Monaco Grand Prix

Maldonaldo has the class to rise again at Monaco GP

Pastor Maldonaldo wasn't a name you'd probably have in the frame for this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. But the Venezuelan fancies his chances, and not only because of his triumph last time out in Spain. He's won a couple of times there already in GP2.

Too early to crown Vettel as next king

Pity the remaining four circuits waiting to host a round of the Formula One championship. Pity particularly India, a country that has been waiting so long for its turn to take a bow on the F1 stage and which now faces hosting a 'dead rubber', to use a tennis term.

Former Playboy playmate plugs her 'perfect life'

She's blond, buxom and a bit of a bimbo. Sounds perfect for an E! Channel reality show. Former Miss Sweden and Playboy playmate Victoria Silvstedt was just in town to plug her programme, My Perfect Life, which starts airing in Asia later this year. The big-haired stunner (below) spent most of her two days here holed up in the Four Seasons Hotel doing press.

Mr Safety hangs up his helmet, but 43-year love affair with Macau continues

For the first time in 43 years, Klaus Doerr can watch the Macau Grand Prix and relax. He spent his first 10 meetings pumped up to win races on the Guia circuit, and for the remaining 33 he has been revving along it to save lives as chief of the rescue and safety team.

Tim Noonan

It's always nice to be able to pinpoint that moment when a performer appeared on the scene that had the potential to not only completely alter the sporting landscape, but the social one as well. Maybe, just maybe, we were treated to one of those incredibly rare and seminal moments last week.

Stock cars should suit unpredictable Colombian 'monster'

Richard Drew

So the 'monster' is moving on. Juan Pablo Montoya, the Colombian whose antics on the track can be pretty unpredictable, has made a career move right out of left field. He's decided to leave F1 and head over to the United States and take part in Nascar in 2007.

Living it up with Sir Cliff at the Monaco Grand Prix

I had never been to the south of France. I had never been to the glamorous Riviera. But recently I put that right by heading off on a day trip to the Monaco Grand Prix.

Glamour and wealth make for an intoxicating combination

Glitz and Glamour. There, I've got them out of the way, the two most overused words when discussing the Monaco Grand Prix. It's not as if they're inaccurate terms, but you do wish people would consult a thesaurus once in a while.

'Doctor' Rossi offers best medicine for Formula One health

Unless you are a motor racing enthusiast or over a certain age, you probably won't have heard of John Surtees. Yet the British speedster is something of a legend to petrol heads and for good reason. He's the only man to have won the world championship on both two wheels and four.

Stipes appear blinkered over All Win shock

The issue of what is a legitimate subject to come under scrutiny from the stewards raised its head last week with the inquiry that never was in the Champions Mile and the still-rumbling Honest Dragon affair at Happy Valley.

Ligier breaks 15-year drought

French Formula One racing team Ligier last night scored its first victory in 15 years, when Olivier Panis took an action-packed Monaco Grand Prix in the Mugen Honda.

Only four cars finished the rain-affected race, in which defending champion Michael Schumacher crashed after only a few corners and championship leader Damon Hill pulled out on the 40th lap.

Hill dedicates win to Senna

DAMON Hill produced the perfect homage to Formula One legend Ayrton Senna yesterday by winning a drama-packed San Marino Grand Prix.

The Englishman won his second race in a row, his Williams Renault beating Jean Alsei's Ferrari - the same one-two as in Argentina - and Gerhard Berger, also in a Ferrari, in an event that had everything.

Driven to distraction by threat of death

MOTOR racing is dangerous enough at the best of times but last Sunday I had to get through the German Grand Prix with the added complication of a death threat if I showed any signs of beating Michael Schumacher.
