What do you remember about the 1974 F1 season? If the answer is ‘not much’, you could be forgiven. It’s possible you weren’t even born or, if you were, old enough to find not much interest in cars driving around in circles.
When F1 championship‑hopefuls were last tied on points | Thank Frankel it’s Friday
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.
