How Chapman's wedge-shaped wonder won Fittipaldi’s heart
Emerson Fittipaldi has driven many successful cars – in Formula 1 and Indycars – but his all-time favourite remains the machine in which he took his first F1 World Championship in 1972, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year
When it comes to Formula 1 designs, few have changed the game as much as Colin Chapman’s Lotus 72 – the wedge-shaped wonder. Three constructors’ championships and two drivers’ titles, the first posthumously for Jochen Rindt and the second for Emerson Fittipaldi two years later, mean it’s a car without compare in championship teams, with only McLaren’s M23 rivaling it for its 20 race wins from 75 grands prix.
Fifty years on from the first time he drove a 72, Fittipaldi doesn’t hold back when it comes to lavishing praise on both the car’s poise and Chapman’s ingenuity. Remember too that he won his second title in McLaren’s M23.
OPINION: Ferrari won the British Grand Prix with Carlos Sainz, but it ultimately cost Charles Leclerc a chance to make a bigger dent in Max Verstappen's title lead by leaving the Monegasque out on old tyres towards the end.

Max Verstappen is the world’s number one racing driver… and he’s determined to keep it that way. Speaking exclusively to GP Racing's OLEG KARPOV, the Red Bull driver explains why he’s relishing the 2022 championship battle with Charles Leclerc – and why he’s not worried about returning to Silverstone, the scene of the biggest accident of his career last year
On Tuesday, Red Bull laid out its plans to develop and build a new hypercar - the RB17 - penned by Adrian Newey. As the project itself sates Newey as a creative outlet, it also offers Red Bull's Formula 1 team a number of new and exciting avenues to pursue.
OPINION: The British Grand Prix is a home event for Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, with their Mercedes team based just a few miles away too. But there’s another reason why the Silver Arrows squad is eager to arrive at Silverstone this weekend, which may help it fix its remaining problems with its 2022 Formula 1 challenger .
