With the new F1 season just under a month way, I was thinking of all the great teams from the past that are no more. I've excluded Alfa Romeo from the list for obvious reasons, but out of the others, which would you most like to see return to the track?

I think there's a highly British flavour to F1 already, even in teams like Renault and Honda.

I can't see that any of the old Brit teams would be much different in ethos to the likes of Williams, McLaren etc.

So, I'd choose Maserati. It'd be a kind of Ferrari clone but that's not too bad.

On the other hand, a Matra or Ligier team would add a bit of colour, as long as it was more French than "international". I think Renault is more British than French at the moment and F1 is a bit poorer because of it.

Or what about Porsche? Again, they'd have to be a proper German team... not a "engine carrier" like McLaren and to a lesser extent BMW.

Lotus!! :D

Colin Chapman's F1 Team Lotus and numerous sports racing projects (especially the mid engined Lotus 23 for which the Lotus/Ford twin cam engine was originally developed), plus his road & track variations on the Super Seven and the original Elan, inspired me plus no doubt many other AO members to become the confirmed petrol-heads/Alfaholics that we are today

:) :D

:cool: Hesketh Racing....the bunch of eccentrics who gave James Hunt his start in GP racing.....he even upset the "serious" teams by achieving a win for the team,a surprise to Hesketh as much as the folk looking down their noses at them.

Hesketh yes...:confused:

With names like:

Lord Thomas Alexander Fermor-Hesketh
Anthony "Bubbles" Horsley
Harvey Postlethwaite

How could they possibly fail :confused:

But it does have to be Lotus :cool:
