Brasilia G.P. Presidente Medici

Emerson Fittipaldi won the non-Championship Fl race at the Brasilia Capital with ease. Against a space age skyline, this picture illustrates the superb new track facilities, including the safety services access lane on either side of the road. Scheckter suffered tyre problems, but held second place almost throughout. Wilson Fittipaldi, back in the Brabham for one race, had a long struggle with...

Notes on the Cars at Buenos Aires

Ferrari: As with many other teams curing the winter, the Ferrari factory took three of their 1979 cars and dismantled them down to the last rivet and then built up new and redesigned cars from the bare bones. The cars they dismantled were 312T4/037, 039 and 041 and the new cars that resulted were 312T5/042, 043 and 044 of which Scheckter took the first, Villeneuve the second and third was the T-...

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Pace scores from Fittipaldi at home Sao Paulo, January 26th With only two weeks separating the Brazilian Grand Prix from the Argentine Grand Prix in January, most of the teams spent their time (depending on whether they were drivers or mechanics) either relaxing on beaches or sweating blood trying to ensure that their cars arrived at Sao Paulo's Interlagos circuit in time for the first practice...

The Swedish Grand Prix

Ferrari AgainAnderstorp, June 8th A very complete field of runners turned out for the Swedish Grand Prix and all twenty-six were guaranteed a start as the Anderstorp Raceway is large and spacious. As it was built on a flat piece of waste land there are no interesting contours for the circuit to follow and in consequence the corners and straights are all very geometric requiring a car to be...

Notes on the Cars at Monaco

THE McLAREN team had a new tweak on M23/9, which World Champion Fittipaldi used all during practice and in the race itself. This was a lever on the left of the cockpit coupled to the ends of the front suspension anti-roll bar by Bowden cables. Moving the lever backwards or forwards caused the roll bar arms to extend or contract, thus allowing the driver to alter the roll stiffness of the front...

Notes on the cars at Zeltweg

The greatest interest in the paddock at the Austrian Grand Prix centred around the re-appearance of the Scuderia Ferrari, after being missing from the Dutch Grand Prix and the German Grand Prix. During that time Jacky Ickx more or less severed his connections with the team, so that the appearance of a single car at Zeltweg, with Arturo Merzario in attendance showed exactly how the situation stood...

The Grand Prix of France

A shake-up for Formula One Castellet, July 1st. As the French started their summer holiday season and headed for the Mediterranean coast and the beaches, the Grand Prix circus headed for the Mediterranean coast and the Paul Ricard circuit, and the only time the two parties came together was on the crowded Autoroute going south and on the terribly slow road from Aix-en-Provence to Toulon, off...

Dutch Grand Prix

An unhappy affair Zandvoort, Holland, July 29th The Dutch Grand Prix got off to a bad start when the mechanics arrived in the racing transporters the day before practice was due to begin and found that they could not get into the paddock as workmen were still building it. This was part of a huge facelift that Zandvoort was undergoing, for last year it lost its permit to hold the Grand Prix as...

The South African Grand Prix

Scheckter is the new national hero, Kyalami, March 1st The six-week break between the Brazilian Grand Prix at the end of January and the South African Grand Prix on March 1st provided welcome relief for most Grand Prix teams, giving them time to reflect on their own individual situation after the first two events of the season and enabling several of them either to complete new machinery or try...

1972 British Grand Prix race report - Uninspiring

  Amidst three days of fun and games in the Brands Hatch Stadium the British Grand Prix took place over 76 laps of the full circuit, and thanks to John Player Ltd. and a very large crowd of paying customers, the whole affair was considered a great success by all except those who had to work and live in the grotty paddock, or try and operate from the mini-pits, and those drivers who crashed or got...
