This was the upstart Jordan team’s first car back in 1991. Eddie Jordan and his Irish gang had made the jump up from F3000 to compete at the highest level of motorsport, managing two fourth places during the season. A fastest lap at the Hungarian GP for Betrand Gachot was another high point, but it came shortly before he was put in prison in the UK for two months for spraying CS gas at a London cabbie.
This vacancy gave way for a promising young driver by the name of Michael Schumacher to take the Frenchman’s place at the Belgian Grand Prix – he only lasted one race, getting snapped up by Flavio Briatore at Benetton.
Jordan raced its first year with this snazzy 7-Up-inspired green paint job on a sleek car designed by F1 veteran Gary Anderson – many fans will cite this car as the most beautiful to have raced in F1.
