Not only is Carlos Sainz (DAMS) the first Red Bull Junior Team driver to win the Formula Renault 3.5 Series title, he is also the youngest champion in the history of the category.

In spite of the impression his father left in the rally world, Carlos Sainz quickly made his way to circuit racing.
Look only to the shades, sideburns and swagger, and it becomes sometimes easy to appreciate the fact that Emerson Fittipaldi was a darn fine racing driver. His wasn’t the most immediate driving style to define: clever yet possessed of incredible bravery; precise yet capable of the bravest overtaking moves, Emmo nonetheless became a double world champion by virtue of his sheer completeness as a rac…
Forty years ago, Emerson Fittipaldi – the father of Brazilian motorsport – brought home McLaren’s first-ever world championship trophy.

Is it really 30 years since Niki Lauda, Alain Prost and the McLaren-TAG MP4/2 steamrollered all opposition to clean up both the 1984 drivers’ and constructors’ championships? A quick check of my calendar suggests that, indeed, October 21 1984 was the date when McLaren, under the auspices of Ron Dennis, truly came of age. To my mind, there’s something special, pivotal, about that ’84 season.
