WTF Happened to Mastercard Lola (Worst Formula 1 Team Ever?)

299 260 Näkymät

Back in April 2018, I labelled Andrea Moda as the worst Formula 1 team of all time. Were they, though? Or was there perhaps an even worse team?

  • I think the biggest problem Lola had was that F1 had changed dramatically in the last 5 or 6 years. The kind of blagging that Eddie Jordan was able to pull in the early days of Jordan just was not longer possible by 1997. The half arsed deal Lola had with Mastercard may have paid off had the team been set up in the 80s, but not in the late 90s. Lola being an old school motor racing manufacturer still had an old school mentality in an era of new school thinking.

  • To be honest, mastercard bosses behaved like s***bags on that circumnstance. Forcing a team to completely build a F1 car in 4 months, ignoring Lolas advices, proven they didnt know a s**t about motorsport, and that came in a key moment for Lola to actually save their brand, i feel sorry for those guys

    Zane MurchaZane Murcha4 kuukautta sitten
  • Really it’s crazy that this happened, as Lola we’re not newbies regards top level motorsports (though in sports cars and endurance etc) so they should have also known all about sponsors and the business side (which in f1 is arguably the true sport.. a management and business contest, with the cars just the focus).

  • Is it a good thing that due to the current team rules, it’s just about impossible to start a team and enter F1? You need to buy a team that has an entry, and rename it if you please. (Yes ok you can.. but it is virtually impossible and you need votes from current teams and things right?) I think they should open it up to chancers again.. have customer cars again (so you could have a 21stcentury Hesketh, maybe run by Elon Musk, with none or SpaceX sponsorship... oh god that would be SICK). I think customer cars is a good idea for all sorts of reasons, but if you open up for more teams, bring back the competition for grid spots. 30 cars racing for 24 spots (or however many they decide). I always loved that in the old days. Anyway .. I’m rambling due to sleep dep. love your videos mate!

  • Used to think that Lola was to blame for this project being so terrible, just because they thought they could pull such a task off at the last minute. But now I think Master Card should've given the team a little more time to prepare the car. Even if they still wanted to start in F1 in 1997 they should've just let them develop a car throughout the year. Also when are we getting a WTF Riccardo "Tosser" Rosset video?

  • The real reason the '95 T95/30 didn't have an airbox was because the FIA was proposing to ban them after the Senna accident to reduce speeds. There was a lot of speculation about regulation changes like that when the car was being developed, which is why it looks so odd. They kept trying to change separate bits to make it legal.

  • This story is the precise reason as to why the F1 entry fee is so abhorrent nowadays BEFORE LOLA: The entry fee was $500k and was paid back to you on completion of your first season AFTER LOLA: Bernie Ecclestone jacked it up to an eye watering $48million with it paid back in $2million instalments in your first two years OUCH!! That’s why since then, in 23 years, only Toyota, Super Aguri and Haas have ponied up the cash to enter, oh and also the three newbies of 2010. Every other new team in that time bought an existing entry, thereby circumnavigating that $48million fee

  • Spyker F1 has a somewhat similar story(I looked into their F1 move as business case study), they went in counting pennies and wanted to use F1 as a billboard for their tiny company, in the words of Victor Muller "100 Million people watch F1 a year if even only 1% could afford the cars, thats still a million people". They aligned with Ferrari for 2007 because Spyker-Ferrari sounds cool if you're selling sports cars. Those engines were shit, the drivers were decent but the former Jordan/Midland team needed more fixing than just money, which Spyker also didn't have... They folded midway into the season when they sold off the team to Vijay Maliya and Spyker finished the season as the Dutch run Spyker and became Force India as we all know, and is now $troll Racing
