[ Ferrari 312T4 DATA ]
In 1978, to compete with the Lotus 79 with the advantage of the aerodynamics, the chief engineer of Ferrari thought that the team urged to have a new formula car with ground effect design.
However, in the year of 1979, the ground effect with Ferrari were not getting very well with the flat12 engine. At that time, Mauro Forghieri introduced the 312T4, with flat12 engine installed, as the first ground effect design from Ferrari.
The 312T4 debuted at the South African GP, Gilles Villeneuve won the GP and Jody Scheckter followed him with a 2nd position finish. This is the first time that a debuting car achieved 1-2 finish since Fangio/kling and drove the Mercedes W196 at 1954. The two drivers won 3 champions each with 312T4, in total 6 champions, the Ferrari Team won the constructor championship, and Jody Scheckter won the Driver Championship.
After 21 years, in the year 2000, the Ferrari Team won both constructor and driver championships again with Michael Schumacher, therefore the 312T4 1979 is one of the most important thing in the Ferrari history.
