DuringLotus painted an Imperial Tobacco livery on their cars, thus introducing sponsorship to the sport. During the late s, Lotus introduced ground-effect aerodynamics previously used on Jim Hall 's Chaparral 2J during that provided enormous downforce and greatly increased cornering speeds. So great were the aerodynamic forces pressing the cars to the track up to five times the car's weightextremely stiff springs were needed to maintain a constant ride heightleaving the suspension virtually solid, depending entirely on the tyres for any small amount of cushioning of the car and driver from irregularities of the road surface.

Sincethree track marshals have lost their lives, one at the Italian Grand Prix the second at the Australian Grand Prix  and the third at the Canadian Grand Prix.
This so-called 'narrow track' era resulted in cars with smaller rear tyres, a narrower track overall, and the introduction of grooved tyres to reduce mechanical grip.
