Formula 1 Dream Team

A  Survey was circulated to select the F1 Dream Team.  Drivers and Team Bosses – past and present – were asked to vote for their ‘Dream Team’.  Their list was to include two drivers, one team boss and one car from any era in F1 history.

As for team boss, Ross Brawn gets the collective nod. Technical director of the championship-winning Benetton and Ferrari teams, Brawn went on to win a drivers’ and constructors’ double championship as team principal of his own team in 2009, and then laid the foundations for Mercedes’ current success.

McLaren’s all-conquering MP4/4 is the car of choice in the ultimate Dream Team. Developed by Steve Nichols and Gordon Murray, it claimed an astonishing 15 poles and 15 victories from the 16-race 1988 season. The fact it was the car in which the legendary rivalry between Alain Prost and Senna only added to its fame.

And the two Driver are — Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher

 

I have the list of top 5 in each category:

TEAM BOSS –

And the CARS –

#1 – McLaren MP4/4 (1988),

#2 – Williams FW14B (1991 & 1992),

#3 – Lotus 79 (1979 and was the first car to begin utilizing aerodynamic ground effects),
