1983 Tyrrell 012 Alboreto

Tyrrell 012 designed by Maurice Philippe was introduced during the  final part of  the 1983 season, and was subsequently used in 1984 as well as in  the first few races of 1985. Large budget due to Benetton sponsoring in 1983 helps Tyrrel to develop a promising car.  It had progressive design with short angular sidepods similar to those of Brabham BT52, but atmospheric Cosworth DFY engine was no match for the more powerful turbo cars. The initial version of Tyrrell 012 had a triangle-shaped rear-wing design (nicknamed “boomerang”). The car with this wing design was seen only once during a Grand Prix weekend, in the hands of Michele Alboreto during practice for the 1983 Austrian Grand Prix.
