BMW entered F1 at the beginning of this decade and left at the end of it.
But as well as being an engine supplier to Williams for six years, then winning a race after taking over a team of their own, BMW also recognised the importance of doing something a bit special.
They put Alessandro Zanardi back behind the wheel of an F1 car, they took F1 back to the N?ā??rburging, and they created the excellent Pit Lane Park.
It’s for that as much as their on-track performances that I’ll miss them. This gallery picks out a selection of highlights from their ten years in the sport.
