This occurred to me as I was sitting down with a cuppa and a biscuit. Consider the career of Gerhard Berger...


BMW-backed driver placed at ATS...
off to Benetton....
move to Ferrari....
on to McLaren....
back to Ferrari.....
then back to Benetton.....
and finally a non-driving position with BMW.

All very symmetrical isn't it? Anyone else suggest a driver whose career displays a similar sort of structure....?

Jacques Laffite in Formula One: From Williams to Ligier to Williams to Ligier.

[although, strictly speaking, the two English teams were not the same]

Berger's first and last wins were also Benetton's first and last win... In 11 years time. It's kinda strange, considering he only won two races for Benetton... :smoking:
