Formula One technology developed at a furious pace in the 1970s and early 1980s, as F1 designers mastered the art of making airflow work to produce down force. The introduction of wings (or “aero foils”) was made mid-way during the 1968 season. Borrowed from Jim Hall’s revolutionary Can-Am Chaparral, wings allowed for the creation of “down force”, pinning cars to the track for greater traction and vastly increased cornering speed. Although the Cosworth engine was by now ubiquitous in F1, the Lotus 72 – with its distinctive “shovel” nose and nose wings – was significantly faster.
