“Reflections: ‘Prost victorious as Piquet disqualified – 1982 Brazilian Grand Prix (Rd 2)’”

With the 1982 Argentine Grand Prix lost due to lingering uncertainties within the sport, Formula One finally arrived in South America for the Brazilian Grand Prix in mid-March and although two months had passed since the infamous South African Grand Prix, ill feeling remained within the paddock and the outer reaches of Formula One itself.

“Remembering the Birmingham Superprix”

In 1985, the International Formula 3000 replaced the defunct European F2 Series as the final stepping stone before Formula 1. Come 1986, F3000 altered its schedule slightly to include races at Imola, Bugatti Le Mans and Jarama; however the destination that stood out like a sore thumb was "Birmingham".

“Reflections: Stewart Shines in Iberian Sun – 1970 Spanish Grand Prix”

Jackie Stewart had relatively few complaints about the opening to the 1970 Formula 1 season. Having claimed his first title several months previously, the Scot's defence began well with a podium under South Africa's hot, dry sun in Kyalami.

‘Luiz Razia: “Today is a challenge for us”’

Luiz Razia cuts the shape of a rather pre-occupied gentleman – with some good reason too.

We spent a few minutes together to discuss the current title fight, Brazilians in motorsport and maturity behind the wheel.

“Felipe Nasr: ‘Brazil’s shining light.’”

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that it is twenty-one years since Ayrton Senna’s third and final title, but since Senna’s untimely death at Imola in May 1994, the country has not had a world champion. GP2 rookie and 2011 British Formula 3 Champion Felipe Nasr is hoping to turn the tide.

“James Calado: ‘I’m ready for F1’”

There is a brash confidence to James Calado. The Worcestershire native certainly holds himself well and although he does not yet swagger, there is a temerity in his approach to motorsport. A swagger would definitely be a little too much. Unflappable – now there’s a word, not often used enough, to describe Lotus’ youthful rookie.

“Andre Lotterer: Conquering of the forests”

Audi were out in force at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend, so it is no surprise that at least one of the Pro Cup entries picked up the overall win at the end of twenty-four hours. Before the race, I caught up with Audi racer Andre Lotterer to gather his thoughts about the event, night racing and of Spa itself.
