The factory team hayday lasted quite long in F1 and some boardrooms seemed quite patient with expectations and results... and even when it ended, a bad economic situation played a big role.

ps. One thing I just realized: despite the many pullouts in F1, only one of them reduced the grid size, and it's the only one that was built in-house from scratch (Toyota).
