This year we have

someone for Hülkenberg, Hülkenberg for Perez, Perez for Hamilton, Hamilton for Schumacher.

Are the more long transfer/moving series?

At a guess, I would say 1953/54, but haven't given it much thought

Or maybe the 70's and 80's when the number of teams was at a peak. and drivers weren't locked into long term contracts the way they are now.

Please let us know the final result of your investigations.

How about in 1974:

Revson to Shadow (from McLaren)
Fittipaldi to McLaren (from Lotus)
Ickx to Lotus (from Ferrari)
Lauda to Ferrari (from BRM)
Pescarolo to BRM (from Williams)
Merzario to Williams - oops, chain loops back to Ferrari!
Ganley to March (from Williams)
Jarier to Shadow (from March)

etc., etc.

I think that HistoryFan is looking for a chain. A from Team 1 to Team 2, B from Team 2 to Team 3, C from Team 3 to Team 4 etc. (It would be nice to close the chain with Z from Team 26 to Team 1 but I don't think it ever happened.)

Well, that's what mine was meant to be :well: but the chain stopped with either Merzario or Regazzoni.

Yes that's what I'm searching for.

An example from 1996:

Johnny Herbert to Sauber from Benetton
Gerhard Berger to Benetton from Ferrari
Eddie Irvine to Ferrari from Jordan
Martin Brundle to Jordan from Ligier
Pedro Diniz to Ligier from Forti Corse
Luca Badoer to Forti Corse from Minardi
Taki Inoue to Minardi from Arrows (I accept that Inoue never raced for Minardi, but he was signed)
Ricardo Rosset to Arrows from the Super Nova F3000 team
Kenny Brack to Super Nova from Madgwick Motorsport
Pedro Couceiro to Madgwick Motorsport from ??? (my knowledge of mind 1990s Portuguese F3000 runners is not good enough to work out where Couceiro had been racing in '95).

I take it the moves have to be in chronological order as well?

If not, I kind of got a chain of 10 for 1995/96

Sauber - Benetton - Ferrari - Benetton - Ferrari -Jordan - Ligier - Forti - Minardi - Footwork
Herbert - Berger - Schumacher - Alesi - Irvine - Brundle - Diniz - Badoer - Inoue - Verstappen

Inoue had paid for the seat, then the money pulled out.

Bsc, ha-ha, great minds think alike, we both went for roughly the same chain at the same point!

Can I ask why you started this thread when you already knew the answers?

I don't know the answers.
That are just a few long transfer chains, but I'm not sure that are the longest...
