McLaren might not yet be talking publicly at great length about McLaren-Honda, but, believe me, there’s a lot of hard work going on behind the frosted glass interior walls at Woking to make sure the partnership gets started on the right foot. Not least, McLaren-Honda sounds like it’ll be a busy place next year – after all, if you believe what you read on the internet, they must be running about si…

Peter Prodromou has today joined McLaren Racing’s design department in the role of chief engineer. Peter, who previously worked for McLaren between 1991 and 2006, joins the team after a very successful stint at Red Bull Racing, and is a key appointment for the McLaren team as it pushes ahead with the specification and development of next year’s MP4-30 Formula 1 challenger. Peter said: “It’s fantas…
Expressions vary on Formula 1 podiums, but you can usually expect the face of the man on the top step – the winner – to demonstrate great joy.  Not so that of the driver who held this trophy aloft on October 21, 1984.

Having been to Spa before, I pretty much knew what to expect. What’s unbelievable every time though are the extremely high elevation changes around the track. TV cameras are hardly able to convey how step the run up Eau Rouge really is.

It feels as though Formula 1 has rolled through Europe and barely taken its foot off the throttle – apart from the odd new face here or there, nothing seems to have really changed. Is the 2014 season really readying itself for one last European hurrah before the start of that (increasingly lengthy) final drag that leads us to Abu Dhabi, the double-points denouement that Bernie Ecclestone so hopes …

The varied topography of Spa-Francorchamps has barely changed over the past 40 years, and, as such, it’s a track that has long sent out a singular warning: handle me with care – or I bite! By general consensus, Spa has become renowned as the sort of place that’s more suited to drivers with hair on their chests than those rather more analytical operators who coolly weigh up the obvious risks before…

So… the summer shutdown is over, and the teams’ relaxed and tanned drivers, engineers and mechanics are on their way to Spa, for this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix. I won the Belgian Grand Prix twice – in 1972 for Lotus and in 1974 for McLaren – but both races took place at the flat and featureless Nivelles circuit. I never raced in a Belgian Grand Prix at Spa, in fact, much to my regret, because m…

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow, goes the saying. When it comes to the development of McLaren, that’s certainly true. In 51 years, the company has grown from the germ of an idea in the head of an idealistic young New Zealander into an international high-technology entity whose racing credentials are known the world over.
It’s the F1 summer shutdown, and while the lights may be out in the race bays, we’re still firing on all cylinders on social media. Here’s a wrap-up of what’s been going on elsewhere on the web for McLaren. Know your noses We’ve been making F1 cars for 50 years and they’ve changed a fair bit over the last half century

If you went to the British Grand Prix, you couldn’t have avoided the sheer amount of pink on display throughout the whole weekend. Jenson Button’s #PinkForPapa campaign encouraged fans and spectators to wear pink for his home grand prix in memory of his late father, John.  To support the initiative, Team McLaren worked with Jenson to create a special pink T-shirt for fans, and announced that all p…
