In 1957, Ecclestone arrived in Formula 1. He bought Team Connaught, whose Welsh driver Stuart Lewis-Evans (1930-1958) he managed at the time. When he died a little later on the road for the Vanwall racing team as a result of a serious accident at the Grand Prix of Morocco, Ecclestone turned his back on the sport.

It was not until the 1960s that he finally made his way into Formula 1, first as manager of Jochen Rindt (1942-1970), then as co-owner of his Lotus team. After Rindt also lost his life on the track, Ecclestone withdrew again, but then surprisingly bought the Brabham team in 1971.
