Autosport wrote:Arnoux frustrated at Theodore

Theodore driver Rene Arnoux has expressed his frustrations with the team after a fourth consecutive failure to escape Pre-Qualifying at the Spanish Grand Prix. "We're not understanding the car at the moment... to be honest with you, it drives like a boat."

Autosport wrote:Unrest at McLaren

Despite a strong opening race, McLaren have made a poor start to the 1980 season - failing to score since Argentina. Sources close to the team have said that current team boss Teddy Mayer is "literally pulling his hair out" in an attempt to steady the listing ship. The news comes as major backer Marlboro is reportedly planning a major investment into US open wheel racing, possibly at the expense of Woking outfit.

Incomprehensible Italian rambling. Your mate Vinny down the pub said it's about Formula One, but he cant tell you much more as he's not been to Italy since he was 3 and his mum forbids Italian in the house as it reminds her of his long lost dad

According to sources in both organisations, the Formula 2 team Project Four Racing will merge with Marlboro Team McLaren. Officially, the merger will only be executed by the end of 1980, but the leading structures are changing with immediate effect.

Teddy Mayer, supposedly at the behest of title sponsor Marlboro, will make way for Project Four Racing team owner Ron Dennis at the top of McLaren. Talented Wembley-born designer John Barnard is expected to start working on the 1981 McLaren chassis soon.

Autosport wrote:Arnoux to be shown the Theodoor?

Rene Arnoux could come under fire from team boss Teddy Yip after making disparaging comments about the team at the Spanish Grand Prix. Following another failure to pre-qualify on Friday morning, Arnoux said:

"Teddy [Yip] convinced me there was a project, there were goals, there was a plan...if there is, we need it now.I feel like I'm driving a misfiring Renault 12 around a Carrefour on a Saturday morning trying to find the last parking space."

It remains to be seen how the team will treat Arnoux after publically speaking out against them. Autosport approached Thedore for a comment.


La Gazetta dello Sport wrote:Colombo steps down as driver

After four races and four failures to pre-qualify, Alberto Colombo has relinquished driving duties for his own Riviera team. The official announcement is that he's looking to "highlight young talent" but sources close to the team say that money is fast running out, with lira in such short supply that espresso rations have been halved.

FISA ruled today that Aresnio Matarazzo is suspended for one grand prix after starting the Belgian Grand Prix despite having failed to qualify. The Italian, after his teammate withdrew from the race after a starting line incident seriously injured an Osella mechanic trying to restart his car, took to the track from the pitlane. He was black flagged and disqualified from the event.

"I thought I had the light after Luciano withdrew." Matarazzo replied, and gave no further comment.

Osella will have Formula Two driver Patrick Gaillard run in place of Matarazzo for the Monaco Grand Prix. Osella declined to give further comment on the starting line accident and Matarazzo's disqualification.

Autosport wrote:Startline Calamity at Zolder

The start of the Belgian Grand Prix was marred by an accident which saw Osella mechanic Mario Rossi rushed to hospital. Rossi, 32, raced onto the grid to try and restart Luciano Sighinolfi's car after the Italian appeared to have stalled on the grid. However, Sighinolfi managed to find a gear and accelerated away, with Rossi still holding onto the starter motor he'd managed to insert into the back of the Osella. Despite Sighinolfi coming to a stop shortly after, thanks to the marshal's signals, the acceleration of the car propelled Rossi forward onto the tarmac.

Whilst the incident was being cleared up, Arsenio Matarazzo in the second Osella pulled out of the pits and joined the race. He managed to race for 20 laps before the stewards caught wind of his appearance and was shown the black flag, however, Matarazzo decided to ignore the flag and managed to finish the race, albeit 6 laps down. To make a bad weekend worse for the Osella team, Matarazzo was promptly disqualified from the race and handed a one-race ban from FISA.
