    The basic chassis was almost identical to the previous car but the smaller and narrower V6 turbo engine suited the ground effect aerodynamics now needed to be competitive, and was a better package overall. The development of the T began in , as it became apparent that problems with the handling of the then current B3 chassis could not be solved, and a radical re-think was required. Then I saw the red Ferrari flying over me. Alboreto also scored the team's only pole position of the season at Zolder.

    In various versions, it was used from until It was designed by Mauro Forghieri for the season and was an uncomplicated and clean design that responded to mechanical upgrades. The T series won 27 races, four Constructors' and three Drivers' Championships, and was replaced for the season by the C , Ferrari's first turbocharged F1 car.

    The T in the name stood for trasversale [1] or ' transverse ' five speed gearbox ahead of the rear-axle line, improving the car's handling characteristics, which had been the downfall of its predecessor. The development of the T began in , as it became apparent that problems with the handling of the then current B3 chassis could not be solved, and a radical re-think was required. The car was constructed with aluminium panels over a tubular steel spaceframe, as was typical in F1 at the time, [3] but featured a large number of new design features, the most interesting of which was the transverse-mounted gearbox — the T in the car's name stood for Trasversale.

    The gearbox design allowed it to be positioned ahead of the rear axle, in order to give a low polar moment of inertia. The suspension was also significantly different from that of the B3, and the front of the chassis was much narrower.

    The handling of the car was found to be inherently neutral, not suffering from the persistent understeer which blighted the B3. Niki Lauda tested the car extensively during the off season, ready for a full-on championship challenge. The first T was completed in the autumn of , and unveiled to the press in Modena after the end of the season. However, the team used the old B3 at the first two races of the season, and it was not until the South African Grand Prix the T received its race debut.

    The car's performance at its debut race was disappointing, with Clay Regazzoni 's car being set up incorrectly, and Niki Lauda 's suffering from a lack of power. A subsequent test of Lauda's engine proved that there was a technical problem. The T was tested alongside the B3 at Fiorano , proving conclusively that the newer car was faster, and indeed it went on to win its next race, the non-championship International Trophy race , with Lauda at the wheel. In the world championship, after the slow start to the season in which Brabham , Tyrrell and McLaren put up strong competition, Lauda won 4 out of 5 races mid season before snatching the title at Monza by finishing third, whilst Clay Regazzoni 's win in that race secured Ferrari its first Constructors' Championship since The Formula 1 technical regulations were changed for the season — from the Spanish Grand Prix in May, the tall air boxes which had become popular would be banned.

    The rules therefore allowed Ferrari to continue to use the T for the opening 3 races of the season Lauda won the first two and Regazzoni the third , before the introduction of its successor, a revised version called the T2. Five T chassis were used in races chassis numbers: The T2 was launched at Fiorano and featured a number of modifications over the T.

    Instead "NACA shaped" air intakes were incorporated into the cockpit sides, feeding air into each cylinder bank of the flat 12 engine. At mm, the wheelbase was 42mm longer than that of the T.

    The T2 was given its race debut at the non-championship Brands Hatch Race of Champions in March and was first used in a world championship race in May at the Spanish Grand Prix. The T2 was, if anything, more successful than the T. In the aftermath he nearly burned to death, but was miraculously back to racing just 6 weeks later.

    Lauda conceded the title by just a single point to James Hunt , but the T2's superiority helped Ferrari win its second consecutive constructors' title. The T2 was uprated to B-spec for the season. At the early races the cars were little different from the specification cars, indeed two of the cars chassis and were used in the early races.
