1997 Stewart SF1 Magnussen

Stewart Grand Prix was founded by triple Formula One champion Jackie Stewart and his son Paul Stewart in 1996 when Jackie Stewart secured a five-year development deal with Ford to make it a factory team. The first car, SF01 , was designed by Alan Jenkins for the 1997 F1 season. It was powered by Ford Zetec-R 72-degree V10 engine and proved to be quite competitive but very unreliable. Team drivers Rubens Barichello and Jan Magnussen were only classified eight times out of 34 starts. The only time when both cars reached the finish was at Monaco Grand Prix where Barichello took impressive 2nd place and Magnussen finished 7th.
