Merzario

Merzario

Merzario was a Formula One constructor from Italy. They participated in 31 grands prix, entering a total of 32 cars.

The team was set up by former Ferrari, Williams and March driver Arturo Merzario when he could no longer find a drive with an established team. He started out with a car based largely on his March 761, with crude bodywork vaguely reminiscent of a Ferrari 312T2 in its use of cockpit-side ducting for an air intake. This was later modified by Simon Hadfield into a ground effect 'wing' car.

Merzario later purchased the assets of the Kauhsen team (and their driver Gianfranco Brancatelli), arguably taking on cars even worse than his old March-based vehicle.

When Merzario's money ran out he stepped back to constructing Formula Two cars but was keen to point out that the engine bay of his F2s could easily be modified to take a Cosworth DFV F1 engine.
