Barrie Gill covers the world of motor racing
The Grand Prix in Mexico City last Sunday brought the 1969 Formula 1 season to an end with Jackie Stewart as the new world champion. Having won the top title in only his fifth full season, where does Stewart go from here? Will his French Matra, with its Ford-Cosworth V8 engine, remain a winning partnership? Do four-wheel drive and aerofoils have a place in the future of Formula 1 in the seventies?
All the action from Sunday's big race, with expert comment from the pits on the Grand Prix season ahead.

The series in which sports personalities talk about themselves and express their opinions against a backcloth of action looks at a less glamorous side of the professional golf circuit.
Caddies have been referred to as 'layabouts', 'vagrants', 'bums', and 'the travelling brewery'. But the top caddies feel that the professional golf stars could not get along without them and the advice and comfort they give when the pressure is on. Some golfers agree with them; others regard them as outdoor valets who should be seen, preferably in a smart boiler suit, but definitely not heard.
"The caddie and the golfer become a team .. my caddie knows me better than any other man on the face of the earth." (Billy Casper)
