Ferrari took the maiden win, courtesy of Rubens Barrichello in the F2004, who produced a faultless performance. The Maranello squad took a clea...[Read more...]
1997 European Grand Prix: A Page from a Father's Book
1997 European Grand Prix: A Page from a Father's Book Twenty-two laps from the end of the European Grand Prix and everything was held in the balance. Then, suddenly, Jacques Villeneuve would draw from a page of his father's book and would help to produce a truly memorable moment in Formula One's history. The 1997 Formula One season was to be Jacques Villeneuve's opportunity to finally add the family name to the annals of Formula One champions. Jacques had come to Formula One and Williams in 1996. He would join another son of a Formula One drive...[Read more...]
1996 European Grand Prix: Villeneuve Is Back
1996 European Grand Prix: Villeneuve Is Back In the first Formula One race of the 1996 season a Villeneuve name would be back in Formula One for the first time in more than 14 years. Gilles' son Jacques would demonstrate his father's blood ran heavily through his veins when he qualified on pole for his very first race. Unfortunately, the Canadian would have to give way throughout the first three races of the season. But that would only set the stage for the Villeneuve name to return to Europe. Gilles Villeneuve would lose his life duri...[Read more...]

Bahrain GP – The expected epilogue
Bahrain GP – The expected epilogue Stefano Domenicali: 'This race provided an epilogue to a weekend which turned out to be as difficult as we had thought it would be, even before arriving in Bahrain. This circuit is particularly tough for our car and Sakhir's technical characteristics showed up the gaps in our performance. Now, we must forget this race and look ahead, because I don't like seeing our drivers fighting hard everywhere and then being unable to attack or defend on the straights. We've got an important test ahea...[Read more...]

High Efficiency Motors: 1958 Formula One Season
High Efficiency Motors: 1958 Formula One Season C.T. 'Tommy' Atkins would start out his career as a motorcycle racer riding Douglas motorcycles in the early 1930s. By the time the mid-to-late '50s rolled around, Atkins had moved on from racing, but not very far. Perhaps feeling a need to support up-and-coming drivers, Atkins would turn to providing rides, but in single-seater grand prix cars. Prior to the Second World War, Atkins would be in search of speed records on a motorcycle. Riding motorcycles, Atkins knew very well their ability t...[Read more...]
BMW congratulates Paul Rosche: The 'father' of the Formula One World Championship engine turns 80 today.
BMW congratulates Paul Rosche: The 'father' of the Formula One World Championship engine turns 80 today. Munich. Though he embarked on his well-earned retirement 15 years ago, whenever the name Paul Rosche is mentioned among BMW Group engine developers it resonates with reverence to this day. There's barely a higher accolade for the sporty performance of a new power unit than the statement: 'Paul Rosche will like it too.' The engineer who defined engine development at BMW for almost four decades, whose ideas led to legendary triumphs on the race track as well as definitively advancing produc...[Read more...]
MALAYSIAN GP – A HARD FOUGHT 12 POINTS
MALAYSIAN GP – A HARD FOUGHT 12 POINTS Sepang, 30 March – Fernando Alonso started from fourth on the grid and 56 laps later, he was fourth at the flag. It was a tough afternoon for him and even tougher for his Scuderia Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, who spiralled to the back of the pack after having to pit with a puncture, eventually fighting his way back to finish twelfth. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg secured a one-two finish for Mercedes, the company's first since the 1955 Italian Grand Prix, with Sebastian Vettel thir...[Read more...]

SEB THIRD IN SEPANG AS DAN IS FORCED TO RETIRE KUALA LUMPER, Malaysia – Sebastian claimed his first podium finish of the season with a solid third place at the Malaysian Grand Prix, but Daniel's hopes of fourth in the race were dashed by a pit stop problem during what should have been his final visit of the afternoon to the pit lane. While Sebastain claimed the spoils, it was Daniel who had the upper hand at the start. Sebastian made a good getaway when the lights went out from second on the grid and crossed the track in an attempt...[Read more...]

MALAYSIAN GP – FAMILIAR FRIDAY FACTORS
MALAYSIAN GP – FAMILIAR FRIDAY FACTORS Sepang, 28 March – While there is the usual excitement and sense of anticipation regarding Sunday's Malaysia Grand Prix, it seemed very much like business as usual in the Sepang paddock. Engineers and mechanics were going about their tasks almost as if these new Formula 1 cars had been around for a long while and were not just at their second race. However, like a swan gliding across a lake, beneath the surface there's frantic activity. While the two F14 T may look substantially the sa...[Read more...]

1982 German Grand Prix: Unfortunate Fortuity and Great Loss
1982 German Grand Prix: Unfortunate Fortuity and Great Loss On the podium at Imola in late-April of 1982, the look on Gilles Villeneuve's face would speak volumes. Then there would be the tragic events at Zolder just a couple of weeks later. But while many would want to point fingers at Villeneuve's teammate, the sad fact of the matter is that Didier Pironi and Gilles would compliment each other in so many ways that it would be inevitable there would be friction, perhaps even a collision. In fact, they were so connected, so complimentary of each other, t...[Read more...]
MALAYSIAN GP – ALONSO: 'MORE POTENTIAL THAN WE SAW IN AUSTRALIA'
MALAYSIAN GP – ALONSO: 'MORE POTENTIAL THAN WE SAW IN AUSTRALIA' Sepang, 27 March – A small room in the temporary Ferrari offices at the back of the paddock is where Fernando Alonso began his official duties today for the second round of the World Championship. After dismissing thoughts of a repeat of the 2012 race here, where the Spaniard drove brilliantly from ninth on the grid to win, with the words, 'that's something you only see once in life,' the topic turned to the 'new F1'. 'I think we need to give more time to see how the races are and how the show i...[Read more...]
SEB AND DAN LOOK AHEAD TO SEPANG
SEB AND DAN LOOK AHEAD TO SEPANG Sebastian Vettel We still have a lot of work to do with the car, but it was encouraging to see that our pace was better than expected in Australia. Hopefully we can build on that and start collecting some strong points in the next two races. Next stop is Kuala Lumpur, which I like as a city. Downtown can sometimes seem sterile, but then you turn a corner and the streets burst into life with the night markets. Whenever I have time, I try to go there and see what they have to offer. Looki...[Read more...]

MALAYSIAN GP – MAINTAINING RELIABILITY, IMPROVING EFFICIENCY
MALAYSIAN GP – MAINTAINING RELIABILITY, IMPROVING EFFICIENCY The prophets of doom were proved wrong in Melbourne, where we witnessed a reasonably interesting motor race with more finishers than predicted. Now, it's time for a very different scenario as Formula 1 heads for the heat, humidity and fast straights and corners of Sepang. In short, while Scuderia Ferrari, like the other ten teams, will have moved forward on the development front since Round 1, the Malaysian Grand Prix will up the ante in terms of the degree of difficulty everyone must face.

MALAYSIAN GP – HEAT, RAIN AND GOOD MEMORIES Maranello, 24 March – This weekend's race at Sepang will be the sixteenth Malaysian Grand Prix. All of them have been held at the 5.543 kilometre track, which is one of the most interesting on the calendar, notable for its suffocating heat, sudden downpours and high speed corners. Ferrari has won six times here, equivalent to a 40% success rate. The first race dates back to 1999 and marked Michael Schumacher's return to the cockpit after his accident in Silverstone. At the time, Eddie ...[Read more...]
