Well that oughta grip pretty good.
He needs a suicide knob.
Should be mid 70s F-1 but can't quite pin it down who it is
Patrick Depailler...note the tricolor on the helmet.
Patrick Depailler, he's in a bit of trouble. Locked up the front you can see a flat spot on the left side/rearmost tire when he's on opposite lock.I remember those cars, I wonder if they could get the tires to proper temp? With modern down force it wouldn't be a problem.
The Tyrrell P34 was raced in F1 in 1976 and 1977. The drivers in 76 were Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler. For 77, Jody was replaced with Ronnie Peterson. The design was abandoned before the 78 season.
Is that his foot on and off the throttle to help with the steering? Art
The tire manufacturer didn't bother to continue development of those 10 inch tires, so handling got unbalanced as the rears got better in comparison. Other car makers were doing prototypes, but they were doing 4 at the rear, all driving, instead. Not enough tires to bother with just one buyer. It was surprisingly competitive during those two years. I'm thinking they might have gone to 8 wheels fairly quickly! However, it all got banned a couple years later.
