Final installment of the Friday Fever Fix!
What better way to enjoy a Friday than with a little bit of F1 Fever? With the F1 summer break coming to an end, here's our final installment of McLaren-themed videos to keep your F1 addiction well fed ahead of Spa. Enjoy!
Behind the wheel for our first steps
The 1966 Monaco Grand Prix was the firest-ever race to feature a McLaren car. It also provided the backdrop for the start of John Frankenheimer’s memorable Hollywood epic, Grand Prix! This onboard footage gives you a good idea of life in the cockpit for a 1960s’ grand prix driver.
We take Murray for a ride
When you’ve got a two-seater (yes, you read that right) F1 car, you want to let people share the experience – and who better than veteran broadcaster Murray Walker, ‘the voice of Formula 1’? Murray takes you through every step of the way in this great little feature.
Mika Hakkinen – man of few words
