F1 swap shop – 2008-2015S

Rumour has it Ross Brawn is headed to McLaren to serve as team principal under the returning Ron Dennis. If that happens, then the Brackley and Woking teams will have done a total swap of their engine supplier, lead driver and technical director in seven years:

2008:
McLaren: Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, Paddy Lowe
Brackley: Honda, Jenson Button, Ross Brawn

2015:
McLaren: Honda, Jenson Button, Ross Brawn
Brackley: Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton, Paddy Lowe

In 2008, Lowe and co. won the championship, while Brawn and the gang put in one of the worst performances by a works team in grand prix history. My money's on Mercedes coming out on top in 2015.

Formula 1: completely mad.
