1992 Brabham BT60B Amati

The BT60 was the final Formula One car built for the Brabham Formula One motor racing team. It was the modification of the BT60Y designed by Sergio Rinland and Tim Densham in 1991. For 1992 the Yamaha OX99 V12 engine was replaced by Judd GV V10. The cars were driven by Eric van de Poele from Belgium and Italian rookie Giovanna Amati. After van de Poele qualified 26th and last and finished 13th at the opening race in South Africa, neither car qualified for a race until round nine. Giovanna Amati, 32 years old female driver who competed in F3000 in 1987 – 1991, was around 10 second slower than pole sitter in qualifying sessions of first  three rounds, and was replaced by Damon Hill after the Brazilian Grand Prix. Amati became the fifth woman Formula One driver and still (as of 2020) is the most recent female driver to have entered the Formula One World Championship.
