1973 Niki Lauda race used gloves SIGNED by Niki.
Lauda became a racing driver despite his family's disapproval. After starting out with a Mini, Lauda moved on into Formula Vee, as was normal in Central Europe, but rapidly moved up to drive in private Porsche and Chevron sports cars. His career seemed to be going nowhere in particular until he took out a large £30,000 GBP bank loan, secured by a life insurance policy, to buy his way into the fledgling March team as a Formula Two (F2) driver in 1971. Because of his family's disapproval he had an ongoing feud with his family over his racing ambitions and abandoned further contact. He was quickly promoted to the F1 team, but drove for March in F1 and F2 in 1972. Although the F2 cars were good (and Lauda's driving skills impressed March principal Robin Herd), March's 1972 F1 season was catastrophic. Lauda, in despair and deep debt, briefly contemplated suicide but finally took out another bank loan to buy his way into the BRM team in 1973. Lauda was instantly quick, but the team was in decline; his big break came when his BRM teammate Clay Regazzoni left to rejoin Ferrari in 1974 and team owner Enzo Ferrari asked him what he thought of Lauda. Regazzoni spoke so favourably of Lauda that Ferrari promptly went and signed him, paying Niki enough to clear his debts.

GRAND PRIX RESULTS: SOUTH AFRICAN GP, 1982

South African GP
Kyalami
January 23, 1982

77 Laps, 4.104 km

The new season began early and in problematic fashion with the drivers going on strike because of a form which they had to sign in order to get a superlicence. This led to an unpleasant weekend of controversy.

The winter months had seen several important changes. Brabham had continued the development of the new BMW turbocharged engine and this appeared in the two new BT50 chassis. Nelson Piquet was joined in the team by Riccardo Patrese. With Siegfried Stohr having quit F1 Arrows had hired Marc Surer and Mauro Baldi but in pre-season testing in Kyalami Surer had a big accident at Leeukop corner and broken both feet and so the team hired Brian Henton.

Williams had lost Alan Jones but had hired Keke Rosberg from Fittipaldi to be Carlos Reutemann's teammate and the pair continued to race with FW07-based cars. Fittipaldi was struggling and ran only one car for Chico Serra.

McLaren had an updated version of the MP4/1 for John Watson and Niki Lauda, back from retirement after two years away. Andrea de Cesaris had moved across to Alfa Romeo to partner Bruno Giacomelli, replacing Mario Andretti, who had returned to American racing. Renault retained Alain Prost and Rene Arnoux while Ferrari continued with Gilles Villeneuve and Didier Pironi although Harvey Postlethwaite had designed the new 126 C2 for the pair.

The Talbot Ligier team continued with the old Matra V12 engines and hired Eddie Cheever to partner Jacques Laffite. Lotus continued with Elio de Angelis and Nigel Mansell in B-versions of the Lotus 87 while Tyrrell replaced Cheever with Slim Borgudd as Michele Alboreto's partner. Ensign battled on with new signing Roberto Guerrero and Theodore hired Derek Daly while Toleman had developed the old car but retained Derek Warwick, who was partnered by Italian Teo Fabi. ATS had a new D6 chassis and Manfred Winkelhock and Eliseo Salazar was hired to drive. Osella retained Jean-Pierre Jarier and took on a young Italian called Riccardo Paletti.

In addition March returned to F1 with a new team with Rothmans sponsorship and Robin Herd-designed 821s for Jochen Mass and new boy Raul Boesel.

On the tire front Ferrari had switched to Goodyear.

Because of the drivers' strike practice was confined to one day and so the grid was rather hit-and-miss. Arnoux was on pole with Piquet second and Villeneuve third. Then came Patrese, Prost and Pironi, making it six turbocharged cars in the first six places. The best of the rest were the two Williams's with Rosberg quicker than Reutemann. They were followed by Watson, Alboreto and Laffite.

In the race Arnoux took the lead but Prost made a good start to power his way to second place by the end of the first lap. Then came the two Ferraris with Villeneuve ahead of Pironi. Then came Rosberg under pressure from Patrese, Laffite, Alboreto and the rest. Piquet had made a bad start and was down in 13th position.

Early on Piquet went off because of fading brakes and retired. Soon afterwards Rosberg dropped behind Patrese. Not long afterwards Villeneuve went out with an engine failure and while Rosberg hoped all the turbos would follow things began to go wrong for him. His gear lever fell apart and he soon slipped behind Reutemann. Things changed at the front when Arnoux came upon backmarkers on lap 14 and had to lift. In a flash Prost was ahead. Pironi was third with Patrese fourth followed by Reutemann and Rosberg. On lap 18 Patrese disappeared with an engine failure and six laps later Pironi pitted for new tires and dropped out of the action. This meant that Watson and Lauda were fifth and sixth. That ordered remained unchanged until Pironi came charging back and overtook Lauda. On lap 41 Prost stopped for tires, leaving Arnoux in the lead but the little Frenchman's recovery drive was even more impressive than Pironi and so he took second place a lap after the Ferrari driver had got ahead of Rosberg. Alain then chased after Arnoux and took the lead with 10 laps to go. Pironi's race ended early with engine trouble and then four laps from the finish Arnoux slipped behind Reutemann. Lauda finished fourth having overtaken Watson and Rosberg

1992 Penske test used Fittipaldi Gloves signed by both Fittipaldi and Senna.

On this day, in 1992, Ayrton Senna tested a Penske Indy Car at Phoenix, at ex-McLaren driver Emerson Fittipaldi’s request.

Speaking of the car, Ayrton said: “It was like having a new toy. Everything was new to me. I had to get used to driving with a gear lever again, to a clutch pedal. In a way it’s more for the driver, which is great. The important thing is that the competition can be decided by the drivers, not the cars. I think that is where Formula 1 has been wrong, especially last season.

The Penske reminded me of the old days in Formula 1 where human side was the most important thing. Today Formula 1 is so sophisticated that the computers do most of the driving for you. If you have a clever computer, you are in good shape. If you have a monkey one, you are in trouble.

For the first time in some time, racing was fun again. It was a tremendous challenge, but I think it has rejuvenated me

1993 Gerhard race used Ferrari Racing visor.
Frustrated by the perspective of another year playing second-fiddle to Senna, Berger was persuaded by his countryman Niki Lauda to return to the Italian team in 1993 as Lauda felt Berger brought valuable experience with him from his partnership with Senna. The active ride suspension made the car unpredictable to drive and the Ferrari F93A failed to record a single victory and spent the majority of the season competing for the lower points. Berger's best result was third position at the 1993 Hungarian Grand Prix. Berger had a number of spectacular incidents during the season including a clash with rookie Michael Andretti at the start of the 1993 Brazilian Grand Prix and a dramatic impact with the armco at the 1993 Portuguese Grand Prix having just exited the pits. The 1993 Monaco Grand Prix was perhaps where Berger displayed his fighting qualities best of all, obtaining second fastest lap before he attempted an opportunistic move on Damon Hill's Williams at Lowes hairpin while challenging for second position. The Austrian was forced to retire.

1996 Michael Schumacher Race used Bell visor worn. Yellow signature on visor.

Schumacher finished third in the drivers' championship in 1996 and helped Ferrari to second place in the constructors' championship ahead of his old team Benetton. He won three races, more than the team's total tally for the period from 1991 to 1995. During the initial part of the 1996 season, the car had had reliability trouble and Schumacher did not finish 6 of the 16 races. He took his first win for Ferrari at the Spanish Grand Prix, where he lapped the entire field up to third place in the wet. In the French Grand Prix Schumacher qualified in pole position, but suffered engine failure on the race's formation lap. However at Spa-Francorchamps, Schumacher used well-timed pit-stops to fend off Williams' Jacques Villeneuve. Following that, at Monza, Schumacher won in front of the tifosi. Schumacher's ability, combined with the improving reliability of Ferrari, enabled him to end the season putting up a challenge to eventual race and championship winner Damon Hill at the Suzuka.
