Description

The F1 story of the Tyrrell team is among the most captivating of them all. And we are praising it with this beautiful Tyrrell 001 art, created by Luis Ferrera.

Everything started in the late 50`s when Ken Tyrrell realized he`ll never be an exceptional racing driver. That’s why he created a team of his own which joined Formula Junior where compact stock engines were fitted in an open wheel bodies. Later he participated in different Formula championships and discovered racing stars like John Surtees and Jacky Ickx. Ken Tyrrell definitely had an eye for talents by attracting and discovering names like Jean Alesi, Jody Scheckter, Jos Verstappen, Martin Brundle, Michele Alboreto and last but not least Jackie Stewart.

Jackie-Stewart-tyrell

Tyrrell 001 was born in pretty interesting circumstances. Ken Tyrrell managed to move his team from F2 into the more prestigious F1 championship, thanks to the help of Ford and Elf. It became possible in 1968 through joint-venture between his team and the team of Matra, noted French car manufacturer. It was pretty successful debut season because of the several GP wins the team achieved. Well, things get even better for the following `69 season when Jackie Stewart won the title and it happened for a first time with a French team and the first and only occasion with a chassis built in France. The troubles came in season `70 when Matra merged with Simca, which was a subsidiary of Chrysler. This meant Tyrrell couldn’t use Ford engines because of their rivalry with Chrysler and the available then Matra engine wasn’t good enough. This is what forced Ken Tyrrell to secretly start developing of his first own car.

This is how Tyrrell 001 was born. It appeared at the end of `70 season and earned a pole position in the Canadian GP, even though it couldn’t finish the tree remaining starts because of technical failures, one of them caused by a dog on the track of Mexico GP. The nearly identical Tyrrell 003 won both drivers and constructor` Championship in the following 1971 season with strong performance by Jackie Stewart and Francois Cevert.
