Porsche and F1
When Porsche joined into races, Porsche astonished the planet
using its performances. But participation in F1 races
introduced mixed results. Within the 1961-1962 season, Porsche participated
like a constructor but created only one win inside a championship
race, claimed by Dan Gurney in the 1962 French Grand Prix.
Inside a non-championship race, 1 week later Stuttgart’s Solitude
it repeated the success. In the finish of year, Porsche upon the market
from F1 because of the expense.
In 1983, Porsche came back to F1, offering engines
badged as TAG units for that McLaren Team. It had been successful
because the Porsche-powered cars won two constructor titles
back in 1984 and 1985 and three driver crowns back in 1984, 1985 and 1986.
Under 10 years later, in 1991, Porsche came back like a engine
supplier, however this time the outcomes were disastrous: Hard work, the
Porsche-powered cars, didn’t score just one point and also at over half
from the races it also unsuccessful to qualify. Since that year, Porsche has
not participated to F1.
Still, gently-modified Porsches take part in many competitions
all over the world, mostly in amateur courses of instruction for enthusiasts. The
only professional category may be the Porsche Michelin Supercup raced
like a support category for European F1 models.
