March 711

Introduction

My fancy couldn't help being caught by a single-seater like March 711: my mind was shocked; I couldn't look away from that strange elliptic wing rising over the low and round nose, only supported by a slim small pillar. But what was there: a surf board? May be it was Montecarlo glamour, where for the first time I went near the car, but on it I would have seen well a pin-up girl being intent on dancing electronic rhythms. The English are much more self-controlled and cold in their irony; therefore they gave the strange creature nicknames such as: "coffee table" and "tea tray", which sounded as a harsh criticism. Nevertheless, ... Vai all'articolo

Introduction

"Inspiration is the impact of an event on an open mind". Thus Louis Pasteur provided the needed condition for new important scientific discoveries and for the progress deriving from it. Of course, the world that was moving round Formula one in the 70's was not so noble as the scientific one, but it was permeated by the same philosophy of a continuous search for a change. It's not by chance that it was one of the most creative period in the history of this sport, also in virtue of regulations that were not so strictly restrictive and detailed as the present-day ones. Making a comparison between periods we discover that today's ... Vai all'articolo

Introduction

Aerodynamic effect is mainly used to improve mechanic grip between tyre and asphalt with favourable effects for acceleration and the miles covered speed when cornering. In the second half of the 60's the concept spreading among Formula One designers, changed the terms of the aerodynamic research works carried out till that time: firstly they researched penetration above all, often grappling with aerodynamic lift phenomenon that lifted the single-seater at high speed. Then, they passed to the opposite concept, searching a drag able to force the single-seater downward and it's for that reason that still today Formula One has a coefficient ... Vai all'articolo

The time for important decisions

Eleven years were needed to return to win a World Championship in Formula One. Eleven years of ups and downs, sudden hopes and great disappointments, always unable to take a breath of press and fans who were calling for a return to the great success of the 50s and the first half of the 60s. Then there was Ferrari's humiliation of seeing the English "assemblers" as he used to call them contemptuously, thrash its drivers and cars regularly. The bottom was probably touched in 1973. Technical direction was in Sandro Colombo's hands who, in order to pass to a very modern chassis conception, gave up to the customary ... Vai all'articolo
