When did F1 regs change to require the drivers feet to be behind the centerline of the front wheels? I’m sure there’s a way to search for this, but it’s defeating me. Also, prior to the rule change were there any cars from that immediate era (early 80’s I assume) that already met the rule? I’m sure years before there were cars that did, all front engine cars obviously, but I mean in the 5 years prior.

Funny, I always thought the same thing. It doesn't matter that much either way if your legs are in the crumple zone.
