Originally posted on the GGLC blog: The history of a race car (by Chapman Report Online) but I figured Lotus talkers would like to read it as well.

Question: Which Formula 1 car has been raced by no less than 4 World Champions?

Answer: The Lotus Type 49. More specifically the Lotus Type 49 Chassis R5/R10 which was raced by Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi and Mario Andretti. Originally introduced in 1968 the R5/R10 chassis took Graham Hill to his 1968 Championship as well as victories in the '68 and '69 Monaco Grand Prix. <a href="">Click through</a> to read the full history of a very special Lotus.
