  • 1991 Mexican Grand Prix: Amidst The Turmoil, Patrese Emerges Supreme 1991 Mexican Grand Prix: Amidst The Turmoil, Patrese Emerges Supreme

    In the previous race, Williams-Renault had come up about a mile short. And, after having served the team well from 1987 onwards, Patrese had come up short in his bid to be Williams' number one driver. However, in a city that, at least at that point in time, was turned upside-down with crime and corruption, Patrese would demonstrate he had more than enough in hand to challenge the Formula One field, and his teammate.

    Back during the 1987 season Nigel Mansell would be driving with Williams when he was injured during qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix. After some negotiations, it would be decided that Riccardo Patrese should take over his seat for the final race of the season.
  • Maria Teresa de Filippis: 1958 Formula One Season Maria Teresa de Filippis: 1958 Formula One Season

    Maria Teresa's route to motor racing would be, as some have been, as a result of a bet. That age old question as to which gender was better-suited to one career over another would be the motivating principle in de Filippis' racing endeavors.

  • Didier Pironi: Reputation Overshadows Ability Didier Pironi: Reputation Overshadows Ability

    The error in judgment in Imola would turn tragic at Zolder. The result would be a ruined reputation for Didier Pironi, a man that did not, and still does not, deserve all the acrimony. But unfortunately, it will be that apparent reputation that will be remembered far and above his ability.

    Yes, Pironi's teammate would be the much-loved and talented Gilles Villeneuve, but to think Pironi didn't deserve a drive with Scuderia Ferrari is a terrible falsehood. French Formula Renault champion in 1974 and the French Formula Super Renault champion in 1976, Pironi's early racing career would be filled with nothing but success.

    Born in Villecresnes, France in March of 1952, Didier would be just 20 years of age when he earned Pilot Elf sponsorship following his enrollment in the Paul Ricard driving school. Though not a racer from the earliest of ages, he would show his skills at each and every level and would prove he had the talent to drive amongst the best. Furthermore, Didier had the kind of mind that enabled him to compete amongst the best.

    On a rather overcast day in early May 1982, many Formula One, and Canadian, racing fans would be left with promises unfulfilled. Their hero, the great wheel-to-wheel racer Gilles Villeneuve, was dead. There would be no World Championship for the man everyone believed was the heir-apparent. But his line wouldn't end with him. He would have a son and that son would not only chart his own course, he would fulfill the promise that had been left torn and broken against that catch-fencing in Zolder, Belgium.

    Jacques would be just eleven years old when his father ended up against the catch-fencing having been flung from his Ferrari across the track as it disintegrated in mid-air as it turned over and over again. With his father's death that day in Belgium, the hopes of many Gilles fans and Canadian racing fans would be left unfulfilled. In many respects, Ferrari's hopes would also be dashed as it would be 21 years before a Ferrari driver would win the Formula One World Championship. However, in spite of his father's terrible death, Jacques would never deviate from what had been the family's occupation. In fact, the tragedy would only seem to accelerate the young man's growth.

  • Bernard C. Ecclestone: 1958 Formula One Season Bernard C. Ecclestone: 1958 Formula One Season

    The name Ecclestone is synonymous with Formula One. Many would say he is Formula One. However, in 1958, he would be just another retired driver attempting his hand at running and managing a team. He would pick a winner, unfortunately that had been a while ago.

    Connaught Engineering had made an impression with its A-Type chassis. In the hands of drivers like Mike Hawthorn, the small British firm would show that it had the ability to be considered among the best of the rest, behind the Ferrari 500 and Maserati's A6GCM. But then came the updated Formula One regulations in 1954 and Connaught appeared to be left behind with a fragile car that no longer had the speed to compete. No speed and no reliability were terrible characteristics and Connaught would set about changing this.
  • Ecurie Eperon d'Or: 1958 Formula One Season Ecurie Eperon d'Or: 1958 Formula One Season

    In 1958, Christian Goethals would try his hand at single-seater Formula One racing. That one attempt would come on a day of tragedy and would lead the Belgian driver to feel much safer giving the spurs to sportscars from then on.

    Christian Goethals would be born in August of 1928 in Heule, Belgium. A suburb of the city of Kortrijk, Heule would be more famous for producing professional cyclists around the turn of the 20th century. Drawing its name from the meaning for 'ditch', there would be little reason to expect much of anything good coming from Heule in the province of West-Flanders.
  • 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 to produce a great deal of power from such a small package. He understood highly-efficient motors. During the war, however, Atkins would turn his skill toward making machine tools.
