1982 was to be Ferrari's year in every sense. Instead it turned out to be an unfortunate season. Without the tragedy of Gilles Villeneuve, who died in Zolder on Saturday 8 May in the qualifications of the Belgian Grand Prix, and then the accident of Didier Pironi, who at the beginning of August destroyed his legs during the free practice at Hockenheim the 126 C2 would probably have brought back to Maranello that Piloti title that had been missing since 1979. Thanks to the work of the English technician Harvey Postlehwaite, this single-seater was built around an innovative body. In practice, two half-shells joined together along the longitudinal axis. The strong point was the chassis and aerodynamics, which still used the ground effect allowed by regulations. The Ferrari 126 C2 weighed 582 kg. This car gave Ferrari the manufacturers’ title. During the season, a total of 11 chassis were made and different technical innovations were introduced, such as the pull-rod suspensions in the front adopted from the Detroit race. The engine was the V6 120 ° turbo 1.5 liter of 580 hp, supercharged with two centrally positioned KKK turbochargers equipped with a single wastegate valve and successfully developed during the previous season on the 126 C. The gearbox was a 5/6 gear plus reverse. In 1982 Ferrari also returned to using Goodyear tires instead of the Michelin tires that had been used in the previous four seasons. To bring it to success on two occasions (Imola and Zandvoort) was Pironi. Patrick Tambay also achieved a victory in Hockenheim, after taking Villeneuve's place. Four drivers drove it, with Mario Andretti competing in the last two GP’s in Monza and Las Vegas.
