Jordan Grand Prix were an Irish-registered Formula One constructor that competed in 250 races between 1991 and 2005, taking four wins.
Founded by Eddie Jordan, initially as a Formula Three team in the 1980s, the team achieved a moderate amount of success with an average budget. After taking their first victory, a one-two, at the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix, Jordan had their strongest season in 1999, coming third in both Championships, and taking two wins courtesy of Heinz-Harald Frentzen. However, the team never reaches such heights again and went into decline, coming second-last in 2003 despite Giancarlo Fisichella surprisingly taking victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix. In 2005, they were taken over by Midland Group, becoming Midland F1 Racing in 2006. Midland were sold to Spyker towards the end of 2006, and the team became Spyker in 2007. Spyker sold the team at the end of 2007, and the team became Force India, in which form it remains today.
The team was known for its humourous, fun-loving nature. This even applied to sponsorship in countries where tobacco sponsorship was banned. The yellow colour came from Benson & Hedges, and tobacco sponsorship laws turned these words into "Bitten & Hisses" in 1997, "Buzzing Hornets" from 1998 to 2000, "Bitten Heroes" in 2001, and "BE ON EDGE" from 2002 onwards.
