2001 Canadian Grand Prix: No Brotherly Love Here
 Though highly regarded from the moment he set his sights on a career in motor racing, Ralf Schumacher would face the unfortunate case of constantly being compared to his older brother Michael. The moment he arrived in Formula One, however, everyone in and around the series looked forward to that day when both brothers would be on equal footing and the two could really battle it out for top honors. Everyone looked and waited for that perfect battlefield. And, in 2001, on a small island in the St....[Read more...]
1999: European Grand Prix: Ralf Deflated but Buoyant
 Not often is an individual held in higher esteem for coming up short. But, in a sport where there are many things that can override a fantastic result, Ralf Schumacher would pull up lame, and yet, would come away a sheer winner. Ralf Schumacher's stock had been on the rise even before he reached Formula One. Being in the same family of a World Champion automatically raises the stock of an individual. However, being the brother of a two-time World Champion has everyone hedging their bets even ...[Read more...]
1999 French Grand Prix: Frentzen and Jordan Keep Their Heads to Win
 The 1999 French Grand Prix would seemingly be a race in which every driver and spectator would have liked to miss. However, had that been the case, Formula One would have lost one of its most memorable races and Heinz-Harald Frentzen would have missed out on his second career victory. The French Grand Prix was just the seventh round of the World Championship in 1999. However, already by that point in time the season had become a rather processional affair. Eddie Irvine had demonstrated he was...[Read more...]
The Making of the Seven Star Spin - Burj Al Arab
ABU DHABI – After celebrating our fourth consecutive win of the Drivers' and Constructors' Formula One Championships on top of the Burj Al Arab, we provided a behind the scenes photographic account of how its 750 bhp Formula One car did donuts and burnouts 210 meters above the sea on a helipad 24 meters wide. After a series of rigorous tests on the ground and then on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab to test its surface for weight tolerance, grip and movement, the Red Bull Seven Star Spi...[Read more...]
1997 Hungarian Grand Prix: Arrows Misses the Target and Wins
By far, the largest ovation on the podium would go to the man that had finished in 2nd place. In the mind of just about everyone assembled around the circuit or watching the race around the globe, Damon Hill had proven the move to Arrows was not an errant shot made by a reigning World Champion. Arrows had been the consummate tail-end team, yet on this day, even though they missed the target, they would win. There have been many David versus Goliath stories; many stories of the underdog coming...[Read more...]
