You might notice that the history page just lists the IP address, and no user name. I forgot to log in before writing the article. Is there any way to change the history page to list myself as the author. If there is, please tell me.--M Johnson 07:45, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

I corrected some typos, removed a couple of factual inaccuracies and cleaned up the formatting.[edit]

This is my first Wikipedia edit ever (go me!). I'm going to do a little research and then add some decent material about the car itself into the article when I can. It won't be too in-depth because obviously that sort of content belongs elsewhere on the web, but I feel that for such a dominant car in F1 history, there should be more than there is here at the moment.Oldfinger 18:01, 9 April 2006 (UTC)


Car designer[edit]

The sole designer of this car was Gordon Murray, he brought the entire project from Brabham (which has a bad implementation of it), Steve Nichols never touched this car. He can removed from the project staff safely. Saulocpp.

Correction: Bol Bell was the responsible for aerodynamics. I still don't know what Steve Nichols is doing there. Saulocpp.

Racing car template[edit]

I've had a stab at a template for racing cars (see template:Racing car) to summarise the usual data. I've used the F1 templates as a starting point and applied it to the Brabham BT46 article. If anyone's got an interest in this, please have a look at the template and modify or suggest changes as appropriate. After a few people have had a go at it and we have something we're happy with we could start to use it more widely. Note that it's not meant to be specific to F1, by the way.

Fair use rationale for Image:Mclaren logo (old).gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mclaren logo (old).gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
