No F1 team signs a bad driver on purpose. But sometimes a variety of factors get in the way and deals that were signed with high expectations fail to work out. For this video we've gone back through the history of each of the 10 teams on the current F1 grid - tracing some back through various previous guises - to work out who has been their worst driver of all time. Let us know who we missed!

McLaren's should've been Michael Andretti, a terrific Indycar/CART driver that hated F1's driving aids of the time to no end Also, Benetton/Renault/Lotus has had worse full-time drivers than Nelsinho

Alex Yoong still critisizing F1 until today but their fans hit him back due to underperforming F1 career history and also putting a huge sum of money to enter F1 directly. Now he's focusing on local e-sports scene. When entering high-class race eg. F1 or MotoGP, national patriotic pride should be not the first thing in racer's mind. People would only proud when you're performing better not being proud just because you enter the race. Many racers from countries like Malaysia, India, Indonesia had been fallen into national pride trap.

"We will not use Fill-in drivers or drivers that didn't race-enough." (paraphrasing) Includes: - Mansell (though I can see this, 5 races in a car that didn't fit him and a team he didn't get along with, should disqualify). The car was bad too. For Mclaren, the aforementioned (below) Andretti fits the bill much more. - Capelli. 1 race, 1 DNQ. Completely goes against the rules. Why not pick Boutsen, who was outpaced consistently by Barrichello? Or how about Giorgio Pantano? - Rosset at Tyrrell, as mentioned or even Brian Henton, Julian Bailey, Olivier Grouillard or the Japanese boys; I loved Katayama, but he did nothing, same with Takagi. Really dropped the ball on this one. - Larini at Sauber? Again, 5 races, 3 finishes, one in the points and another 7th. You mention Fontana and Morbidelli, who were both considerably worse (again), Diniz did nothing and then the disastrous 2014, with Sutil and Gutierrez both doing jack-all. Larini is a true underdog of the sport and had at least some success, regardless of where he drove. - Lastly, worst of all, Baghetti? Are you for real? At least pick guys that did absolutely nothing and there's a list: - Alfonso De Portago - Cliff Allison - Jean Behra (since the, "not many races," rule doesn't apply after all) - Umberto Maglioli - Fisichella There's subjective and then there is just plain off and this list could've been MUCH better (I can also nitpick Renault, but not going to bother). And lastly, there is a laundry list of Minardi failures that were worse than Yoong (who at least scored a point), but also not going to bother.

McLaren's worst is clearly Andretti. Mansell never gave it his all when he found out how off the pace the car was.
ALCTheBlade 8 dager siden
Michael Andretti actually achieved a podium and points. The only reason Nigel Mansell's on this list is because he chose to leave the team early. Had he finished the season, Andrea de Cesaris with his 1 point during a full season, would have been the worst.

Next up: Every current F1 team's "most average driver", meaning drivers who didn't particularly stand out either negatively or positively while driving for the team. :P My picks would be: Williams: Riccardo Patrese (1987-1992) Haas: Mick Schumacher (since 2021) Alfa Romeo (Sauber/BMW Sauber): Nick Heidfeld (2001-2003 & 2006-2010) AlphaTauri (Minardi): Pierluigi Martini (1985 & 1988-1991 & 1993-1995) Ferrari: Michele Alboreto (1984-1988) Alpine (Benetton): Roberto Moreno (1990-1991) Aston Martin (Jordan): Eddie Irvine (1993-1995) McLaren: Jochen Mass (1974-1977) Red Bull (Jaguar): Pedro de la Rosa (2001-2002) Mercedes (BAR): Jacques Villeneuve (1999-2003)

For all the people complaining about Rosset not being the "worst" driver for Tyrrell, he actually had a "better" record than at least one driver, Julian Bailey who in 1988 DNQ'd 10 times (to Rossets 5) and had a highest finish of 9th (which is lower than Rossets 8th). Rosset also "beat" Tagaki in their season together (again, 8th v 9th), so logically basing it purely on results and not actual ability (as stated in the video), Rosset wouldn't be in the bottom two.

Considering that Haas' days in F1 are numbered, anyway, it'll probably stay that Mazepin will remain Haas' worst driver. 10:44 ".... but he was unhappy with his treatment as what he saw as little more than an afterthought for a team built around Villeneuve". *cough*RedBull*cough*

The Mercedes selection of Zonta when they were BAR is wrong. Turn back the clock to the year before that when they were Tyrrell and there was a driver called Riccardo Rosset and to be that bad that even his mechanics rearranged the letters on his pit scooter to spell Tosser says it all
ALCTheBlade 8 dager siden
They likely didn't consider BAR to be Tyrrell because they used a different factory, chassis builder, engine supplier, and much of Tyrrell's actual equipment was sold elsewhere.

I agree with the list. My comments. Capelli could have been the worst driver i 2 teams' history (he also had a bad run with Ferrari, but given the 70-year old story of "il cavallino" pretty hard to choose). And thank God Zonta was a Mercedes / BAR driver, or I fear we should've picked a famous German guy who anonymously spent hus last 3 years there.

For those of you wanting to see Rosset, BAR weren't really a continuation of the Tyrell team, as Craig Pollack and BAT only bought the team for their F1 entry and sold all the assets off including making the majority of the work force redundant as the 1998 season unfolded. The BAR project was taking shape well before the Tyrell purchase and it was more cost effective to buy a teams entry than apply for a completely new entry. They were effectively a completely new team ran from new head quarters with completely different personnel. If we were doing on entries alone, the current Alfa Romeo team can only trace their history back to 2010 when Sauber re-entred the sport in place of the Toyota team. Team Lotus effectively took BMW Sauber's entry. permanent

The current Aston Martin team is not the same entity as the old Jordan team. The Racing Point consortium only bought Force India's assets and championship entry, folding the old team and founding a new one with the same name and probably most of the original staff.

Picking the Ferrari one is the hardest of the hardest. I think A Merzario and I Capelli should figure. Team Enstone ( Alpine/ Renault/ Lotus/ Renault/Benetton/ Toleman), J Cecotto and R Patrese and JJ Lehto should also figure. McLaren, I am fearful of D Ricciardo joining the list!

Michael Andretti managed a podium and 7 points to Nigel Mansell's 0, which was due more to Mansell leaving the team before the season was over. Had Mansell stayed for the rest of 1995, Andrea de Cesaris, with only one point after a full season, would have been the one on this list.

@TassieLorenzo well that's exactly it. I mean he won that race in style I watched that race live. Oops once again my age is showing. Wow how time flies!!!My recollection of that race was he was untouchable. Had he been signed for Williams in '95 he probably would have been world champion. But Williams didn't want to deal with his shit and Mr. Frank figured he had the car and he could get anybody to drive it and be world championship so he had arrogance issues of his own.
