Forty-three years after it first raced, the Tyrrell P34 remains one of the most iconic cars in Formula 1's history. That's an impressive achievement given that it scored just a single grand prix victory in Sweden during its two-year lifespan.
The six-wheeler was perhaps the definitive symbol of an era when every car looked different and, unlike today, the rules were not restrictive. Designers were free to use their imaginations and one person could still be responsible for creating an entire car.
If that person was lucky, they might have some access to a university-owned 25% windtunnel for a spot of basic research, but still much depended on that individual's intuition and instinct.
