Arguably the most radical design ever to compete in Formula 1, the Tyrrell P34 caused a sensation when it was revealed to the public. The car's designer, Derek Gardner, wanted to reduce drag by making the frontal area smaller, so instead of two normal-sized tires he used four small diameter tires that could be steered together. This also meant that the tires would be shrouded by the nose, further reducing drag. Making its debut at the 1976 Spanish GP, the car proved to be competitive, and it reached the pinnacle of its success with drivers Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler finishing 1st and 2nd respectively at the Swedish GP.

A Revolutionary Presence
Announced on September 22, 1975, the Tyrrell P34 caused a sensation - little wonder when one considers that it was the first six-wheeled Formula One car! Its layout employed 4 front wheels in an effort to reduce air drag while simultaneously improving the car's braking and steering. Following a number of test sessions and associated updates to the design, the P34 debuted in the hands of Patrick Depailler in the Spanish GP of May 1976. Things really took off a month later at the Swedish GP when Jody Scheckter led home Depailler in a marvellous 1-2 finish for the P34, demonstrating the potential that the car had, underlined by Tyrrell's 3rd place finish in that year's Constructors' standings.
