“How the mighty fall.”

published 12/06/2001

Great cars. Great drivers.

Lost enthusiasm.

For the past few years McLaren have dominated Formula 1 racing, but this is now all starting to change and when you were the best there is only one way to go and that is down. For a Formula 1 team to be successful it needs more than just great drivers and great cars, it needs that extra spark...

Good way to sell your team

A bit O.T.T. normally.

Every year, Formula 1 teams try to go one bigger and one better than their rivals and certainly better than the year before. This is not restricted to their track performance. They also do it at their launch parties. This year however, the parties were somewhat subdued by normal standards. Here...

“The Jewel in the Crown”

published 01/02/2001

Appreciate their fans.

Ferrari don't appreciate their fans.

This year’s Autosport International show at the Birmingham NEC (13-14 Jan), was as ever a great experience for every motorsport fan. Not only to see some of the drivers from the sports but the opportunity as a huge Formula 1 obsessive to view a makeshift F1 pitlane. Jordan, Jaguar, Sauber...

While I am first and foremost a Ferrari fan, you have to tip your hat to the performance that Mclaren have produced over the past few seasons. While Hakkinen and Coulthard are quality drivers, they have the huge advantage of knowing that they start every weekend with the best machinery under them...

Some reliability problems this season

McLaren the British-based Formula I team are one of the most successful motor racing teams in history. Formed in the late 1960's this team has won numerous grand prixs and are currently with Ferrari the best tean in Formula I racing. They are a well funded team and have arguably the best driver...

“CHEATERS - PERHAPS”

published 18/07/2000

???

???

I really think that the bosses of F1 should look into the the ruiles and regulations of Formula one. I think for so many years team have been pushoing the rules to the limits and eventually someone will go too far. When someone does break the riles it seems as though they can get away with it. So...

Good

Continuously at the top, winners there is no doubt

Show no passion for the sport, moan about anything...

As much as admire McLaren for their success over the years it has to be said that they really are one of the most boring teams around. They seem to show no passion and Ron Dennis almost always appears to have something to moan about unless he is winning. Can he not just accept defeat and try to...

McLaren boss Ron Dennis has always offered the majority of his support for Mika Hakkinen a.k.a The Flying Fin, but in this season (2001) Mika hasn't been performing to his usual standard. But it isn't just the 2 time World Champion's fault, the McLaren car has failed him several times, including...

“The best”

published 09/09/2000

in my eyes,this is undoubtly the best teami n formula one at the moment.They seem to have everything right in all departments. They have been transformed from also rans to title dominators in just 3 or 4 seasons and look to dominate the formula 1 crowns for a few more years.realiability was a...

“2 V.good cars”

published 05/08/2000

good car

not sure

Pesonally i'm not much of an F1 fan, but ocasionally I do watch a few Grand Prix's and when I do I always support the Mclaren team. Not because I like the two drivers, but because I like the car... It looks magnificent, it's got real horse power, it's realiable and it's fast... Even though I do...

Great car, Adrian Newey, Ron Dennis, everything

Drivers - why do they not come home 1-2 every time...

McLaren have the best car this season (2000) and have had for the past two years. They are English but sadly they do not have the Tifosi as Ferrari have got or the master tactition, Ross Brawn. However, the brilliance of McLaren does bring the drivers into question. Every other F1 car in...

if you join late your combination of driver/teams ...

This is regarding fantasy f1. Fantasy F1 has been around a long time now and I have always found that magazine-run competitions are just too laborious and complicated to enter, but last season I discovered a free and simple online way to compete. FantasyF1racing.com is a free fantasy formula 1...

“2001 Challenger”

published 09/02/2001

Cool Car

Numbers 3 and 4 on race cars

McLaren have once again produced a beauty of a car for the forthcoming season!! Launched on the 7th February, it was one of the latter launches eclipsing many others notably Ferrari. Unveiled by team mates Hakkinen, Coulthard and Wurz, it boasts the same attractive colour scheme merging the...

“yours for the taking”

published 10/08/2000

They can be quick

Con be unreliable

Ferarri are being plagued by the unusual gremlins that normally live in early season Maclaren cars. Now is the chance for Mika or David to shine before the red cars fix their problems. I dont know what everyone else thinks but 4 years after ditching the Red and White Marlboro colours, I still...

“McLaren-Speed Up”

published 27/10/2001

Fuel effiency-Very good

Speed not up to touch, could do better

Mclaren have been dominating the recent F1 seasons though went downhill this season. Their beautiful black and silver aerodynamisised 200mph vehicles were no match for their opponents- the red stallions the one and only Ferrari. This season Ferrari have been on top form the season and they...
