If you’re a news journalist, Formula 1 has the refreshing ability to throw the kitchen sink at you. In F1, a budding newshound can happily take his pick of the stories: right now, if you’re attuned to the sport’s political side, you’ll be writing reams about the prospect of three-car teams and the potential demise of the F1 minnow.

On 11th February 1973 the first Brazilian Grand Prix to be part of the Formula 1 World Championship was held at Interlagos. From then on it was made a permanent fixture in the racing calendar. Little did we know that one year later, the very same track would house not only McLaren’s first win from pole position, but also one of four wins to secure our first World Championship title in a season tha…

Nothing in Formula 1 stands still, and a racing car’s steering wheel is one of the most constantly changing elements in grand prix racing. Through the ages, it’s been iterated, refined and improved – and it’s been made lighter, more costly and more complex at every stage. Check out our gallery of classic McLaren F1 wheels through the ages, and get the lowdown on just what made them different, uniq…

Probably I will never find enough words to describe the trip to Sochi for Russian Grand Prix!!! It was definitely very special racing weekend for many reasons. And first of all, because it was absolutely new track for F1 and it is always exciting.

Look only to the shades, sideburns and swagger, and it becomes sometimes easy to appreciate the fact that Emerson Fittipaldi was a darn fine racing driver. 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. 
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.
At the start of the year, we dropped in on the McLaren pit garage in Bahrain to eavesdrop on proceedings during half an hour in the life of a Formula 1 test. This time, we’re back to chronicle perhaps the most fraught and frantic 30 minutes in grand prix racing – the half-hour that leads up to the start of the race.  It’s a well-practiced, procedure-driven series of events – all driven by the team…
