One of the most extreme innovations Formula 1 has ever seen was the Tyrrell P34. In a bid to maximise performance while still adhering to tyre regulations, Tyrrell decided to go down the rather interesting route of a six-wheeled car. The F1 regulations were changed in the mid-1970s, reducing the maximum width front wing to 1.5 metres. This meant the front tyres would be poking outside, disturbing airflow and harming the car’s performance.
