About the Ferrari 312T2 ’77
The 312T was designed to replace the 312B – Ferrari’s representative F1 car between the years of 1970 till 1975. The 312T kept the same flat 12 cylinder engine as the 312B, but featured a transverse gearbox and aluminum monocoque. While it took the championship title in 1975, modifications to the car was required in the following season due to regulation changes. In order to comply with new regulations and improve aerodynamics of the car, the induction pods were scrapped in favour of large NACA ducts at the front, giving birth to the 312T2. While driver N. Lauda suffered a near fatal accident in the German GP and retired from the Japanese GP on his own accord, the car ended up winning the constructor’s title in 1976. Lauda himself, however, ended up giving away the drivers championship to J.Hunt for that season.
In 1977, alterations and improvements were made to the 312T2, giving form to a newer build of the 312T2 compared to the 1976 season. The side cowls were modified extensively during the season, and N.Lauda managed three victories to claim both drivers and constructors championship for the 312T2 ’77. N.Lauda quit the team once both titles were secured, and was replaced by G.Villeneuve for the last two races of the season.
