1997 Ferrari 310B F1 news, pictures, and information
The use of aerodynamics to increase the cars' grip was pioneered in Formula One in the late 1960's by Lotus, Ferrari and Brabham. As well as being blindingly fast in a straight line, F1 cars also have incredible cornering ability.
The 1997 310B was Ferrari designer John Barndard's attempt to keep rival Williams off the podium. It was an improved design package, but still used Ferrari's powerful V-10. In 1997 Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine raced for Ferrari. They had not been as competitive as they hoped for in the years preceding, however, Schumacher as the lead driver led Ferrari to 5 victories in the 1997 season. Those results might have catapulted Ferrari and Michael into the World Champion if it weren't for an incident with rival Jacques Villeneuve in the last race of the season. Nevertheless, the 310B was an incredibly successful car for Ferrari.

|1991 24 Hours of Le Mans: Facing the Giants|
|It had been more than thirty years but the Silver Arrows would compete, and win, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Jaguar would also earn its first victory in more than thirty years when it took the overall honors in 1988. And then there was Porsche, the most dominant mark in Le Mans history. But each of these three manufacturers shared something in common.
