From the archives with Doug Nye

The Italian job offer Tony Vandervell chose to pass on this chance to buy a novel Grand Prix project that made big claims I could hardly believe my eyes. Flicking idly through an old Vanwall correspondence file, I have just found this long-buried gem. On July 18, 1955, Arialdo Ruggeri of the Scuderia Automobilistiche Milan, Via Mose Bianchi 71, Milan, Italy, wrote personally to Tony Vandervell of...

More vintage, less whine There was a time when being Formula 1 world champion seemed to mean so much more than today When I was first hooked on motor racing, what turned out to be a life-changing image was a magazine photo shown to me by my big brother, Rod. It depicted Reg Parnell in the works Alfa Romeo 158 at Silverstone. ‘Uncle Reg’ was crouched behind the steering wheel, muscular arms...

Shadows on the sands

Casablanca – the sunlit scene of Britain’s first World Championship was darkened by tragic eventsBy Nigel Roebuck Bernie Ecclestone recently said that, for him, the World Champion each year should be the driver who had won the most races, that only in the event of a tie on victories should ‘places’ come into the reckoning. And no season better supports Ecclestone’s notion than 1958, when Mike...

Nigel Roebuck

Reflections– Rising star Vettel shows shades of Prost– Spa penalty protest brings no surprises– The legacy left by American champ Phil Hill– Bernie’s tribute to his friend Stuart Lewis-Evans Leaving aside Monaco, where his profile was ultra-low during a brief visit to the paddock, Max Mosley chose Monza, the last European Grand Prix of the season, for a first ‘public appearance’ since his unusual...

F3 review

The final four rounds of the Motor Sport/Shell Formula Three Championship built up into an amazingly exciting climax which was finally decided at Brands Hatch on October 18th. An earlier Brands Hatch qualifying event, on August 31st, had been won by Gerry Birrell, who was not previously very well placed in the Championship and had shot into the ratings with the help of some new Dunlop tyres. At...

Share delight

50 years ago, Vanwall achieved the first all-British Formula 1 victory, in the British GP. The win was shared by Stirling Moss and his team-mate – who tells us exclusively about that day By Tony Brooks Those last 10 laps were exhausting. I was checking the rev counter, listening anxiously to the engine’s note, changing gear with exaggerated care, braking a little earlier and giving the cars I was...

Villoresi gets the works

Sir, I enjoyed your Hawthorn article but would point out that the Thinwall Special did not feature in Mike's battle with Luigi Villoresi at Boreham in 1952: Villoresi was in a 'works' Ferrari 375. The Thinwall did not race at Boreham; apparently, the event's backers, the Daily Mail, were unwilling to underwrite Tony Vandervell's 1,1000 starting money requirements. I AM YOURS, ETC, John Frankland...

Legends - Mike Hawthorn

Much was made recently of the 'interminable' five-week gap between the penultimate and final races of the Formula One season. And certainly it was unusual, given Bernie Ecclestone's dislike of 'free' weekends. As late as August there was speculation that Bernie would insert an extra race at Jerez or Mugello, but ultimately it was decided to adhere to the calendar. For McLaren and Ferrari, the...
