This is the year in which Jackie Steward and Ken Tyrrell drove Matra MS80 and led the team “Matra International” to win 6 matches out of 11, and the first year championship. Other teams like Ferrari got the newly transferred Icxx, Brabham switched the engines from Repico to CosWorth, the “Bruce and Denny” combination from McLaren, all fought for the 1st runner up in the 1969 GP season. After the regulations changed concerning the high wings, various modifications had been seen on all teams’ machines, also the trial use of 4 wheel drive system within the 3 strongest teams (Matra, Lotus, and McLaren) formed a very interesting topic in terms of form and mechanism.

Therefor, this issue will be focussing on the changes of the different cars within the racing season, and the details of the 4WD machines. In addition, precious pictures of the F5000 will be included...
