Unraced projects of the 1985 season

As there are over 650 Unraced F1 projects from the period 1885 – 2020 I decided before to publish articles of Unraced projects per year.

In 1996 Schumacher moved to Ferrari and by 1997 key former Benetton personnel like Ross Brawn or Rory Bryne (the B194 designer), Tad Czapski (the engine electronic’s guru) joined him. Ferrari then went from being an occasional race winner to serial championship contenders over a sustained period.

The old rumour mill; Benetton – BMW V12

James Hunt, the most flamboyant character the Formula One ever had. The world champion of 1976 withdrew from the paddock during the 1979 season when he was the driver for Walter Wolf’s racing team.

Alfa Romeo, the comeback kid

What we already knew became a fact; Alfa Romeo Racing will make its comeback as team in the Formula One. The name Sauber F1 Team will disappear, probably permanently, from the Formula One. It is not the first time Alfa Romeo makes its debut or comeback in the Formula One as team. Hopefully the team will stay longer than their last attempt. Alfa Romeo made its debut during the Targa
