The Arrows A1 was the first true F1 car designed and built by Arrows Grand Prix International. The car designed by Tony Southgate and Dave Wass raced in the second half of the 1978 season replacing FA1 which was a copy of Shadow DN9. For 1979 the A1 had been prepared to an updated version, known as A1B specification, which was in use in the first 6 races of the 1979 season before being succeeded by new A2 model. Riccardo Patrese’s  5th place in the Belgian Grand Prix was the best result for Arrows in the 1979 Formula 1 season.
