An important car because it marked the application of ground effect in Formula 1, thanks to some brilliant intuitions of Colin Chapman together with Bellamy, Ogilvie and the aerodynamicist Peter Wright. The car debuted in 1977, with Andretti and Nilsson winning five GP's but it was not enough to beat Lauda's Ferrari. In 1978 the Lotus team had a free field and the 78 won two more GPs with Andretti and Peterson, before giving way to the 79, even more refined and competitive. That year Mario Andretti won the Drivers 'World Championship and Lotus the Constructors' World Championship. The 79 was also used sporadically in 1979 by some private teams.
