1976 - 1996


Born out of the ashes of the Matra team, their win at the '77 Swedish GP with Jacques Laffite was the first all French victory in F1. All of Laffite's 6 wins were in Ligiers. It was also the car under Olivier Panis in his solo win at Monaco in 1996. 1979 was the make's most successful year with three wins taking it to third in the championship. A fairly long history of pretty well resourced seasons and good corporate backing did not yield the expected world title. The team was eventually sold to Alain Prost in '97. It was finally wound up in 2000.
