1978

The Scuderia, with the new head of the team Marco Piccini, changed its tyre supplier: Michelin took over from Goodyear, introducing for the first time in F1 radial tyres. With the 312 T3 Reutemann and Villeneuve – who’s courage on the track thrilled the fans – were the main players in a year with ups and downs as well as problems with the tyres, but in the end gained a total of five wins. Mario Andretti won the Drivers’ Title with Lotus 79, the first proper “wing car” in the history of Formula One.
