Nice - but the 641 is even nicer. With the 312T and 312B it's my favourite Grand Prix car - I'm not demeaning these beauties with an abbreviated 'F1'.

One from the year before, just as pretty, just as great sounding. Coming up for auction soon. Beautiful.
Stunning. That would be my first Lotto purchase

I'm a McLaren fan really, but this Ferrari makes me weak at the knees.

My favourite driver, Alain Prost, taking the fight to McLaren and Senna in 1990.

Beautiful piece of engineering

Read a magazine from 1992 recently (I was a kid back then smile), F1 seemed to be in a pretty bad state back then, with the bad economy hampering all but the top teams. Apparently Senna made 225milj sek a year, corrected to inflation thats 320milj today = about 30m € . More than Team lotus whole race budget according to the article. thats was a big paycheck !

Despite that, there were 26 cars on every grid and pre-qualification was required to eliminate other cars as more than 26 were trying to start each race.

There were also far more sponsors involved with each time than today.
