Giorgio Piola’s take on the six-wheeled Tyrrell

 

Tyrrell shocked the Formula 1 world when it launched its six-wheeled P34 in the 1976 season and managed to take victory in that year's Swedish Grand Prix.

 

Giorgio Piola, who counts the Ford Cosworth-powered P34 as one of his all-time favorite F1 cars, was granted a high level of access to the car during its active life to create detailed drawings of the car.

Piola explains what it was like working with the help of Tyrrell designer Derek Gardner and why he believes Tyrrell's approach influenced Williams's own take on a six-wheeled F1 car in 1982.
