With Adrian Sutil joining Force India again for 2013 we have the situation, that the two team mates from 2011 are meeting each other again.
So there's a question that came to my mind...

When was the last time that two team mates were driving against each other later again?
It would be interesting if it would be in another team. Any ideas?
And would the losing driver from first time turn the game around later...?

Btw. I don't search for answers like Kobayashi and Perez were driving in 2011, then Pedro de la Rosa came to Sauber for a one-off...and then Kobayashi and Perez were meeting again :lol:

Berger and Alesi is the one that comes to mind albeit a little different.. both buggered off to a different team at the same time! :D

Also Sutil and PDR are not the only pair of team-mate that are reunited in F1 this year, there's another 2! Hamilton and Rosberg; and van der Garde and Pic.;) Former team-mates in karting and GP2 respectively.

The first ones that spring to mind for me are Watson and Lauda - teammates at Brabham in the late 70s (1978 I think) and again at McLaren in 1982-3

If we look across different series, then also Senna and Chandhok. 2008 iSport in GP2, 2010 F1 HRT.

Piquet was never at williams with Patrese.

Ignore that, they were for one race.

I guess you could also add Fisichella and Alonso from 05/06 Renault to Ferrari '10.

Slightly different note; Schumacher and Barrichello where teammates six seasons. Any pair who where teammates longer?
*Oke just checked - Coulthard and Hakkinnen as well.

The closest I can think of from the top of my head are:

Alesi & Berger: 93, 94, 95 at Ferrari, 96, 97 at Benneton.

Webber & Vettel: 09, 10, 11, 12, and (presumably) 13 at Red Bull.

Webber and Pizzonia Jaguar / Williams. Must have been a nightmare for Pizzonia, even if he was only Williams test driver, after being outpsyched, outraced and kicked out at Jaguar...

Yup, was it the 45? I seem to remember the 96 car being 43. Do you know why they always skipped even numbers, and why it was called JS?

The JS was a reference to Jo Schlesser, who was a close friend of Ligier. (Probably most famous for his fiery death at France 1968)

Yup, JS stands for Jo Schlesser. Can't remember why they skipped even numbers although I think their microcars might have all had even numbers. Maybe it was odd numbers for racing cars and even numbers for road cars?

Brundle and Blundell also teamed up for the Daytona 24 in 2011 in a Daytona Prototype, interestingly enough.

Edit: I see someone else already caught this.

I always thought it was cool how Nelson Piquet and Roberto Moreno ended up F1 teammates after being Karting teammates as kids.

2005-06 Ex-Mclaren boys Montoya & Raikkonen meeting again @ Nascar 2012....

(though not as teammates, but this meeting was one of the most unlikely, and was made possible due to long chain of events/circumstances for both drivers over the years.)

In testing roles, also Wurz and Nakajima at Williams in F1 and later raced together in Le Mans i think.

I think Heidfeld and Webber where both part of the Mercedes-Benz CLR team in the 1999 Le Mans, and became teammates again at Williams in 2005.

Carlos Sainz and Nasser Al-Attiyah were team-mates in Volkswagen Dakar team 2010-2011 and they met again this year in Quatar Red Bull Team.

Which is interesting since they fought very, very hard at Volkswagen and it looked to me they ended very angry at each other.

Nope. They both ran the Merc - not the same. So, teammates, but not in the same way really. If you get what I mean? :p
