1990 Arrows A11B
Offered by RM Sotheby’s | Le Castellet, France | November 19, 2021
Arrows was around in F1 for quite a while: from 1978 through 2002, although they were known as Footwork Arrows for five years in the ’90s. The A11, and its derivatives, the A11B and A11C, were the team’s entries for the 1989, 1990, and 1991 seasons.
The A11 was designed by Ross Brawn, and the B variant was largely the same as the earlier car aside from some suspension modifications. The car was originally powered by a 3.5-liter Ford-Cosworth V8, although this chassis is currently engine-less. The competition history for this chassis, A11B03, includes:
- 1990 San Marino Grand Prix – DNQ
- 1990 Monaco Grand Prix – DNQ
- 1990 Canadian Grand Prix -25th, DNF (with Michele Alboreto)
- 1990 Mexican Grand Prix – 17th (with Alboreto)
