Is it Luca Baldisiri(sp?) for the Ferrari years, and David Brown for some of the early Williams wins?

I thought Christian Silk was the Race Engineer for MS when he was at Benetton?

1996 Damon Hill Williams: Les Jones

I think that this one is wrong. I'm sure that Les Jones was chief mech in 1996 - Tim Preston was probably DH's race engineer.

Of course, wouldn't want to forget 2006 already. :lol:

Interesting, the only names that won with different combination of driver / team / race engineer are...
  • Drivers: Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.
  • Teams: McLaren and Williams.
  • Race engineers: David Brown and James Robinson.
Is this representative of anything? The drivers listed here have already been acknowledged as some of the all-time masters, so that fits, but the teams should include Ferrari by rights. As for race engineers... does anybody know?

In relation to race engineers I don't think it really shows anything because usually race engineers will stay with a team much longer than a driver will. The best engineers will be kept by their team at almost any cost, and many of them progress to more senior roles, only spending a short time as race engineers.

I think winning with different teams is a positive reflection on the driver and team, but not necessarily the race engineer.

Im pretty sure Murray wasn't Senna's engineer in 88. As pointed out by turin, he was chief designer / technical director (not sure the exact title) but almost certainly not race engineer.
