fatal plane crash, but the tragedy also claimed the life of a man who might have proved even greater than his boss. David Tremayne remembers the brief but brilliant career of Tony Brise. Twenty five years on, the photograph still has a mesmeric power to make your eyes prickle, to evoke anger and poignant images of...

Silverstone International Trophy

Ronnie Peterson led the International Trophy from the start after James Hunt Hesketh got away slowly from pole position, its driver thinking that the clutch was about to fail. The new Lotus was slowed by tyre trouble, but Hunt caught up easily and passed into the lead with twelve laps of the forty-lap event left. Peterson stopped with engine failure two laps later and Hunt finished a popular...

Racers Apart

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club SceneWhat's happening in Formula Ford Formula Ford, the category of racing Introduced in 1967, continues to go from strength to strength and, if the early season races are anything to go by, 1972 could be the best year ever for these 1,600-c.c. skinny wheeled single-seaters.
