1990 Leyton House CG901 Capelli

Leyton House F1 team was just the rebranding of March team who returned to F1 in 1987 and raced until 1992, including two years (1990-91) under the banner of  Leyton House,  a Japanese real estate company, who sponsored the project. Judd-powered CG901 designed by Adrian Newey was struggling for the first 6 rounds of the championship: both Ivan Capelli and Maurocio Gugelmin failed to qualify in the half of the appearances. But then after significant improvements of the aerodynamics the  car manage to be much more  competitive: Capelli finished 2nd at the French Grand Prix repeating his ever best career  result. Unfortunately this was his only finish in the top-6 that season. Gugelmin also scored points only once – he was 6th in Belgium.
