How Tyrrell and Stewart forged parallel paths to F1 stardom – Autosport

As a keen and robust sportsman, 27-year-old Ken Tyrrell knew everything about cricket and football, but nothing about motor racing. His heroes were Stanley Matthews and Tom Finney (leading goalscorers for England), along with Len Hutton and Colin Cowdrey, prolific batsmen for the national team. Juan Manuel Fangio and Giuseppe ‘Nino’ Farina meant little, not because they were ‘foreign’ in the eyes of this intensely patriotic Englishman, but because they were champions of a sport in which Tyrrell felt he could not possibly participate, never mind understand.
When he joined his village football team on a trip to the 1951 British GP, the only connection was that Silverstone, as a former World War II aerodrome, bore similarities to those on which Flight Sergeant Robert Kenneth Tyrrell had served his country as an engineer with the Royal Air Force. 
Other than that, this would be a bit of a laugh; a fun day out.

The F1 podium-finisher that gave Jordan stability in a year of chaos
The Hart-powered Jordan 194 gave the team hope that the good times were just around the corner.

But, as STUART CODLING explains, it did provide a platform for Jordan to become a manufacturer-supported squad

The late-race safety car issues F1 still needs to fix to move on from Abu Dhabi
OPINION: Formula 1’s safety car rules were thankfully followed in full at the 2022 Italian Grand Prix, but the situation reignited the controversy of the ending to the 2021 campaign in Abu Dhabi and left neutral fans without a teased grandstand finish.
