When you consider the names of Formula One teams that are not in Formula One anymore, the entry list has a few glaring omissions. Lotus really should be one of them but Formula One is missing the name of one of its great teams and one of its great champions. Brabham's history can be split into three sections. The first was the time of the man himself, Sir Jack. They won a couple of titles in the mid-60s, with Sir Jack the only man to win a World Title with his own team, and it seems unlikely that will ever be repeated. Denny Hulme is the only man to literally beat his boss to the world title in 1967, and unsatisfied he moved to McLaren to try again! The second is Bernie's Brabham, which had run Niki Lauda up to his retirement but is better remembered for Nelson Piquet's successes in 1981 and 1983 alongside a succession of drivers of inconsiderable talent. Bernie, however, was off to the bunker and retired the team for 1988. The years after Brabham's return make unpleasant reading for its fans, and is much better detailed in this article: http://www.f1rejects.com/centrale/submitted/brabham/index.html But lets hope the name is not returned to embarrass itself!
