| Written by

Over 50 Formula 1 cars have been confirmed for the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of their celebration of 60 years of the world championship.

Among the drivers taking the cars up Goodwood hill throughout the course of today, tomorrow and Sunday are Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Mark Webber, Nico Rosberg, Jarno Trulli, Heikki Kovalainen, Karun Chandhok, Bruno Senna, Marc Gene and Nick Heidfeld.

See below for a complete guide to the F1 cars and stars at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a massive celebration of motor racing which takes place at Goodwood House in Sussex every summer. A collection of great motor racing cars and bikes from the past and present are displayed and many of them are driven up the hillclimb course.

A small number do so against the clock, although the competitive element of the event has been toned down in recent years to allow spectators to stay close to the action.

Have a look at my top 40 pictures from the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2009 to see what was on show at last year’s Festival.

Here’s a guide to the F1 cars currently set to feature in this year’s Festival. Any late changes to the entry list will be posted here before the Festival opens.

Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 'Alfetta'

Tipo 159 ‘Alfetta’ (1951)
182 (1982)

Alfa Romeo’s centenary is being marked at the festival. An example of the car which won the first world championship in the hands of Giuseppe Farina – the 159 – will be demonstrated.

A car from Alfa’s less successful return to F1 will also appear. The 182 may have still used a V12 engine when more of their rivals were switching to turbo power, but Andrea de Cesaris managed to take the team’s final pole position with it at Long Beach in 1982.


Benetton-Ford B192 (1992)

B192 (1992)

The car which Michael Schumacher won his first Grand Prix with will be the most up-to-date F1 car to attempt a timed run up the hill.


BT20 (1966)
BT24 (1967)

A pair of Brabhams from the team’s heyday. These cars took Jack Brabham and Denny Hulme to the 1966 and 1967 world championships respectively.


Brawn-Mercedes BGP 001, 2009

BGP 001 (2009)

With Jenson Button having jumped ship to McLaren it falls to Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld to drive the car Button won the championship in last year.

Hopefully it will be in its original Brawn GP colours, unlike the example which was used for Mercedes’ livery launch earlier this year. The car is painted in the colours of this year’s Mercedes (top picture).


Type 25 (1957)
P578 (1962)

Graham Hill’s 1962 title-winning P578 is one of two BRMs being driven up the hill.


T53 ‘lowline’ (1960)

Another of Jack Brahmam’s title-winning cars, this is the Cooper he won his second world championship with in 1960.


Ferrari 312B3 'Spazzaneve' (pictured in 2008)

246 Dino (1959)
158 (1964)
312/68 (1968)
312/B2 (1971)
312/B3S (1972)
F60 (2009)

The headline-grabber here is surely John Surtees being reunited with his championship-winning car from 1964.

Another former Ferrari driver, Patrick Tambay, will drive a 246, the car Mike Hawthorn won the world championship with in 1958.

The appearance of the 312/B3 will delight lovers of F1’s obscure cars. This is the un-raced ‘Spazzaneve’ version of the 312 with its distinctive and, frankly, downright ugly ‘snowplough’ front nose.

Marc Gene will bring things up-to-date with Ferrari’s F60, which won a single race last year in the hands of Kimi R??ikk??nen.

EJ13 (2003)

The last Jordan to win a Grand Prix, Giancarlo Fisichella scoring his maiden victory in 2003 at Interlagos in the EJ13.


JS11 (1979)

Won the first two races of 1979 in the hands of Jacques Laffite.


Lotus-Cosworth 72, 1972

12 (1958)
18 (1960)
24 (1962)
33 (1964)
49 (1967)
56B (1971)
72E (1973)
79 (1978)
95T (1984)
101 (1989)
109 (1994)
T127 (2010)

A bumper crop of Lotuses including the first and last examples from the original team. They bookend some terrific cars – plus one fascinating oddity – and the new team’s current machine will also be present.

Lotus recorded their first win with the 18 at Monaco in 1960, the Climax-powered car being driven by Stirling Moss.

The 33 gave Jim Clark one championship in 1965 and he would have won it in 1964 as well had the car not broken down so often.

The 49, 72 (in its final, ‘E’, configuration) and 79 were cars which pushed the technological boundaries of F1 and enjoyed multiple Grand Prix and championship victories. Emerson Fittipaldi will be reunited with the 72E which he drove in 1973.

But the 56B, with its Pratt & Whitney turbine engine, was a great leap in the wrong direction. You can read more about that car here: Banned! Gas turbine engines.

After the death of Colin Chapman in 1982 the team fell into decline. Nigel Mansell should have won the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix with the Renault turbo-powered 95T.

The 101 and 109 show the old team in its death throes – particularly the 1989 car, which Nelson Piquet and Satoru Nakajima failed to qualify at Spa that year.

Maserati 250F

4CLT (1949)
250F (1957)
250F V12 (1957)

Another of the grand old names of the sport. The 250F is arguably the first great car of the world championship. Juan Manuel Fangio won a championship in one, and Stirling Moss made his name in a 250F.

Examples of them accounted for up to three-quarters of the grid at some races in the fifties.

Great F1 cars of the last six decades: Maserati 250F


MS80 (1969)

Jackie Stewart won his first world championship in this car, run by Ken Tyrrell. He’s not currently down to drive it, but don’t be surprised if he does.


Lewis Hamilton with the McLaren MP4-23 (2008) and MP4-2C (1986)

M7C (1969)
M23 (1973)
MP4-2C (1986)
MP4-4 (1988)
MP4-8 (1993)
MP4-23 (2008)

Last year Lewis Hamilton missed out on a chance to drive the 1988 MP4-4 – which his hero Ayrton Senna won his first world championship in – as the car’s gearbox broke while Bruno Senna was driving it on Saturday at Goodwood. Sadly it seems he won’t be driving it this year either as it is currently listed as a static display only.

Hamilton and team mate Jenson Button will get to drive another championship-winning turbo-powered McLaren – the MP4-2C which took Alain Prost to his second title in 1986.

The pair will also drive Hamilton’s championship-winning car from 2008.

Bruno Senna, meanwhile, will drive the car his uncle won his final races with in 1993 – including that remarkable triumph in the Donington drizzle.

GP2 front runner Sam Bird will sample an M23, model which started 80 races in the 1970s, delivering championship titles for Emerson Fittipaldi and James Hunt.

Mercedes W196, 1954

W196 (1954)

Juan Manuel Fangio won the championship in 1954 and 1955 driving a W196. Mika Hakkinen, who also won two world championships with Mercedes power, will drive this car, as will Goodwood hillclimb record-holder Nick Heidfeld.


804 (1962)

The only Porsche to win a round of the world championship will be present. Dan Gurney won the 1962 French Grand Prix with this car.

Red Bull

Red Bull-Renault RB5 (2009)

RB1 (2005)
RB5 (2009)

Mark Webber shares driving duties in the Red Bull demo car with Jean-Eric Vergne, Red Bull’s latest development driver who is presently leading the British Formula Three Championship.

Star designer Adrian Newey will sample one of his most recent creations, driving the RB5 which won six races last year.


Toleman-Hart TG183B

TG183B (1983)

The car Ayrton Senna made his F1 debut in will be on the hill – see here for some early pictures of this unmistakeably eighties creation.


Tyrrell-Cosworth 006, 1973

006 (1973)
P34 (1976)

The sublime and the ridiculous from Tyrrell: Jackie Stewart won his final world championship in a 006 in 1973. Three years later the team produced (and won one race with) the bizarre six-wheeled P34.

Read more: Banned! Six-wheelers


Vanwall (1958)

The first winners of the constructors’ championship in 1958, though the team wound up after the death of driver Stuart Lewis-Evans in the final race at Morocco that year.


Williams-Cosworth FW08, 1982

FW05 (1976)
FW08 (1982)
FW11B (1987)
FW15C (1993)
FW18 (1996)
FW32 (2010)

Karun Chandhok will drive a Cosworth-powered car that’s quite different to the one he’s used to. The 1982 Williams FW08 was the last normally-aspirated car to win the world championship before the turbo brigade took over.

An array of other championship-winning cars from Williams will be on display including the 1987 Honda-powered FW11B, the ultra-high-tech FW15C of 1993 and another dominant Renault-powered Williams, the 1996 FW18.

Sam Bird will drive this year’s car on the hill.

Other cars of interest

Lotus-Cosworth 38, 1965

There’s far more than just F1 cars and drivers to keep visitors entertained. Here’s a selection of some other Goodwood Festival highlights with an F1 flavour.

Lotus 38

Jackie Stewart will drive the Lotus which Jim Clark used to win the 1965 Indianapolis 500.

McLaren MP4/12C

McLaren will demonstrate their first road car since the F1 in public for the first time. Ferrari and Lotus will also have cars from their road range on show, as will Mercedes who will run the SLS AMG which serves as F1’s safety car.

Porsche 911 GT3 Hybrid

The Porsche featuring a hybrid power train supplier by Williams Hybrid Power was driven around the Nurburgring Nordschleife by Nico Hulkenberg earlier this year.

Jaguar XJR14

The sports prototype designed by Ross Brawn in 1991 to beat the Mercedes driven by, among others, Michael Schumacher. A gorgeous creation, find pictures of it here.

Mercedes 300 SLR ‘Uhlenhaut Coupe’

Mika Hakkinen, Jackie Stewart and Jochen Mass will be among the drivers to sample this rare, road legal version of the 300 SLR. It was produced for Mercedes designer Rudolf Uhlenhaut, who created, among others, the W196.

Stirling Moss, Damon Hill, Christian Horner and Murray Walker are among those expected to attend.

    Great article. Wish I could be there!

    1. Please please please get us some photos of the Brabham cars Keith.

      He is my hero.

  2. “Star designer Adrian Newey will sample one of his most recent creations, driving the RB6 which won six races last year.”

    Should be RB5, no?

    1. Yes, it is the RB5 he’s driving. Changed accordingly.

      1. Well i think it is still the RB6 in the article Keith.

  3. I would love to be at Goodwood next weekend but it clashes with my wedding anniversary and other family events.

    For some reason it also clashes with the HSCC Superprix at Brands Hatch, as it did last year. Quite why the HSCC thinks it makes good sense to run a high profile meeting including historic F1 and sportcar races in direct competition with the Festival is entirely beyond me. It isn’t even as if the two venues are any distance from one another – both in South East England, within 90 minutes drive of one another. Not that I could go to the Superprix either, of course.

    I thoroughly recommend the Superprix if anyone is minded to go – a more limited selection of old F1 cars than at Goodwood, but you get to see (and hear) them race one another. Formula 2 and F5000 are pretty spectacular as well. Seeing the old Can-Am cars last year was incredible.

    In some ways I’m glad I’m booked up for that weekend – otherwise, how to choose between them.

    1. That is odd. Maybe they fixed their date before Goodwood? But Goodwood usually set theirs fairly early. Strange.

  4. I would love seeing all those great cars and maybe meet some of those legends visiting. I am sure the MP4-23 was the one Jenson and Lewis put together, so watch out which one of them will drive it first :-D

    Maybe i will be able to get there next year though.

  5. As if I wasn’t excited enough…

    I’m terrified I’ll miss something, must make sure to see everything many times!

  6. I am feeling jealous about this, can’t make a trip from Bangladesh all the way to Goodwood.

      Nor can I from India.

      1. But we may end up together in the 2011 Indian GP.

          Yup, that’s a great prospect. Hope I’m really able to make it. It’ll be my first experience of any motor race, let alone F1! Can’t experience much motor racing from the beautiful green state of Kerala.

          1. You do live in a beautiful city. Hope that both of us can make it there in time. It too will be my first experience of any sort of motor racing as well.

  7. Fantastic line up this year. I’m not envious of anyone who is going, oh no… (swines!)

  8. Have got my weekend ticket (was nervous as anything before they came through the mail) for what will be my 1st time going, but i simpley cannot wait for next weekend.

    1. Me too, waited months without any word from them, got worried and phoned them up a couple of weeks ago and as I was talking to them they popped through the door!

      1. Make sure to take comfortable shoes, I got a killer blister last year. Hope the weather is good for you guys, you’ll have a brilliant time.

        1. Thanks for the advise, Im there for all 3 days (staying with a friend in Southampton for shorter drive) so im going to spread it out and take it all in.

  9. Looking forward to FOS, nice 5am start on Friday morning to make sure we’re not sitting in jams all morning. The Carpark is normally a car show in its own right :)

  10. Must go one of these years…moving to Bath soon so a little bit closer and it becomes a reasonable distance to drive…

  11. That 1992 Benneton was the first ever scalextric car I owned. Man, I love that car.

  12. I’m going for my usual 2 days, and it looks like it will be lots of fun!
    Mercedes always supply the F1 Safety Car as part of the entourage going up and down the hill. One year they brought the complete transporter full of Safety Cars and Doctors Cars, fresh from the previous GP.
    Also to note are the Course Director’s Rolls-Royce Coupe and the various transporters and support vehicles around the Paddocks!

    1. I remember when I went 11 years ago the Audi’s and Porsche’s were fresh back from Le Mans and hadn’t even been washed!

  13. Wouldn’t surprise me if the car was painted in the Mercedes colours instead of the Brawn. Last year they repainted the STR as an RBR.

    Would be a shame if they did.

    1. I really think it’s a shame they didn’t leave it in last year’s livery…

      …maybe next year Jenson will lend them his ;-)

    2. I think its pretty poor form for Merc to try and pass off a car that had nothing (OK – Engine excluded) with them as their own. I was in KL when Schumacher did a demo with this same car outside the Petronas towers. I wasn’t happy with the idea then, but it was understandable.

      I guess its their car now (or is it Jenson’s!?) so they can do with it what they want, but I for one would like to see some originality.

  14. Tyrrel P34, one of my all time favourite F1 cars. Weird, I know, but a matter of genius.

  15. I’m going with my son, partner and her father for the Saturday. Really looking forward to it.

    Excellent article!

  16. “With Jenson Button having jumped ship to McLaren it falls to Nico Rosberg and Nick Heidfeld to drive the car Button won the championship in last year.”
    The car that Jenson believes is contractually his, after winning the title.
    As Jenson will be there for McLaren, I wonder if he’ll pop over to Mercedes to see if he can grab it? :o)

    1. Or just keep an eye on things, to make sure neither of them bend it haha!

      1. Maybe after they “accidentally” crash it, they will drop it off next to him and wish him luck with his car :-p

  17. What a great line up! Just a shame that Goodwood has now joined nearly all motorsport events as being too expensive. At 50 quid a ticket its now out of reach of many true motorsport lovers like myself to attend with my wife. Im sure everyone that can afford a brand new car and watch the odd GP will enjoy the specticle but im afraid i will not be going any more…

      The age old problem of motorsport – it’s too expensive, and so out of reach.

    2. Wht don’t you pen aletter to Lord March an tell of your concerns about ticket pricing!

  18. I’ve purchased tickets for myself and my dad. It’s the first time in my life that I’ve found a birthday present for him that actually seemed to provide any real excitement. What I’m trying to say is that without this article, I never would have thought of this event, so thanks.

    I may stick the F1Fanatic logo on a badge with my name: Steve underneath (as long as no one has any objections). Feel free to come up and say hi if you see me.

  19. While not mentioned on your lists, suggest something on the short-lived Argentine Berta Sports Prototype, a particularly competitive entry from a third world country in the 3 litre class back then and, IMHO, one of the prettiest in the field.

  20. I never get tired of looking at the Lotus 72, Beautiful. But the collection of photo’s also clearly shows how high the modern rear wings are, way up there in the clean air. Not surprising they make such turbulence for following cars…. perhaps it might improve overtaking if they reduced the max height of the rear wing back to that of the 70’s

    1. The reason they are up that high is so that all of the wake is kept up high. In theory it allows cars to follow more easily.

      1. The theory isn’t corresponding with practice very much then….

  21. surely top gears modified mini deserves an honourable mention?

  22. My last trip to Europe was timed for Monaco and running with the bulls in Pamplona – I’ll be timing the next one for Goodwood :)
