I have just read the artcle linked by BRG and am lost for words.

 

Suggest others read.

Very interesting read. Also, just below that piece, a link to the obit column:

Apparently, once a F1 car designer, always a F1 car designer!  Peter Connew in the news today.

 

In my experience unless you are signed up to the DT website you cannot open any articles online, the text is removed altogether leaving just the opening image on a darkened background plus the blah at the bottom of the page about other bits of the paper.

Sounds like you've hit their monthly download limit. Clear any Telegraph cookies in your browser and then set it to clear Telegraph cookies on exit. This will enable you to bypass their paywall - unless you look at more than twenty pages in any one session.  ;)

Agreed Richard.  I try not to look at the Telegraph website too often, for health reasons, and have no problem when occasionally I do.  :)

Would this be because you are based abroad, Paul?

 

I don't know - I am just guessing.  I sometimes struggle to connect to some "UK-based" sites when I am in continental Europe.

I read here in Oz. Though that was when it was current a couple of days ago. The problem with many of these links they are only current for a day or two

I just found these pictures posted by "Jno10" on the Autodiva forum. I don't remember seeing them before. Even if they're not new, they're worth reposting anyway.

The middle one of the three pictures is unknown to both Peter and myself.

The top one,( I cannot see the first one so it is the middle one for some of you) is probably the finest shot of the workings of the car I have seen. To say credit where credit is due to the designer and builders seems grossly unworthy of what they achieved with so little in the  way of key resources - space, time, manpower and money. Truly one of the most  significant design and build achievements in F1. Usual disclaimers

I'm not signed up to the Daily Telegraph but I read it every day - Perhaps it's an out-of-the-UK thing.

Hot news! Capricorn to buy the Nurburgring. Will their return to the F1 world mean Connew is reborn?

 

Perhaps not as it is an unconnected engineering group not the seafood firm. But still Capricorn.

The person working at the rear end of the car...is it you?

Was this picture taken in France? The first picture is obviouslytaken at the Nuerburgring. The last one might be taken in Austria? Francois Migault is sitting in a proper seat here while the second picture are showing foam sheets instead.

The person visible at the back of the car is our Chief Mechanic Roger Doran.

 

The person on the right is something of a mystery but we think it is probably Francois Migault's friend Roger Schweitzer, the former race driver who drove our truck out to Austria.

IMHO all pics are taken in the old paddock of the ring (the first two at least) at different times at the very same spot. In the chronologigal order 2, 1 and 3. See the blocks and the white line to the right.
