Thank Frankel it's Friday: Jean Behra – the definition of mercurial

If there is such a thing as a crib sheet in this business, it is called the Grand Prix Data book, which has been published in four editions by David Hayhoe, most recently in 2006. In there is every result of every World Championship Formula 1 race from inception in 1950 to the end of the 2005 season. Every driver, every result, every qualifying position, every car number, every retirement, every reason for every retirement.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
