Motor racing: Hakkinen rues his costly error

Italian Grand Prix: Frentzen takes advantage of McLaren driver's mistake to throw championship race wide open

Motor Racing: Irvine struggles to answer the faithful's prayers

IF MICHAEL SCHUMACHER is depressed by his inability to race at Monza - the spiritual home of Ferrari and the scene of his victory last year - it may be just as well for his recuperation that he is not here this weekend to cast an eye over the banners draped in the grandstands.

Motor Racing: Coulthard emerges as a contender

DAVID COULTHARD'S cover is blown. He believes Mika Hakkinen, his McLaren-Mercedes team-mate and the championship leader, now recognises his emergence as a genuine contender and that the Finn has to defend his title on two fronts.

Motor Racing: Irvine limitations leave Ferrari in despair

THE VERY public rift between the McLaren-Mercedes drivers at the Belgian Grand Prix served to deflect some of the attention from Ferrari's despair, but it was merely a temporary reprieve.

Belgian Grand Prix: Coulthard's victory over Hakkinen in absence of team orders aids Ferrari's pursuit of title

Motor racing: Villeneuve plays down his brush with disaster

EAU ROUGE. The greatest remaining challenge in motorsport. The Everest of a corner that separates the truly great drivers from mere pretenders. The place where both BAR cars of Jacques Villeneuve and Riccardo Zonta came to grief here yesterday in separate high-speed incidents.

Motor Racing: Ferrari fall in behind Irvine

TEAM ORDERS, curse or legitimate convenience of Formula One racing, depending on your viewpoint, were at the fore of concerns on a day that confirmed the ascendancy of McLaren-Mercedes.

Sports Letter: Todt trouble

Sir: It seems to me that Eddie Irvine's main problem in chasing the F1 drivers' title is not David Coulthard, nor Mika Hakkinen, but Jean Todt. With a car that is inferior to the McLarens, Eddie has scored points more consistently than any other driver this year, and one wonders what he has to do to win Todt's approval.

Formula One: McLaren's confidence tinged with caution

THE PENDULUM has swung again and all logic suggests the force will carry it beyond Ferrari's recall. Unsurprisingly, McLaren-Mercedes prefer a more cautious perspective.

Motor racing: Coulthard questions the fitness of Irvine

EDDIE IRVINE has the eight- point lead and the momentum yet he remains cautious about his prospects and the rival camp suggested yesterday that he might not be fit - in the purely physical sense - to sustain his championship challenge here.

MOTOR RACING; Ferrari's triumph inspires a fever

ALL NIGHT and into the early hours of this morning, a weekend death toll of 37 on Italy's roads and the latest political shenanigans were relegated down the order in the national radio news bulletins. The lead story was Ferrari's one-two success at the German Grand Prix, and Eddie Irvine's improbable climb to the top of the world championship.

Motoracing: Irvine sits on top of the world

EDDIE IRVINE reached his equivalent of the moon here yesterday, and probably found it was made of green cheese. This was one fantasy too much for the man from Northern Ireland.
