Ford Driver and Manufacturer Winners in F1

Post by reeft1 » Sun Dec 18, 2011 4:27 pm

I thought I'd post a link to photo's of my collection of Ford F1 Winners - both drivers and manufacturer titles. Just 2 models to get, to complete the collection!!

The KMart/Havoline Lola is actually a CART car from Nigel's 1993 season.

What 2 are you missing? 1967 Dutch Jim Clark Lotus?

Hi - yes, The Lola Mansell car and the Nannini Benetton are just in there and sat to one side as I used to be a big Mansell fan and always loved the livery of the Benetton.

As the collection aims to show where Ford won the Manufacturers or Drivers Championships, bizarrely Jim Clark doesnt find a place in the collection as of course Denny Hulme and Brabham won that year.

So the 2 that I'm missing are 1) the 1969 Stewart MS10 from the South African Grand Prix - Tenariv made that model many years ago but they go for silly money and 2) The Reutemann Williams FW07C from 1981 - Minichamps have been threatening to bring that one out for a number of years - I live in hope!!

OK, I am a little lacking on my F1 knowledge, but that is surely not every ford powered winner but two is it? Wonderful collection you have!

Much better having the pictures in the thread itself :) I would really struggle to pick favourites out of a great looking line up. Perhaps the Tyrrells, Gold Leaf Lotus' and Mclaren M23. All are excellent though.

Ward, if I understood correctly, this is only cars that took the entire championship title rather than every individual race winner. Does that add up?

Hi - yep, that's correct, variations of the cars driven in each year by the Drivers Champs/Manufacturers champs, rather than one from each race/each race they won;

1968 Graham Hill Drivers Champ in a Ford engined car - 3 different variants of the cars he drove that year to victory in grand prixs - a Lotus 49 (the one with no wings - Spain), a 49B with the low wing (Monaco) and a 49B with the high wing (Mexico)
1968 Lotus Ford Manufacturers Champions

1969 -Jackie Stewart - MS80 no wings (Italy), MS80 low wings (Holland), MS80 high wings (Spain). He also drove an MS10 to victory at Kayalami (South Africa) - that's one of the two missing models and looks a bit different as it has the high front and low wings before they were banned).
1970 - Matra Ford Manufacturers Champions

1970 - Jochen Rindt - 49C Monaco, 72C High Wing with air box (Germany), 72C High Wing no air box (France)
1970 - Lotus Ford Manufacturers Champions

1971 - Jackie Stewart - Tyrell 001 (Monaco, France, Spain),Tyrell 003 (GB)
1971 - Tyrell Ford Manufacturers Champions

1972- Fittipaldi - Lotus 72D High Wing- GB, 72D High Wing forward position (Spain)
1972 - Lotus Ford Manufacturers Champion

1973 - Stewart Tyrell 006
1973 - Lotus Ford Manufacturers Champion - Fittipaldi 72D, Fittipaldi 72E

1974 - Fittipaldi Mclaren MP23

1976 - James Hunt Mclaren MP23

1978 - Mario Andretti Lotus 78 (Argentina), Lotus 79 (Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Holland)
1978 - Lotus Ford Manufacturers Champion

1980 - Alan Jones Williams FW07B (Argentina, France, GB, USA, Canada)

1981 - Piquet - Brabham BT49C (Argentina, San Marino, Germany)
1981 - Williams Ford (FW07C) (missing in my collection) - Manufacturers Champion

1994 - Michael Schumacher Bennetton B194 (Brazil, Pacific, San Marino, Monaco, France, Canada, Hungary, European)


GuitarDave - please tell me how to put pictures rather than links to pictures in the thread - have been tearing what little of my hair is left out trying to work that out!!

That is amazing, just two away. I wish you the best of luck of finding those remaining cars. I really do love this collection!

I placed your photos larger in your thread. Once you have the images posted to phtobucket, just like you do now, simply move your cursor over the desired image. A drop down menu will automatically open revealing 4 different option. Move the cursor down to the bottom selection (IMG code) and left click, you will see it say "copied". Now back to your thread you are wanting to post the photos in and right click, choosing paste. WHALA!

Good luck and looking forward to more great photos!

I have made it a sticky.
With some of the feedback I have been getting from some of the newer members, I think we are approaching the point where we need a FAQ section.
Something to work on.

Thanks Jeff. FAQ sounds like a plan. I would happily contribute articles, walkthroughs etc when time and knowledge allowed.

Warning - Author suffering from collection scope creep on account of no sign of the Matra MS10 and Williams FW07C being produced any time soon..........

As winter fast approaches and time spent on Ebay increases proportionately, have indulged myself in a few models - not in keeping with the collection theme, but i'll stretch the point on these as they were all Ford powered and drivers I liked or race victories I admired:

Quartzo's 1967 Jim Clark Lotus 49 Dutch Winner
Minichamps 1981 John Watson Mclaren MP4 GB Winner
Modified Onyx 1993 Ayrton Senna MP4/8 Australia Winner
Hot Wheels 1999 Johnny Herbert Stewart SF3 European Winner

Great looking collection Paul. It's come a long way since your first post in 2011.

As the collection is close to being completed, here's another one for you to consider (which you may have already thought about) :

Image

I know your collection is based on Championship winners, but this model of the 2003 Jordan that Giancarlo Fisichella drove to win the Brazilian Grand Prix was Ford's last ever F1 victory (it's also a cool looking car and I also have a soft spot for Fisichella after his drives for Alfa Romeo in the DTM). It's therefore the other 'book-end' to your 1967 Jim Clark Lotus 49 from the Dutch GP - Fords 1st ever GP winner.

Paul, have a look at the front wheel on this car, maybe there is something eating it away or something you can do to tidy it up.

Good spot - that looks like a saveable situation ( I hope) with some Micro Sol or Solvaset - will let you know!

Its a great looking car. I also have a big soft spot for Benetton liveried cars - if i had the cabinet space i would undoubtedy add many more F1 cars to the collection!

I'd also add that Keke ran an FW08 without rear engine cover in the 1982 Detroit Grand Prix but nobody has made this car.

Impressive collection Paul, and a good theme. Reminds me that I need to get an Alan Jones Williams.

I hestitated over this as there is something a little uncomfortable about buying a model of a car the driver was killed in practice in, however, for completeness in the collection, I have added Rindt's Italian GP qualifying Lotus. Although a number of cars ran at Monza without any wings given the low number of corners on a high speed circuit, it is understood to have been a break shaft failure coupled with poor crash barriers that were the ultimate cause of his death as he approach the parabolica corner. The only posthumous World Champion of F1.

I understand your hesitation Paul, but death has long been a part of motorsport.

With my collection, I have deliberately sought out models of drivers killed at Le Mans because I want to pay my respects to them in my collection. Fortunately, relatively few drivers have been killed at Le Mans over the 84 races, but I wouldn't think of my collection as being complete without the cars of Tom Cole, Jean-Marie Brussin, John Woolfe, Jo Bonnier, Jo Gartner and Allan Simonsen.
