Over 500 F1 cars in one picture

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:

    wow… that brings back memories… I used to draw cars in profile like that when i was a young boy… I remember drawing Emerson_Fittipaldi’s McLaren M23 when I was in 8th grade. I found some of those drawing a few years ago i an old trunk.

    Now if I could just find the book covers I made by cutting out pictures from road and tracks of that era….

    tough to pick out a favorite, so i’ll just ramble:

    i love the 50′s and 60′s cars. they really were proper race cars.

    1954 merc – those blasphemous fenders! what next, a roof?!

    1964 ferrari 1512 – a non-red ferrari? was it a privateer entry?

    1968 – the first wings and prominent sponsorship. this is where it all went wrong.

  5. Hi there mates, thanks for the plug and glad to see this monster being sent around – I think every one of us needs to blow this up in high res, frame it and hang it on our walls.

    Im looking into exactly that, right now.

    Try and stop by Racing Otaku from time to time – I tend to post all sorts of things motorsport related but love F1 more than all others.

    Cheers,

    R/O

    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.

    The ’73 Lotus 72 for me..mmmmmmmm perfect

    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.

    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.

    The Williams FW18 does it for me :)

    Noticed that the 1996 Forti 02 is incorrect

    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.

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

    http://www.fijen.net/f1/teams/index.html

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