The Japanese Grand Prix

Hunt leaves no doubt Fuji Speedway, October 23rd Although the Japanese Grand Prix is a new event to the Formula One World Championship series, a race under that title was first held as long ago as 1963. Then it was won by a certain P. Warr at the wheel of one of Colin Chapman's little Lotus 23B sports racing cars. That of course was Peter Warr, then a keen amateur racing driver, and more recently...

Water Wolf Racing

Almost exactly a year ago we were being introduced to the new Wolf racing car and the new team. Walter Wolf had financed the Frank Williams team in 1976, with the Harvey Postlethwaite-designed rubber-spring car, with a variety of second-class drivers.

Notes on the Cars at Monte Carlo

There was nothing startlingly new at Monte Carlo, but quite a lot of detail improvements and modifications to existing cars. However, the Scuderia Ferrari produced a brand new 312T2 car, number 027 in the series, and this was given to Regazzoni. The first of the T2 cars, number 025, was relegated to the role of "muletta" or the team spare. Lauda was still with his usual car, number 026, and as...

Formula One Teams for 1979

Lotus: Heading the 1979 list, naturally enough, is Team Lotus, no longer supported by John Player, the cigarette firm, while the cars will not be called John Player Specials (not that we at Motor Sport did call them by that name to us a Lotus is a Lotus).

DAVID MALSHER REASSESSES THE ASTONISHING FIRST SEASON OF WALTER WOLF'S ONE-CAR BAND WAITER WOLF, MID-1976, ICNEW FORMULA ONE HAD more to offer him than this.

The Formula One scene

The 1976 Formula One Season (the Formula One Constructors have successfully knocked the Grand out of Prix racing!) is surely one that everyone will be pleased to forget, though how all the faults are going to be corrected by the time the 1977 season starts is difficult to see. There is little point in re-capping in detail on what happened when, who won what and where, for it has all been recorded...
