Your prettiest F1 cars of all time

You know the Ferrari 312T series from the movie Rush, but that was the 312T2 (the ‘T' by the way stands for transversale, the new design of gearbox that finally liberated the enormous power and driveability of Ferrari's three-litre flat 12). In 1975 when the 312T made its debut, it still sported the tall air intake chimney which you guys clearly thought shaded the lobbed off version Lauda would fail to defend his title with after the accident in 1976.
The original T was no walk in the park for Lauda, and Ferrari didn't even bother to race it for the first two rounds of the 1975 season. Lauda's skill, not to mention sheer bloody mindedness, soon had it sorted and after a debut in South Africa, took it to five wins and the title in 1975. Its successor the T3 would bag another title for Lauda in 1977 and the final version, the T5 with its awkward ground-effect ‘peplum', yet another for Jody Sheckter in 1979.
