Ikuzawa; the team that became Stewart Grand Prix

How Zakspeed tried to re-enter the Formula One

Erich Zakowski left Formula One at the end of January 1990 when his Zakspeed team tested their Zakspeed–Yamaha 891B for the final time at Estoril and then Paul Ricard. The F1 project had become too expensive and after a disastrous 1989 season the team’s main sponsors ended their support of Zakspeed. However, as with many other former F1 team bosses, Erich’s son Peter Zakowski wanted to return Zakspeed to Formula

The story of the BMW S192 and the Bravo S931

It’s difficult to tell the story of the BMW S192 without describing what happened after the car was penned by Nick Wirth back in 1991. Four years later the car was still in use by Simtek, and it was still being developed. Jos Verstappen showed the Formula One world back then that the Simtek S951 was a fast car by qualifying in 14th place for the Argentinean GP. In the

Zakspeed-Yamaha 891B

The Zakspeed-Yamaha 891B was the last Zakspeed car to be driven on a circuit. After the team's biggest sponsor left they had no other option but to stop their Formula One activities. The Zakspeed 891B was slightly updated compared to the 891 they entered the 1989 season with. In January the 891B was tested twice during Formula One winter test sessions. The "new" Zakspeed seemed to be pretty good judging

Coloni C3B and Coloni C3C

Coloni used two types of car during the 1990 season. They debuted with the updated Coloni C3B (also known as the FC189B) which was a car that wasn't impressive at all. Later on Coloni introduced the updated C3C (also known as the FC189C). Unfortunately the C3C wasn't an improvement and not what you would expect from a Formula One car. Coloni's results in 1990 show just how terrible both the
