Six out of 2019's ten F1 teams are based in England. The one headed and partly owned by Toto Wolff started out in 1970 as Tyrrell, only to became BAR and then Honda. When the Japanese giant finally decided to cut its losses, Ross Brawn, Honda's Team Principal, bought the team and paired Honda's brilliant 2009 chassis with Mercedes power, winning the championship in its first, and only, season. That's when Daimler stepped in with the big money. Today, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is a five-time F1 World Constructor's champion, with a team of 1450 people working towards a sixth title.
