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.

McLaren chief Ron Dennis believes customer teams will never be able to win a Formula 1 championship under the current engine regulations
