Now, about the car's achievements. It wins its first race in 1969 at the Spanish Grand Prix, with Jackie finishing two laps before the runner-up. This season the car brings Jackie five victories and earns him the title of a F1 World Champion. Given the fact that the car is a complete redesign, races for one season only, wins the first GP and lands its driver an F1 title, we think the French very well deserve a round of applause and admiration for this achievement.
Matra is not a name that resonates as much as Ferrari or Mercedes do among the current generation of F1 fans. Back in the day, the MS80 is not an eye-catcher either and is definitely not a poster queen. But it has this quirky French look - the colour, the duck-shaped front and the weird air ducks that definitely ring a bell to a true F1 fan. This Matra MS80 art is full of automotive gorgeousness and tells a beautiful French F1 story.
The Matra MS80 joins the race in 1969. It is a completely new car compared to the its predecessor MS11. The famous Cosworth DFV V8 engine powers this French beauty. The car is among the first to utilize a wing to increase the grip on the back tires during high speed. The fuel cell of the car is moved from behind the driver to the side panels. The front suspension gets a complete replacement. It goes from rocker arms to outboard springs with a parallel link to the rear suspension.
Jackie Stewart himself refers to MS80 as the easiest to handle F1 car he has ever driven. That's big praise coming from a driver like Jackie.
