Just as Hamilton held out in his discussions with Toto Wolff, so Senna went into 1993 without having signed a new McLaren deal with Ron Dennis.When he finally signed the initial contract covered less than a third of the season. Only later would he agree to do the remainder of the races.Throughout that year his participation each weekend was subject to a contractual clause that would keep McLaren’s legal team and accountants on their toes. If the team didn’t pay, Senna wouldn’t play… “I remember it was a million dollars a race!,” recalls then McLaren operations director Martin Whitmarsh. “In 24 and a half years I was at McLaren we were profitable in F1 and our other businesses every single year apart from 1992-'93, when we lost £1.5m, and we were paying Ayrton a million dollars a race…”The delay in putting pen to paper was primarily a result of Honda’s withdrawal from the sport, announced at Monza in September 1992.The … [Read more...] about The Senna saga that Hamilton’s new F1 deal avoids
The Boost Mobile boss has been a long-time backer of Courtney, but upped his support of the 2010 champion during a difficult 2020 campaign. That included the short-lived Team Sydney adventure , as well as the lifeline deal mid-way through the season to grab the fourth seat at Tickford Racing . Despite not testing the Tickford Mustang once before his first race, and effectively learning on the fly across the remainder of the season, Courtney was able to bank 12 Top 10 finishes, including a second at Hidden Valley. While impressive given the circumstances, Adderton is expecting more this time around given Courtney will have a full pre-season under his belt. "We really didn't have a lot of chance to prepare [in 2020]," Adderton said. "I think JC's got a better chance this year. He knows the car. His first test day [last year] was a race, which is always hard. "You want to test the car and get to learn it, but he built up speed. "But it's a big year, and … [Read more...] about Courtney expected to ‘step up’ in second Tickford season
Victoria was plunged back into lockdown late last week to help contain a COVID-19 outbreak linked to hotel quarantine. With six teams based in Melbourne, the five-day shutdown forced the Winton test to be postponed to this Friday , and cast doubt over whether the season-opening Mount Panorama 500 would go ahead later this month as planned. But, after a nervous few days, the outbreak looks to have been contained and Victoria is set to open up at midnight tonight. That means Friday's Winton test can go ahead, and, barring a change in circumstances, the Melbourne teams will then be able to cross the New South Wales border for the Mount Panorama 500 at the end of the month. The green light in Victoria is also welcome news for the second round of the 2021 Supercars season, currently scheduled to take place at Sandown in Melbourne on March 20-21. It will also open the door for the second round of the TCR/S5000 seasons at Phillip Island to go ahead on its new March … [Read more...] about Lockdown relief for Supercars opener
An agonising 13-year wait for a British winner in the WRC finally came to an end on Sunday. Kris Meeke responded to his critics in emphatic style with victory in Argentina, a car-breaker of a rally in which just about every leading runner experienced trouble of one kind or another. It was precisely the sort of event where the 35-year-old had ample opportunity to live up to his reputation and squander the healthy lead his rivals' woes had gifted him, but British rally fans were spared heartbreak as Meeke held on to win by 18 seconds from Citroen teammate Mads Ostberg. The Ulsterman's triumph was a timely one, as the pressure had been mounting just to bank a solid result in South America following crashes in each of the first three events of the season. But, while the importance of Meeke's victory for his career can barely be overstated, its impact on the currently moribund level of interest in rallying in the UK is an altogether different question. The good old days … [Read more...] about Can Meeke revive British interest in rallying?
