Lotus in 1986 might qualify for this topic as the qualifying specification of the 1986 Lotus 98T sat lower than its rivals, its skid plates touching the tarmac resulting in spectacular showers of sparks at a number of points on the circuit. This led to rumours that the car was running illegally, its sidepods flexing which allowed the underside of the car to create a form of outlawed ground effect.
You can find out more details of that & my more from my second book entitled; Team Lotus & Their Decline Between 1983 & 1990
You can listen to a free sample here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMqtTZvAVsY
This book follows my highly acclaimed debut book; 1994 - The Untold Story of a Tragic & Controversial F1 Season (reviews of which can be found here; http://www.1994f1.com/sample-page/
The Lotus book will just be released on audiobook format initially via the retailers shown in this sample video. Please note the audiobook is unlikely to be avaliable at Audiable until Xmas 2020, please check my replies below for an update on that.
Coming soon a new F1 book revisiting the 1994 Benetton/Schumacher cheating allegations & politics
