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.
