Ferrari 312 T3 (1978)

Ferrari 312 T3

Ferrari's winning streak came to an end in 1978, a season in which Lotus dominated the Championships. Former Ferrari driver Mario Andretti won the world title, but Giles Villeneuve became a familiar face at the front of the pack and showed just how talented he was with a win in Canada. His acrobatic driving style sometimes landed him off the track, but in 1978 he clearly demonstrated to all his speed and determination. Unfortunately, the Championship was hit by tragedy when Ronnie Peterson was killed in an accident at the start of the racing at Monza.

The 312 T3 continued the evolution of the T series with an engine with 12 horizontally opposed cylinders, which were continually updated and pumped up. At Ferrari the question of when to abandon the normally aspirated engine in favour of the turbo, as required by the rules, was also posed, but the changeover was put off. All efforts instead were poured into continuing the development of the car with the Michelin tyres plus new aerodynamics in the form of a very wide body that extended right to the mid-line of the rear wheels, and new cooling and fuel ducts. The 312 T3 was only used from the South African GP onwards i.e. the third race in the 1978 World Championships as the first two (the Argentinean and Brazilian GPs) were raced using a modified version of the 1977 312 T2.
