1970-1976 Lotus 72
there was a time, when regulations didn’t change every year. So F1 teams keep developing the same car for years…

The revolutionary wedge shape of the Lotus 72 gave it massive longevity and won Chapman and co. two drivers titles at the hands of the late Jochen Rindt and a pair of Brazilian sideburns nicknamed “Emmo”, as well as three constructors titles.
Other famous names to have driven the Lotus 72 include Super Swede Ronnie Peterson, British driver John Watson and Belgian Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx.
