The March 881 was a Formula One racing car designed by Adrian Newey (his first ever F1 car) and raced by March Racing Team in the 1988 season by Italian Ivan Capelli and the debuting Maurício Gugelmin from Brazil. When March returned to F1 in 1987, Newey who worked for March in designing Indy-500 winning cars, joined the F1 team and would set to work designing a new car for the 1988 season. Newey designed a car built around the concept of overall aerodynamic efficiency.  The March 881, not being a turbocharged car, used the then new to Formula One Judd V8 engine, and was consistently the fastest speed trapped ‘atmo’ car of the 1988 season. Capelli finished the season in 7th place with 17 points, while Gugelmin generally impressed most by finished his debut season in 13th place with 5 points.
