Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

I came across an excellent picture on another blog which shows every Formula 1 car from 1950 to 2004 side-by-side. Here’s a sample of it:

  1. The ’66 Lotus 43, always has and always will be my favorite.

    The ’97-’01 Jordan’s had character. Also like the ’71 Lotus 56B and the ’68 McLaren M7.

    Although the 1968 Honda 302 likes fantastic. I just love the way the exhaust ‘pipes’ sweep around the rear of the car.

    having said all that, Jordan’s ’91 191 was a lovely car, the image on this wall chart doesnt do it any justice.

  5. So many to choose from, I am biased towards the cars from when I started following F1 in 1991 and the drivers and teams I supported. So I would have to say the Williams FW14B, Williams FW18, McLaren MP4-20 and this years McLaren MP4-24 even though it is slow. I also liked the Williams FW26 ‘walrus nose’ although a lot of people seemed to think it was ugly.

  6. The Williams FW18 does it for me :)

    Noticed that the 1996 Forti 02 is incorrect

  7. Hello Keith,

    I found this Mega Poster of all Formula 1 cars from 1st season in 1950 till 2007 season. Same like your poster but your poster is only till 2004 but this one is till 2007.

    Preview of the picture- http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk96/Nin_13/Formula%201/MiniPosterOfAllCarsFrom1950-2007.jpg

    You can download it from- http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5D9EOQAO
    Note file is 8MB big. First unzip the file(.RAR) and view the image(.JPG)

  8. I feel a poster for my office wall coming on…!

  9. Seem to be some missing.
    Anyway it’s nice to have a look. Browsing down the 1971 Lotus 56B caught me eye.
    Looks better in it’s original colours that was made for the 1968 Indy 500.
    Gas Turbine power F1 car. Shame it couldn’t be developed a bit more.

  10. This website seems to have the same pictures but sorted into teams


    makes it easier to see how each team has evolved over the seasons.

  11. The 1986 Williams is nice, and I’m not sure why but I quite like the 1995 Sauber,

    Looking at the older cars really makes this years lot look like dogs. :(

  12. For me, when Colin Champman agreeded to paint his cars with the Joh Player Special colours, he created a masterpiece!!

    Lotus 78, Lotus 77, Lotus 72 all so beautiful
    Ferrari 312T and Tyrrell P34 are one of my all time favourites

    Those 70’s cars were so pretty!

  13. This is just brilliant … the most beautiful picture ever !!! this ones going on the wall for sure

  14. Excellent picture

  15. I remember getting a similar poster from Autosport showing the cars that took Goodyear’s first 500 wins. Because every win was represented you could see which teams had winning streaks.

  16. Just discovered this site. It is awesome. My favourite is the Ferrari F2000, the MP4-15 is a close second.

  17. This site


    is down.
    Can anyone tell me how to find the pictures that were in it?
    Is there another similar site?

  18. can someone re-post the link for this image? It will no longer download the full picture.

    Most of it came in a french publication; an encyclopedia of Motor Racing …
