life in the cockpit …

Jacky Ickx & Clay Regazzoni, Ferrari 312B2, 1971 Dutch Grand Prix

on-grid:

The Ferrari 312T4, which won six races and the 1979 constructors championship in the hands of Gilles Villeuve and Jody Schecketer, who won the drivers championship. Enzo Ferrari described it as the ugliest car he had ever built. 

Gotta agree with il Commendatore here, apart from the Lotus 79 most of the first round of wing-cars were god awful to look at.

Chris Amon & Mauro Forghieri with the Ferrari 312B, in 1969.

I remember reading a quote from Forghieri, saying that he had designed the fastest car on the grid and with Chris Amon it should have easily won the championship for the New Zealand driver - however, he also designed it horrendously unreliable. Chris Amon never won a race in his career, let alone a championship, and Forghieri heaped the blame on himself.
Forghieri would go on to redeem himself by designing the 312T that brought titles to Niki Lauda and Jodi Scheckter.
