Benetton entered Formula One as a sponsor, but in 1985 they bought Toleman (Ayrton Senna's first team in F1) and started their own team. After 27 race wins and 2 World Championships for drivers (Michael Schumacher, in 1994 and 1995), and a Constructors' Championship (in 1995), the team was sold to their engine suppliers. Who were they?
BMW entered Formula One for the first time in the 1960s without any kind of results. They returned as an engine supplier in the 1980s and again between 2000-2005. In 2006, they decided to enter their own team by buying the assets of an existing one. Their effort ended in 2009 (after a single race win, by Robert Kubica) when financial problems caused them to sell the assets back to the team they had bought them from. Which team was that?
Honda participated in Formula One between 1964 and 1968 with two race wins (by Richie Ginther and John Surtees). They came back as engine suppliers in the 1980s and again in 1999 for a team they bought in 2006 to re-establish their own enterprise. Which team's assets did they buy?
Jordan was in Formula One from 1991 to 2005 while achieving 4 race wins. In their last season, the team was no longer Eddie Jordan's. He had sold it to a Russian group that kept the name for one year before changing it for the 2006 season. What name did they change it to?
Ligier was one of France's iconic teams in Formula One. They were active from 1976 to 1996 in which they won a Grand Prix 9 times, 7 won by French driver Jacques Laffite. At the end of the 1996 season, the team was bought by another French driver who was a four-time World Champion. Who was he?
The Lotus story ended not with a sale, but an alliance. After 73 race wins, 7 Constructors Championships and 6 drivers, the team virtually had no money. So, they converged with a minor team, a little better financially, but at a cost. The name Lotus disappeared from the tracks. With what team did Lotus made an alliance in 1995?
After joining Jackie Stewart in his team's short adventure in Formula One (1997 to 1999), Ford bought the team and named it Jaguar (one of the car companies they owned at the time). The team was active up to 2004 with 2 third places as best results. After the lack of wins, Ford decided to sell the team. What company stepped up to form a new team for the 2005 season?
Shadow was sort of an obscure team with only 1 race win (by Alan Jones) in its active seasons from 1973 to 1980. By then, the team was strapped for cash and was sold to Dutchman Teddy Yip. What was Yip's team name?
Minardi was a bottom dweller for most of its 21 seasons in Formula One (1985 to 2005). When the team ran out of money, it was sold to Red Bull and became its "B" team. To honor Minardi, Red Bull kept an Italian name, "Toro Rosso". What does that mean in Italian?
Nothing: it was the name of the team's technical director
Wolf was a Canadian team that entered Formula One in 1976 in a partnership with Frank Williams. After Williams left to re-establish his own team, Wolf stood alone, managing 3 race wins in 1977, by Jody Scheckter.
