McLaren F1 Team History

McLaren F1 Team information & statistics

Alain Prost wins 1984 Monaco F1 GP in McLaren MP4-2

McLaren are one of the oldest and most successful teams in Formula One. Since their debut back in 1966, the team has gone on to win eight Constructors Championships, and 12 Drivers Championships and has seen some of the sport’s greatest names at the wheel of their cars. Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Nikki Lauda and Mika Hakkinen are to name a few.

Founded by New Zealand driver Bruce McLaren back in 1963, the team had to wait a further three years for its debut, at Monte-Carlo. After two years of little success as the team’s only driver, Bruce was joined by fellow Kiwi Denny Hulme in 1968. They won three races that season, with Bruce claiming their maiden victory at Spa.

After the founder’s death in 1970 their progress was halted but after four years of rebuilding they finally claimed their first world championship, courtesy of Emmerson Fittipaldi. The team were tipped to join the era’s front runners, especially when Britain’s James Hunt won one of the tightest championship seasons ever in 1976, holding off Niki Lauda’s Ferrari.

However a run of uncompetitive years left McLaren scrapping far down the grid, an average team. Before a decade of success came to define the team as an all-time great. Seven championships in eight years through the mid-80’s to early 90-s was arguably as dominant as any team has ever been in possibly F1’s greatest era.

Teammates Senna & Prost worst moment in Japan 1989

Lauda held off team mate Prost to claim the 1984 F1 championship by half a point before the meticulous Prost went on the win in both 1985 and 1986. After Lauda moved on, Prost was joined by the up and coming Ayrton Senna, the team were so dominant that the pair won 15 of 16 races that season. Senna won a very tight maiden championship.

In 89 the relationship between Prost and Senna soured further when the pair clashed in Japan, Prost won the title in another McLaren dominant year. After the Professor left to join Ferrari, Senna had a free reign and won back to back titles in 90 and 91.

There has been further success for Hakkinen and Lewis Hamilton but despite remaining competitive, three championships in 21 years are not what McLaren expected since their dominant decade. They remain title contenders but with the financial backing of other teams, their task to return to the front is harder than ever.
