General Motors

I think I know the answer to this, but have any GM brands ever competed in Formula 1?

Was Lamborghini under Chrysler control during its ill-fated entry? (Iím thinking the Big Three: obviously Ford went in hard with the DFV and beyond.)

No, Chrysler were never part of GM. Big Three: GM, Ford, Chrysler (later DaimlerChrysler).

According to a search on the interwebs: Nope. GM has never done anything in the realm of F1

The isuzu v12 engine that Lotus tried in '91. Don't think GM owned isuzu at the time?

Wasn't Lotus owned by GM around the time of the Isuzu project?

Isuzu might have been, not sure about Lotus. But certainly what weíre saying is that GM has never had any *major* involvement in F1.

Youíre probably thinking of the Opel/Vauxhall Lotus series that ran in the 90s.

I canít think of any GM brands in F1 either
