HISTORY

The Tyrrell – Ford Cosworth 010 n.4 is a car that participated in the Formula 1 World Championship in 1980. The British team entrusted Maurice Philippe with the design of the new car. The 010 had an aluminum monocoque and was equipped with the traditional Ford Cosworth engine and the Hewland gearbox.

Derek Daly with the Tyrrell – Ford Cosworth 010 n.4 arrived twelfth in the 1980 Formula 1 World Championship, achieving fourth place as best result. Together with team-mate Jarier, Daly did not perform well. The best results of the team were the two fourth places obtained by the Irish driver in the races in Argentina and Great Britain. In the last two races of the season a third car was deployed for the young driver Mike Thackwell.

Daly was the protagonist during the departure of the Monaco Grand Prix of a dangerous carom, without physical consequences for the drivers.
