David Brabham Blog: Winning Is In My Mind

I remember when I was a young boy, perhaps 12-14 years of age, sitting on a chair watching the cricket at my parent’s farm in Australia watching Australia v West Indies, my two favourite teams at the time. I was a big fan of cricket back then and I was absorbed in the game because I used to play it a lot, so I was feeling happy in one way, but not in another. Why the other? I had something hanging over me that was unsettling me and I remember it like it was yesterday.

David Brabham Blog: What’s The Trouble With F1?

When I arrived in the UK from Australia to start my professional motorsports career in 1988/9, there seemed to be a fairly healthy appetite from corporates to sponsor motorsport. I was in a team sponsored by Camel cigarettes racing in Vauxhall Lotus, which was a free drive in Europe. Then, in F3 the following year, I was driving for Bowman Racing which was sponsored by Jewson and so also a free drive, racing against teams sponsored by Marlboro, Cellnet, Uniden and we had live primetime TV on the BBC. After F3 I went straight to F1 with Brabham and I was paid to drive. There were sponsors throughout F3, F3000, Sportscars and F1.
