Share Article

The popular auto news site recently compiled a comprehensive list of the all-time best Formula 1 cars.

Gear Heads, a source for controversial automotive industry news and rumors, has released their list of the all-time greatest Formula 1 cars. The list was put together by writer and blogger Andrew Tipp, an F1 fan and overall auto enthusiast for the past 13 years. Auto enthusiasts can review the “8 Greatest Formula 1 Cars” list online at the GearHeads website.

Tipp referred to the list inclusions when he said, “Any such list is ultimately subjective. The cars on this list resemble a broad consensus among F1 fans, but these are my choices from the history of the world’s premier motor sport. So here they are. Eight greats. They’ve been driven by legends. Celebrated by millions.”

Factors such as raw speed, aerodynamics, titles, victories and overall style were all considerations when the “8 Greatest Formula 1 Cars” list was being compiled. The list includes a wide variety of F1 cars from different manufacturers, with Ferrari scoring two inclusions on the list. Included on the list were; the Alfa 158/159, Maserati 250F, Lotus 72, Ferrari 312T, McLaren MP4/4, Williams FW14B, Ferrari F2002 and the Red Bull RB7.

Tipp explained why he chose the Alfa 158/159 as the number one Formula 1 car when he said, “Aesthetically the Alfa 158/159 is simple, no-nonsense beauty, and driving it must have felt like sitting at the back of a red missile. It invokes a nostalgic feel for the early, pioneering days of motor racing; back when winning was all about power, pace, bravery, and whoever could keep the car on track.”
