John Wickham, the owner of the Spirit team that raced in F1 in the mid-eighties, has died aged 73 after a long illness.

 

Spirit joined the grid for the 1983 season with Honda B7LE engines – at the time the Japanese manufacturer’s first F1 engines since they left the sport in the late-sixties. The team started a total of 26 grands prix between 1983 and 1985 – fielding drivers such as Stefan Johansson – but did not score any points.
