If you want to go further back, the team's history goes back to Stewart F1, operated by former WDC, Sir Jackie Stewart. The team even won a race with Johnny Herbert. Once Ford ran it as the Jaguar team, things took a rapid down turn. I always liked the Jag livery, particularly the Oceans Twelve livery with the diamonds in the nose cone, but those cars were dogs. It wasn't until Newey came to Red Bull that the magic happened.
