    Being both an F1 fan and a history geek, I started looking at some of the current F1 teams and where they have come from (who bought who, etc.) So far, this is what I have come up with. (In no particular order)

    Ferrari (enough said)
    McLaren (ditto)
    Williams (Same)
    Red Bull was Jaguar was Stewart
    Lotus was Renault was Benneton was Toleman
    Mercedes was Brawn was Honda was BAR was Tyrell
    Force India was Spyker was Midland was Jordan
    Sauber was BMW was Sauber (not a typo, go look it up)
    Toro Rossa was Minardi
    Caterham was Team Lotus
    Marussia was Virgin Racing

    I think that that’s it, what do you think, did I get it all right? Also, it is kind of weird to think what might have been, especially for world championship winning teams like Benneton. At any rate, let me know what you think

    You got it all right, apart from the fact that it’s spelled Benetton.

    BAR never “was Tyrrell”, they just bought their entry. But it was a completely different team based in a different factory.

    I think you’ve got a bit of research to do on McLaren was McLaren and Project 4, and on Williams was sort of ISO. Also I’d say Marussia was Virgin was Manor.

    @dedischado I think you’ll find this poster by @pjtierney rather up your alley:

    Thanks all,
    Matthijs thank you, don’t know how I missed that.
    Keith, Thanks, that was not made clear in my late-night research, also, wonderful site you have here
    Meander, I thought Project 4 was hired by McLaren to help? Right, more research
    Ajokay, oooh, thanks, that looks really good.
