The day Senna and Toleman were robbed | Thank Frankel it's Friday

Ted Toleman died this week aged 86 and whenever I read that name one thought comes to me: the day his team was robbed of certain victory at the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, the alleged injustices of which still rile surviving team members to this day almost 40 years later.

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.
