There was a poignant irony to Jenson Button’s occupation of first place for much of Friday morning’s opening practice session for the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas.
Lewis Hamilton made a promising start to this weekend’s race in the United States, topping the timesheet in FP1 on Friday, a quarter of a second ahead of Mercedes team mate and title rival Nico Rosberg.

His wasn’t the most immediate driving style to define: clever yet possessed of incredible bravery; precise yet capable of the bravest overtaking moves, Emmo nonetheless became a double world champion by virtue of his sheer completeness as a rac…
It finally came to me in the bar at Seneca Lodge, on the evening of Sunday October 6th 1974 – in other words more or less exactly 40 years ago. But, before I tell you what finally came to me that evening, and why, I want to talk a bit about a subject that matters to all of us much, much more.
A very special 40th anniversary gallery of the 1974 Formula 1 season, where Brazilian legend Emerson Fittipaldi drove home McLaren’s maiden World Championship title. Emmo, we salute you.
Forty years ago, Emerson Fittipaldi – the father of Brazilian motorsport – brought home McLaren’s first-ever world championship trophy.  As our exclusive commemorative video explains, however, when the 1972 Formula 1 world champion joined us for ’74, there were few cast-iron assurances that he’d be able to achieve another title.

McLaren chief Ron Dennis believes customer teams will never be able to win a Formula 1 championship under the current engine regulations
Is it really 30 years since Niki Lauda, Alain Prost and the McLaren-TAG MP4/2 steamrollered all opposition to clean up both the 1984 drivers’ and constructors’ championships? A quick check of my calendar suggests that, indeed, October 21 1984 was the date when McLaren, under the auspices of Ron Dennis, truly came of age. To my mind, there’s something special, pivotal, about that ’84 season.
