10 times F1 teams employed “interim” cars

Be it through a lack of finance, teething problems or needing more development time, Formula 1 teams have often used development cars on an interim basis. In this video, 10 of F1’s most interesting interim cars are explored, with varying degrees of success between them.




  • Imagine trying hard to make a good car and someone else just shows up with last years car and wins 5 races in a row

  • Kimi Raikkonen put in the performance of the century in 2003. He took a one-year old McLaren, due to the fact McLaren FAILED to launch their real 2003 car, to the final round of the WDC. Kimi in 2003 > Alonso in 2012. Raikkonen was unbeatable on pure speed in the tyre war era. Without the engine failure at Nurburgring, Kimi wins the 2003 WDC.

    • @Ciaron Smith I forgot about those DNFs. Coulthard did demolish häkkinen but you could also tell he wasn't himself anymore after his son was born. Yeah I'd have to agree with you Raikkonen was definitely the fastest during that period.

      Nando VillatoroNando VillatoroMuaj më parë
    • @Nando Villatoro Wrong. Kimi was much quicker than Coulthard in 2002, it was just that Kimi's car had 12 DNFS!!! He only finished 6 races in 2002 but still outqualified prime DC a year after DC had demolished Hakkinen. I repeat. Nobody was quicker than Kimi in the tyre war era.

      Ciaron SmithCiaron SmithMuaj më parë
    • @Ciaron Smith yeah but coulthard had issues qualifying with the new format too. Plus he did better than Raikkonen the year before in the same car. I mean he should've done a better job. The whole 2003 season was weird lol

      Nando VillatoroNando VillatoroMuaj më parë
    • @Nando Villatoro Look were Coulthard finished. That should tell you all you need to know. The 2003 McLaren was much slower than the Williams or Ferrari that year.

    • Dont forget hockenheim, barrichello hitting him after ralf pulled a sebastian on him (2018 Singapore). I always wondered. Were the 2003 cars that bad or were the updates that good that it helped that year old car be competitive?

    • Anthony Ackovski I think it’s a lose definition of what a interim car is, the mp4/5b was meant to and did race all season where as the fw14b was meant to be replaced by the original fw15 but since it was so successful, hence we only ever saw the fw15 in c spec.

  • Racing interim cars was common place in the 70sxand before. Teams would up grade tge cars from the year before for the first few races of the year which were usually overseas races. The teams wanted to have the reliability because it sas much more difficult to get spares to the races back then. You missed the 1980 Ferrari 312 T-5 which was jyst a slighly modified 312 T-4 which had won the both championships the year berfore. It was a disaster and defending wold champion Jody Scheckter didn't even qualify for the Canadian GP. Ferrari went this route as they were concentrating on the 1981 126 C turdo for the next season.
