My Top Five F1 Cars, in no particular order. Number 3 – Ferrari 641

2 Jun

Third on the list this week is another Ferrari, the 641. Built as a modification of the John Barnard designed 640 that was used in 1989, it was piloted by the rather epic partnership of Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell in 1990. I’ve loved the look of this car ever since I watched a video my uncle had called “Mansell and Ferrari,” in which a film crew followed the moustachioed one through his final year at the team. The fact that Mansell only won a solitary race that whole year must have meant that the director cursed his luck a bit. Nevertheless, it’s a great looking car, don’t you think?
