HISTORY

The Lotus – Ford Cosworth 79 is a car of the Formula 1 World Championship in 1978. Colin Chapman after the last victory in 1972 with the Lotus 72D, entrusted to Martin Ogilvie and Peter Wright a project that revolutionized the Formula 1 of that year. The car through the ducts under the sides generated an increase in downforce using the Venturi. Mario Andretti with the Lotus – Ford Cosworth 79 n.5 won the Formula 1 World Championship in 1978

For the American driver was the first and only world title. The season was characterized by the dominance of the English team that exploited its ground effect, the American driver during the season won six Grand Prix: Argentina, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany and Holland. Although Lotus also won the constructors’ title, the celebrations of the two world titles were destabilized by the death Ronnie Peterson, the Swedish rider lost his life at the start of the Italian Grand Prix in a carambola involving other cars.
