    McLaren MP4/4 - Honda

    McLaren MP4/4 - Honda

    In the hands of Prost and Senna, this car took 15 of 16 wins as they utterly dominated the Championship. Only an accident in Italy prevented McLaren from achieving a clean-sweep of the Championship.

    Ferrari F2002/F2004

    Ferrari F2002/F2004

    • Year Launched: 2002/2004
    2 cars rooted in the same design. The F2002 had low centre of gravity, excellent handling, fuel economy and it shredded the opposition. The F2004 was a modified version and was even better. 15 wins from 19 races in 2002. 15 wins from 18 races in 2004.

    Lotus 79

    Lotus 79

    • Year Launched: 1978
    The car that perfected "ground effect", the Lotus 79 was so far ahead of the pack that its drivers were literally out of sight after a few laps. The car cornered as if on rails and could easily zip past its slower opposition on the outside of tight bends. As long as it was reliable, it was untouchable.

    Williams FW14B

    Williams FW14B

    • Year Launched: 1992
    Powered by Renault and designed by Adrian Newey, this car dominated the 1992 F1 World Championship. Nigel Mansell took a record 5 straight wins in the opening 5 races and the opposition rarely got a look in. Mansell won an easy World Championship and teammate Ricardo Patrese cleaned up what was left.

    Lotus 72

    Lotus 72

    • Year Launched: 1970
    The Lotus 72 was one of the most innovative designs in F1 history. The innovative "wedge on wheels" design meant a streamlined and aerodynamically efficient car that handled well and which was 12mph faster than its predecessor. Released in 1970, the exact same car was still winning F1 races in 1974!

    Tyrrell P34

    Tyrrell P34

    • Year Launched: 1976
    Gasps from the press greeted the unveiling of the Tyrrell P34. It proved to be very competitive at the outset and won the seventh race it was entered into. But this competitiveness fell away and it quickly became remembered for being "that 6-wheel car"

    Lotus 49

    • Year Launched: 1967

    • Year Launched: 1937

    Jordan 191

    Jordan 191

    • Year Launched: 1991
    Jordan burst onto the F1 scene in 1991 in a car that is still regarded by many as one of the most aesthetically pleasing of all-time. Sleek and curvy, the 191 was also highly competitive. It was also the first F1 car to be driven by Michael Schumacher.

    McLaren-TAG MP4/2

    McLaren-TAG MP4/2

    • Year Launched: 1984
    1982 and 1983 had seen wildly unpredictable World Championships being played out. Turbos were in and "Ground Effect" was out. Reliability was generally very poor and team's struggled for consistency; 12 different drivers won the 16 races in 1982 and 8 different drivers won in 1983. And then, in 1984, this car won 12 out of 16 races as Niki Lauda and Alain Prost secured a World Championship 1-2, a record.

    Cooper-Climax T51

    Cooper-Climax T51

    • Year Launched: 1959
    The Daddy of the modern F1 car. The first car with a rear-mounted engine, it was an instant success and everybody else quickly followed suit.

    1952 Ferrari 500

    1952 Ferrari 500

    • Year Launched: 1950
    We could write an essay on this car. Put simply, this car is the reason we all know what a Ferrari is.

    Mercedes-Benz W196

    Mercedes-Benz W196

    • Year Launched: 1954
    Mercedes-Benz jumped into Formula 1 in 1954 and quit again after the 1955 season. But in those two seasons, they won 2 World Championships as this car took 9 wins from 12 races.

    Renault RS01

    Renault RS01

    • Year Launched: 1977
    Derided by the competition and dubbed "The Yellow Teapot", the Renault RS01 was the first turbo car in Formula 1 history. Initially it wasn't very reliable or competitive, but that soon changed when Jean-Pierre Jabouille won Renault's first race at the 1979 French Grand Prix. By 1983, turbos were the standard F1 engine.

    Maserati 250F

    Maserati 250F

    • Year Launched: 1954
    The car that propelled Juan Manuel Fangio to 2 World Championships, the 250F was also the car that drove Fangio to victory in the 1957 German Grand Prix, which is often cited as one of F1's greatest races.

    Matra MS80

    Matra MS80

    • Year Launched: 1969
    A beautiful example of a modern motor car, the Matra MS80 would be instantly recognisable from the toy collections of little boys in the 1970s! Jackie Stewart was utterly dominant in the 1969 season as this car provided him with the first of his 3 World Championships

    Tyrrell 019

    Tyrrell 019

    • Year Launched: 1990
    Innovation was nothing new to Tyrrell and Harvey Postlethwaite's up-swept front wing proved to be a revelation. The car was instantly competitive and it wasn't long before the rest of the Formula 1 world imitated the design.
