Mclaren Group

The best from Paris Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive.

As fashion houses adorned models in their spring-summer collections at Paris Fashion Week, elsewhere in the city carmakers were taking the wraps off theirs. And one of the most talked about models was not on the catwalk, but in McLaren's space at the Paris Motor Show.

Hong Kong's motoring elite is braced for the arrival of the McLaren MP4-12C, the most eagerly awaited new sports car of the year. At HK$3.95 million, this carbon-fibre miracle of Formula One engineering does 0-100km/h in three seconds and has a top speed of over 320km/h.

Button and Hamilton give seal of approval

McLaren drivers and Formula One world champions Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton test drove the new car in Britain earlier this year.

Pit Stop

Here we are again, on the cusp of a new Formula One season, and the only real question to be answered is: can it possibly beat last year? Last year was the year of fines and feuds. It was certainly the most dramatic season for a long time and, however traumatic it might have been for McLaren, it was great for the profile of the sport.

Sucking up the pressure

Of all the battles McLaren have had to fight this season, there is none they are prouder of than the success they had in sticking to their task as all swirled around them.

This column often tries to tackle subjects in Formula One that don't always hit the headlines but are important all the same. Forget that this week; there's only one thing to talk about, and that's the soap opera that is Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton.

Pit Stop

Let's be honest. There have been times in the recent past when Formula One has been, well, boring. There you go, I've said it now, and frankly I feel better for having got it off my chest. Moments when the cars seemed to run on rails, and we all knew who was going to win (normally a bloke called Schumacher). Even a faintly interesting moment had to be savoured.

Question: when are team orders not team orders? When it's called 'team strategy'. That's what McLaren called their decision to tell their drivers to back off and not fight each other for the lead at Monaco a fortnight ago. It seems McLaren, and Ron Dennis in particular, have very short memories.

F1 teams pass logistical test with flying colours

For most people reading this, the Chinese Grand Prix is a home grand prix, a source of great pride for the Chinese themselves and great happiness for those lucky enough to have a ticket.

Team profiles: McLAREN

McLaren is one of the most potent names in F1, rivalling Ferrari in the pantheon of motorsport gods. They took their first world title with Emerson Fittipaldi in 1974, then 1976 witnessed the series of amazing battles between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, with McLaren's Hunt winning by just a point, while Lauda had a terrible crash.
