2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Bruce McLaren Motor Racing, better known to you and me as McLaren. The team has enjoyed considerable success over the years, claiming twelve drivers’ championships, eight constructors’ titles, 182 race victories and a wealth of Formula One legends including Emerson Fittipaldi, Niki Lauda, James Hunt, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and Lewis Hamilton.
As part of the team’s celebrations, all fifty years have been squeezed into a three-minute video entitled “The Spirit of McLaren.” If you had any doubts about the legacy of this incredible team, this video will undoubtedly cause a re-think.
