[ 312T3について - About the 312T3 - ]

そして迎えた1978年シーズン、さらなる改良を施されたマシンとしてグランプリを戦ったマシンが312T3です。312T3は1970年から継続して水平対向12気筒エンジンを搭載していましたが、312T2からモノコック構造、サスペンション、空力面での改良が施されたマシンでした。さらに大きな変化として、これまでのグッドイヤーからミシュラン製ラジアルタイヤに変更したことが挙げられます。T2より戦闘力を増したT3でしたが、グラウンド・エフェクトカーであるLOTUS 79がその強さを発揮、コンストラクターズタイトルはLOTUSに及ばず2位となりました。それでも、C.ロイテマンが312T3で3勝を挙げ、G.ヴィルヌーヴが最終戦母国カナダGPで自身初優勝を挙げる活躍を見せました。

The 312T was developed to replace the 312B, which represented the Ferrari team between 1970 till 1975. While it continued to used the same flat 12 engine found in the 312B, it also featured upgrades such as a transverse mounted gearbox and an aluminum monocoque. The 312T took the championship for 1975, and it was further upgraded into the 312T2 (in which changes were made to comply with new aerodynamic rules at the time), which managed to take the championship for 1976 and 1977 also.
In 1978, the car was further developed into the 312T3. While it continued to use the flat 12 engine from 1970, changes were made to the monocoque, suspensions and aerodynamic surfaces compared to the 312T2. This and other adjustments were made so the car would work with Michelin's radial tires as they had replaced the Goodyear tires used up to this point. While the T3 had better specs than the T2, it was no match for the “ground effect” car – the Lotus 79. While it was only able to take 2nd place in constructors after Lotus, C.Reutemann managed to take 3 wins with the car and G.Villeneuve managed to take his maiden victory at home in the final Canadian GP.
