Ensign was a Formula One constructor from Britain. They participated in 133 grands prix, entering a total of 155 cars. Ensign scored 19 championship points and no podium finishes. The best result was a 4th place at the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix by Marc Surer, who also took fastest lap of the race.

Ensign was founded by Morris Nunn who also carried out design duties during the first two seasons of the team's existence. Nunn would later go on to be a prominent chief engineer in the American-based Champ Car series, winning championships with drivers Alex Zanardi and Juan Pablo Montoya in the late 1990s.

WHATS THERE NOW..

Mo Nunns house, is still there at 19 Holly Lane, Great Wyrley where he designed and manufactured his

first Formula1™ Car, before moving the Ensign team to their factory at what is now Queens industrial estate, Chasetown - in what is now an unassuming industrial estate in the middle of Chasetown housing estate.

Very little remains of the former F1 team, with little or no mention of the team locally
