1979 Tyrrell 009 Lees

Tyrrell 009 designed by Maurice Philippe was typical F1 car of the period featuring ground effect tubular  monococque chassis, 3-liter Ford Cosworth FFV V8 engine, and  Hewland  6-speed manual gearbox. Despite its standard features, the car was quite competitive – Didier Pironi and Jean-Pierrre Jarrier scored 2 podiums each and finished the season in 10th and 11th positions with 14 points each. Englishman Geoff Lees replaced Jarier for German GP and finished 7th in the race.
