Welcome to a new section on F1 Rejects! Here you'll find the most extensive profiles of these Formula One teams ANYWHERE! Each page includes statistics, heaps of pictures and the stories behind F1's least successful teams...
All a former Formula One team needs to have done to get a page on this site is ...
• to have attempted to qualify at at least 2 Grands Prix and
• to have scored 6 points or fewer under pre-2003 points systems
How hard can that be? Very!
CURRENTLY WORKING ON:

We are in the process of working on several projects - stay tuned for news of what our next profile will be!

Our Definition of a "Team"
The history of teams, constructors and privateer entrants in F1 is a long, complicated and very interesting one. But for the purposes of this website, we've had to make certain decisions as to what we will consider a "team" eligible for a profile here, and what we won't. With this in mind, we present the following four guidelines...
• includes teams attempting to enter F1 as a constructor
• includes privateer teams entering F1 in partnership with a chassis-maker

• does not include privateer teams utilising customer chassis
• does not include constructors supplying customer chassis to teams
Of course, these are just guidelines, and we reserve the right to do whatever the heck we want, and profile whomever and whatever we want! But we'll try to stick to the above.
