Book review: 1994 the Untold Story by Ibrar Malik

The Formula One was dominated years by McLaren and Williams. Both won several titles during the 1980s and the 1990s, until 1994 arrived. With Senna moving towards Williams and McLaren left with Peugeot engines. And Benetton… well they had some German Michael Schumacher. The season would be full of scandals, false claims and sadly the loss of Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger. 1994 the untold Story by Ibrar Malik goes

Boek review: 1994 The untold Story door Ibrar Malik

1994 is misschien wel het meest controversiële seizoen dat de Formule 1 heeft gekend in haar rijke geschiedenis. Het seizoen werd voornamelijk gekenmerkt door het git zwarte weekend op Imola. Waarbij Ronald Ratzenberger en Ayrton Senna het leven lieten. Maar waar vooral Benetton en Michael Schumacher de dienst uit maakte in vele controverses en betichtingen van vals spel. Ibrar malik probeert met zijn boek “1994 The Untold Story of a

Ibrar on what Caused Senna ‘s Crash?

One of the most fundamental mysteries of the 1994 Formula One season was why Ayrton Senna, one of the sport’s greatest ever drivers, crash fatally at a relatively easy corner? To this day, no-one knows for certain why Ayrton Senna crashed. Many theories of varying credibility have been put forward. My personal view is Senna, desperate to break free from the car behind, carried a bit too much speed into

The old rumour mill; Verstappen and Williams

Welcome to the fourth episode of the Old Rumour Mill of Formula One. A special blog dedicated to the old rumours of Formula One. Many rumours appeared during the years. Some were just silly “Alain Prost to move to Benetton in 1992”. Others were just amazing to read “Pedro Diniz to move to Ferrari in 2000”. Every week a new episode of the Old Rumour Mill of Formula One will

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

Ayrton Senna, the legend we lost 25 years ago.

The day after Roland Ratzenberger died during a crash with his Simtek, the circus prepared themselves to start the Grand Prix of San Marino at Imola. It was a sunny Sunday, and it seemed everyone was ready to race hoping no more accident would happen. Sadly it would become worse, during the start Lehto stalled his Benetton and Pedro Lamy in his Lotus hit the back of Letho’s car. It

25 years ago; Imola 1994 changed the Formula One

Imola 1994, the San Marino Grand Prix, held in the weekend of 30th April would change the Formula One completely. There is only one word needed to describe this Grand Prix weekend… horrible! What happened in 1994 was something never seen in modern Formula One. In 1982 the last fatality happened with the dead of Riccardo Paletti in the Osella, just a few weeks after Gilles Villeneuve sadly died. Imola

Mike’s memories of Imola 1994

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of that horrific race weekend and the passing of two F1 drivers there will be 3 separate blogs over the coming days. Tomorrow’s blog pays tribute to Roland Ratzenberger and how his accident helped spark an important safety legacy within F1. Wednesday’s blog will remember Ayrton Senna’s final 24 hours. However, today’s blog gives a more personal recollection. Mike Fairholme is well known and respected
