The 126C4 was the further upgrade of the 126C car introduced first in the 1981 and raced also in 1982 (as  C2), 1983 (C2B and C3). While the 126C4’s engine was powerful at around 850 bhp in qualifying making it virtually the equal of the BMW and Renault engines (and more power than McLaren had with their TAG-Porsche engines), the car itself produced little downforce compared to its main rivals. The 126C4 won only once in 1984 at the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder, driven by Italian Michele Alboreto who won his first race for the team. Alboreto was 4th in the final drivers’ championship standings. His experienced teammate Rene Arnoux scored several podiums and finished the season 6th.
