Type 015 naturally aspirated 12-cylinder
Type 015 5-speed
Steel tube frame
The Ferrari 312T5 was a Formula 1 racing car, which the Ferrari used in 1980 in the Formula 1 World Championship.
The 312T5 was the successor of the 312T4, with which the pilots of the Scuderia could not build on the successes of the 1979 season. The wide and flat 12-cylinder V-engine with 180 ° bank angle (the cylinders were exactly opposite) could be much less well integrated into the body than the 312T4. The car got a new design, the side boxes were edged.
The season was a disaster for the Scuderia. Jody Scheckter scored just two world championship points the other constructors' cars got better aerodynamic throughout the season whereas the 312T5's development went virtually nowhere, the lowest number of points a Formula 1 world champion achieved in the season after the title. With the addition of six points from Gilles Villeneuve, the Scuderia tenth in the Championship (Manufacturers World Cup).
As it was foreseeable that the 312T5 was a flop, Ferrari focused on the construction of the first Ferrari Formula 1 racing car with a turbo engine. The 126CK replaced the 312T5 before the end of the 1980 season. In contrast, a version called 312T6 is not a further development from the 312T5, but an earlier development from the year 1977, in which Ferrari experimented with two rear axles based on the Tyrrell P34, but never used them in a race.
