Tyrrell Rothmans a forgotten deal

At the end of the 80’s Tyrrell was not the top team as it once was, though still the team managed to score points and podiums. At the end of 1989, it seemed that 1990 would be the birth of the new Tyrrell team with lots of opportunities, chances and more over a title sponsor, in Rothmans, willing to invest in the team and the Formula One. Sadly, it was

Ghinzani; From Osella driver, to “almost” Osella owner!

1989 seemed to be a perfect year for the small Italian team Osella Squadra Corse.  Cosworth was supplying the team with engines, while Pirelli improved their qualifying and race tyres. Sadly, 1989 would prove to be the last year for the Osella team with Enzo Osella as team owner. At the end of the season the team was for sale, and believe it or not Piercarlo Ghinzani was interested to

The Mexican GLAS F1 project

During the early 1990s, Formula one was booming by many investors. Commercial managers from companies saw the opportunity to gain much more customers and money by investing in the Formula One.

The recent driver changes aren’t special at all!

I heard many people joking and complaining about the fact that Toro Rosso will have a fourth driver this season in their cars.

Due the disappointing results of Jolyon Palmer he had to leave the Renault F1 Team, and Carlos Sainz took his seat. This meant an empty seat at Toro Rosso. Daniil Kvyat returned to 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
