It occurred to me the other day that Stirling Moss provided Vanwall - Aintree 1957 (with Brooks), Cooper - Buenos Aires 1958 and Lotus - Monaco 1960, with their first Championship Grand Prix wins.

In addition, he gained Ferguson's first (and only) Formula One win at Oulton Park in 1961.

Has anyone else introduced so many F-1 marques to the chequered flag?

As an aside, I was interested to note, too, that his 1956 Monaco win on the Maserati 250F was only the fourth time that marque had finished first in a championship Grand Prix, Fangio having gained the other three wins.

Dan Gurney and Jackie Stewart also gave three marques their first wins.
Gurney won with Porsche, Brabham and Eagle.
Stewart won with Matra, March and Tyrrell.

Berger gave Bennetton its first (and last) win, as well as being the first to end Ferrari's longest losing streak (twice!). Does that count?

Jody Scheckter took the first GP win for Wolf Racing (on their first GP ever!) and won the first (and only ?) race for a 6 wheeler.
