BBC Horizon (1981) - Gentlemen, lift your skirts. Williams F1 - Cosworth Tyrrell P34
BBC - Horizon - aired on TV 1981
Williams Formula One team Winter testing with Alan Jones driving in
December 1980 at the Paul Ricard circuit in Southern France. The day before
testing started Goodyear Tyres had decided to quit F1 due to the ban
announced by the FIA on "skirts". The FIA being based in France were
subjected to increasing pressure from the Goliath corporate car
manufacturers Ferrari (Fiat) and Renualt to ban skirts as their engines
were the wrong shape to fully capitalise the use of ground effect in the
design of their cars. This was the year before the turbo revolution hit F1 and there is a brief look
at the development of turbo.
Also features an in depth look at the Ford Cosworth engine and you are
taken around the factory, design, hand building, performance and
development of the engine.
Includes appearences from the following.
Frank Dernie (Head of Williams Research and Development) who currently
works for the Toyota Formula One team. Frank explains the fundementals of
ground effect and the importance of using skirts to achieve full potential.
Patrick Head and Frank Williams.
This is incredible footage documenting not just the Williams team but of
the Cosworth engine

Jahzzar - Breaking Bad
My drive in F1 Prost AP02 - Alesi with Cosworth V8 650 HP
This is my F1 experience from France at AGS Formula 1 driving course.
Amazing experience and one day I may come back again, but I am too tall for
formula cockpits :-(
And a few notes, it is just the real F1 chassis, but the engine was changed
from V10 to more beginner friendly and reliable V8 Cosworth. I was driving
very slowly as I came to learn, get the experience and not to race/crash.
