10-greatest race teams of all-time

As a new season of motorsports around the world approaches, two teams might be on the verge of accomplishing greatness.

In Sprint Cup, Hendrick Motorsports has somehow made itself even stronger for the coming season, adding four-time Sprint Cup runner-up Mark Martin to its powerhouse stable. The team boasts the driver voted most popular in the sport, Dale Earnhardt Jr., along with three-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson and four-time champion Jeff Gordon. All four drivers making the Chase next season is certainly possible, if not probable.

In the world of IndyCar, the past two champions join forces at Target Chip Ganassi Racing. Dario Franchitti won the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar Series title in 2007, and then bolted for Sprint Cup. He's back, and paired with last year's Indianapolis 500 and title winner, Scott Dixon. The two have combined for 24 IndyCar wins and 114 top-10 finishes.

But are these two of the greatest teams ever assembled in motorsports? We seek the answer to that by looking at the top 10 greatest multi-car teams in the history of motorsports. Keep in mind these teams must have had at least two cars that competed for the full season or race.

1. 1988 McLaren-Honda: Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna (F1)

Ayrton Senna, right, and Alain Prost dominated Formula One in 1988 like no one before or since.

In their first season together, Prost and Senna combined to win 15 of the 16 races, providing a balanced attack in the process (Senna won eight races, Prost seven). Senna's one additional victory proved to be the difference, as he edged out Prost 90 points to 87.

The next-highest points total? Gerhard Berger, with 41 points. Not only was this the most dominant multi-car team in any single season of motorsports, but it sparked one of the best Formula 1 rivalries of all time over the course of the next half-decade before Senna tragically died at Imola in 1994.
