In 1971, Bernie Ecclestone hired Gordon Murray to design a new F-1 car to rejuvenate the Brabham F-1 team. Murray focused on designing a compact, lightweight car that was simple. The result was the BT42. This vehicle featured a characteristic pyramid monocoque, a DFV engine mounted directly on the aluminum chassis and radiators mounted in the front wing for enhanced cooling performance. The suspension was comprised of coil spring damper units on front outboard double wishbones and rear 4-link setup. The rear wing was designed to be mounted as high as regulations would allow and direct airflow along the body towards it, to create down force. An improved B42, renamed the B44 was entered into the 1974 the Spanish Grand Prix. The car featured a new front suspension anti-drive geometry, and new improvements in aerodynamics. The result was Carlos Reutemann drove the car to three victories. In 1975, Martini & Rossi became the main sponsor of the team, Martini & Rossi, and a new driver, Carlos Pace, joined Reutemann. The team won the German GP, Brazilian GP and took several other podium finishes. They finished the year by taking 2nd place at the Constructor's Championship.
