BAR is a constructor that competes in the Formula One career.

Competition historyEdit

1999Edit

BAR had a good début to their first season in Formula One. Scoring points at the second race by William Néron, their best result was a 2nd place at France. They finished 9th in the Constructors' Championship with 15 points.

2000Edit

BAR had a poor season in 2000. As Néron took pole position for the fourth race at Silverstone, he retired with a leak in the oil of his car. The car only scored 3 points finishes, as the two ones were podiums. After the Austrian Grand Prix they were both replaced by Donald Brugman and Takuma Ishikawa. Both Brugman and Ishikawa did not scored points to the team, and the team finished last with 12 points.

2001Edit

With Brugman moving to Arrows, BAR signed Dane Andy Black who left from Arrows to join the team, aprtnering with Takuma Ishikawa. The team suffered mechanical failures during the season, but the car was reliable and competitive. Decent podiums were scored throughout the season: a 2nd place from Ishikawa at Spain and a 3rd place from Black at Canada. Four further competitive races came in the second half of the season. Ishikawa finished 4th at Germany and Black finished 3 consecutive races in the points; a 5th place at Hungary and Belgium and a 4th place at Italy. They finished 6th in the Constructors' Championship with 22 points, their best result ever to date.

2002Edit

Both drivers Black and Ishikawa were retained for the 2002 season. In the first half of the season, BAR was not much competitive compared to the other teams, often finishing outside the Top 10. Takuma Ishikawa dropped out from BAR and was replaced by rookie Jack Laskey. In the second half of the season, the BAR showed massive improvement, with Andy Black taking 18 more points to BAR and would eventually out-pace Laskey for 5 of the 8 races which he finished in the points. The team secured a double points finish at the season-ending 2002 Japanese Grand Prix.

BAR finished their 2002 season in 6th, with 24 points, 2 more than last season's points tally.

2003Edit

Both Black and Laskey, the two previous drivers of the season, would be replaced by Pablo Diehl and Márk Lintner.
