Sean Connery Motorschhh (Formerly known as Gui Racing) is a team in FF1M founded by Team Principal Gui, who is noted for his controversial remarks, team press releases, and banter with other team principals and AFIA boss Ajayrious. They ran the Gui Racing name from the 1988 to the 2011 season because Gui decided to retire the name in favour of Sean Connery Motorschhh.
Gui Racing is the most successful team in FF1M history. Up to and including the 2007 FF1M Season they have raced in 341 races (out of 352), with 5 World Championships, taking Pole Position 51 times, Winning 59 races scoring 1984 points, the most of any team in all categories. Their first race win came in the 1988 Italian Grand Prix with Nigel Mansell. They have won the Drivers Championship five times, first with Nigel Mansell in 1989, and then again with Fernando Alonso in 1995, with Damon Hill in an incredible battle with his teammate Jacques Villeneuve in 1997, with Jarno Trulli in 2000, with Cristiano da Matta in 2001 despite not having a single win, and in 1987 with the late great Ayrton Senna . They have also won the Constructors Championship five times, in 1987, 1995, 1997, 1999, and 2000 respectively. Out of 15 seasons, the team finished 2nd place six times, and 3rd place three times.
Gui Racing has been a perennial top team due to the hard work and passion of team owner Gui, a "masterful tactician" and manager with a keen eye for discovering and developing talent - such as Nico Rosberg, Ralf Schumacher (second place in 1998 and 1999, third place in 2000), Jarno Trulli (winner of season 1999 and 2000), Cristiano da Matta (winner of 2001), Lewis Hamilton, Christian Klien, and Bruno Senna. He also likes to reward his drivers with stability in the team and loyalty, something proven by how many seasons some drivers have stayed with the team, most notably Ralf Schumacher (1998-2001), coming from anonymity to title contention in his first two seasons with the team and scoring the most wins total for Gui Racing, out of all the team's drivers, with 9.
Another iconic figure within the team is Nigel Mansell , the first driver to win the Drivers Championship for Gui Racing, in 1989 despite lackluster reliability. Ayrton Senna is perhaps the main reason Gui Racing became such a powerhouse in the mid-90s. The greatest driver in FF1M history raced for the team in 1987 ,1990 , 1992 , and 1993 , finishing in 7th, 4th, and 2nd respectively. Unfortunately for the great Brazilian he gracefully accepted the ordeal of developing the weak engines that powered his cars, robbing him of deservingly better results and certainly more than his single title in 1994, his final season. Senna obtained miraculous results in his time with Gui Racing, guiding a much weaker car to higher places and leaving behind 2 powerful engines developed from the ground up by him, the Ferrari and Renault, which went on to dominate in FF1M. Gui has never made it a secret that his biggest regret was not giving Senna a car in conditions of winning a championship, with the Brazilian winning only 4 races in 3 seasons (3 coming in his last season with the team) and then being signed by rivals AquinoPlus for the fateful 1994 Season. From that point on Gui has made a point of carefully planning out the developmental process of his cars and testing, a lesson of will, dedication, and determination that is reflected on the longest streak of success any team has seen in FF1M history.
Such fatidic mishap with Ayrton Senna was rectified when the retroactive 1987 season took place, and Gui Cramer finally realized his dream of having his team field his hero for his last time in FF1M, but with a fast car. Throughout the season, Ayrton Senna had a fierce battle with Alain Prost as Prost's consistency and reliability - plus the occasional win - allowed him to lead the championship for the first 9 of the 10 races. Senna was plagued with retirement, with 5 DNFs in 10 races. On the last race, Prost had a 4 point advantage and Senna needed a very fortunate combination of results to win the title. The race was a thrilling one as Senna had the lead early on but Prost could not finish 2nd. Fortunately for the Brazilians at Gui Racing, Prost had only his second retirement of the season. The championship wasn't decided yet as Senna had to finish, an event that seemed less likely given his DNF % ration until then (55%). However, it was meant to be. With fate on his side Senna seized the win as with divine rights to the championship, leaving FF1M regulars with teary eyes and lumpy throats. The Brazilian's last farewell could not have been sweeter, a commanding championship challenge with wins in every race he finished and the sweet sigh of relief and redemption for Gui Cramer. His idol, Ayrton Senna, gave Gui the most special gift possible and left our series on the highest of highs, and a brilliant legacy that shall forever be admired.

Cristiano da Matta was also discovered by Gui, however he finished 2nd in his debut FF2M season and earned a test spot in FF1M. In the 2001 season he willfully won the FF1M championship despite the car lacking in speed.
