The "completely mad" nose job that transformed F1 design

When Ferrari expats Harvey Postlethwaite and Jean-Claude Migeot landed at Tyrrell in 1989, they devised a stepped-nose that would become commonplace in F1 for the next three decades. This is the story of that car, the Tyrrell 019

In 2021 Formula 1 will, for the first time in approximately 25 years, stray away from the commonplace raised nose designs. In their place, the front wing will now be directly attached to the nose; for the aesthete, the reversal will evoke memories of F1 challengers from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

For the aerodynamicist, it will deprive them of a lucrative stream of downforce made available by opening up the centreline of the car.
