1970 Ferrari 312B Giunti

Ferrari 312B was the first model in line of  B – B2 – B3, used in 1970 – 1975. With this car, designed by Mauro Forghieri and powered by newly developed flat-12 engine, Scuderia returned to winning performance.  Unlucky Chris Amon left the team, while Jacky Ickx came back joined by Clay Regazzoni. Ickx won three races in the second half of the 1970 season (in Austria, Canada, ad Mexico) and moved to the 2nd place in the final Championship standing.  Italian Ignazio Giunti was signed by Ferrari in 1970 to drive  in sports car racing. After winning of the 12 Hours of Sebring and  several other high placings, Giunti was promoted to Formula One. Initially he shared the car with Regazzoni turn by turn, and then a third car was given to him for Austrian and Italian Grand Prixs.  Giunti finished fourth on his debut in the Belgian GP at Spa. Despite poor performance in other races, including retirement at Monza, he was re-signed by Ferrari for the following season.
