The Ford Motor Company is a US based multinational automobile maker. Ford is notable for its motorsport ventures, in Formula One it had significant impact in sponsering the Cosworth engine suppliers beginning in 1966 and ending in 2004. The Ford sponsored Cosworth DFV became one of the most successful engines in the history of Formula One, following the engine's birth it supplied nearly all the Formula One team's bar the major constructor's from the end of the 1960s until the early 1980s.

The Ford-Cosworth era came to an end in the mid-1980s when Turbo powered cars proved to be a more successful option over the normally aspirated Cosworth engines. Ford-Cosworth would return to prominence in 1989 when turbo engines were banned in Formula One, supplying many of the Formula One teams. Its power began to dwindle once again in the mid-1990s as more engine suppliers began entering the Formula One grid.

In 2000, Ford entered the grid as a team for the first time when it raced in Formula One under the guise of its subsidary company Jaguar, following Ford's purchase of the Stewart team. The Ford-owned Jaguar team competed until 2004, when after 38 years in Formula One, the automobile giant opted to withdraw its Formula One activities.

Cosworth continued as an engine supplier in Formula One, however it no longer received the backing from Ford.
