On-track Achievements

In the team’s debut year, team founder and driver, Bruce McLaren scored points in the team’s third race and the championship’s fourth race. He ended up sixth in the team’s home race at Brands Hatch. He bagged the team’s maiden win, two years later at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The first constructor’s championship was claimed by Brazilian driver Emerson Fittipaldi, Denny Hulme, Mike Hailwood, David Hobbs and Jochen Mass in 1974. This was followed by Niki Lauda and Alain Prost winning in 1984 and 1985. In 1988 and 1989, it was the partnership of Prost and Ayrton Senna that brought the constructor’s championship home.

Then Senna and Gerhard Berger took the constructors title in 1990 and 1991. In 1998, it was David Coulthard and Mika Hakkinen’s turn to win. It would be the McLaren F1 team’s last constructor’s title.
