Profile

The briefest of F1 appearances, Mastercard Lola made its debut at the 1997 Australian Grand Prix, failed to qualify and then disappeared. It had been intended to debut in 1998 but commercial pressures forced team principal Eric Broadley's hand. The car's chassis never saw a wind tunnel or much on-track testing, and the intended engine never appeared. At least the team had two drivers - Vincenzo Sospiri and Ricardo Rosset - but the cars were a distant last on the timesheets. Broadley subsequently withdrew the team from the Brazilian Grand Prix due to "financial and technical problems". A few weeks later the company went into receivership with debts of over £6 million.
