RIP Mauro Forghieri

Mauro Forghierii, Ferrari's technical chief from 1962 to 1984 has passed away (87).
His time with Ferrari brought four drivers titles, seven constructors championships and 54 GP victories. A well respected figure, his engineering skills were a marvel. He was a legend.

What set him apart from many...producing cars like the 312T...a Forghieri design, powered by the Forghieri flat-12, driven through the Forghieri transverse gearbox. Not many engineers that could design the chassis, design the engine, and even design the transaxle.
"It dominated the 1975 season in the hands of Niki Lauda, who was on course to defend the title in 1976 in the redesigned 312 T2 until his fiery crash at the Nürburgring. He came back in 1977 to secure the third drivers’ championship for a Forghieri car."
