Fears Of A Clown

One of the old guard who should move over for youth, or the finest unfulfilled talent of his generation? Mark Skewis takes a look at Johnny Herbert's F1 career.

Which was why, when Johnny Herbert crossed the...

Interview: Eddie Jordan

"I believe. . ." Eddie Jordan is one of those Irishmen who has kissed the Blarney Stone, but the fact that he has managed to climb the greasy motor racing pole quite as quickly as he has shows he is also a tough cookie. A banker by profession, although a racer by inclination even after hanging up his own helmet in 1980 to form his own Formula Three team, he understands just what makes the world...

Eddie Jordan knows the mild taste of Formula One success. 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 Eddie Jordan

He’s the racer-turned-team boss whose wheeling and dealing helped him scale the heights of Formula 1 – and bring a sense of fun to the grid It’s safe to assume that we will never again see the like of Jordan Grand Prix. As the financial and political qualifications for entry into Formula 1 become ever tougher, and the paddock becomes more and more serious and straight-faced, so the possibility of...

Modern Times

In the Barcelona paddock, the main topic of conversation wasn't the continuing domination of F1 by Michael Schumacher, the perceptibly widening gap between Ferrari and Williams, or the apparent lack of power produced by the engine that Mercedes and Ilmor have built for McLaren this year. It was Jordan's recent decision to get rid of almost 60 of its staff, starting with long-serving managing...

A baby's ability to learn: Michael Schumacher

"He was like a baby. By that I mean he had a baby's ability to learn. He learnt in one year what other people learnt in three or four years..." So says former Mercedes sports boss Jochen Neerpasch of his junior driver Michael Schumacher.

A man of the people

Time is money to Eddie Jordan; usually it's someone else's time and certainly someone else's money. "Money is nonstop", he says cheerfully, and so is he. Any conversation with him that lasts more than 10 minutes is inevitably interrupted. This time it's yet another phone call, for which he excuses himself politely. "That'll be another $3.5 million if they want it," he says brusquely, a man used...
