If you’ve only got recent knowledge of Formula 1 – and specifically the McLaren team – you’ll know them as the papaya-coloured race cars driven by Oscar Piastri and Lando Norris. You may also remember Daniel Ricciardo’s shock victory in the 2021 Italian Grand Prix – their first visit to the top step in almost a decade.

If you’ve followed F1 a little longer, your memory bank could include their most recent World Championship victory with Lewis Hamilton in 2008, when they raced in chrome colours – and perhaps Mika Hakkinen’s two titles after he defeated Ferrari’s Michael Schumacher, or one of the sport’s most famous team mate rivalries featuring greats Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.
