1982 Tyrrell 011 Alboreto

The Tyrrell 011 designed by Maurice Philippe for the Tyrrell Racing Organisation made its debut in the hands of American Eddie Cheever at the 1981 German Grand Prix. The car featured the aluminium monocoque     and Cosworth DFV 2,993 cc engine. In 1982 the 011 was used full season driven by Michele Alboreto as the driver number 1. The second car was provided to Swede pay driver Slim Borgudd who was replaced by British Brian Henton after three first races when Borgudd’s money ran out. The car proved to be very reliable and performed surprisingly well. Alboreto was able to score points regularly, taking 3rd place at San Marino Grand Prix. But the culmination of the season for Tyrrell was the last round of the championship, Caesars Palace Grand Prix held in Las Vegas. Alboreto took the comfortable win, his first ever and the first for Tyrrell in four years. Alboreto became the 11th different victor that year.
