Fifty Years of McLaren
With 2013 marking half a century since Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Ltd was founded, GP International celebrates 50 years of one of Formula 1’s marquee teams with a very special issue dedicated to exploring the men, women, drivers and cars that have contributed to the Woking team’s 182 grand prix victories, eight Constructors’ Championships and 12 Drivers’ Championships.

Prost vs Senna
It all started with an astonishing 15 victories from 16 Grands Prix in 1988. The most dominating driver partnership of all time also became the most famous rivalry in the history of Formula 1. Alan Henry gives an inside look at the explosive two seasons that Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost spent together at McLaren in 1988 and ‘89.

The genius of Bruce McLaren
The young Kiwi responsible for the formation of one of Formula 1’s most successful teams began his enterprise in a garage on an industrial estate in New Malden. GP International meets the men and women who were part of the team from the very beginning and discover what it was like to work (and drink) with the late Bruce McLaren.

The Lewis Hamilton era
Unfulfilled potential? After six seasons and 110 grands prix together, do 21 wins and one Drivers’ Championship mean that the Hamilton-McLaren partnership will be remembered as a success or a failure? Tony Dodgins analyses the highs and lows of a critical era of McLaren history.

John Barnard
McLaren’s MP4 chassis concept was responsible for triggering the carbon fibre revolution in Formula 1 that changed the future of the sport forever. Alan Henry talks with legendary designer John Barnard about how he helped to make McLaren the technical pioneers of the pit lane.

Driving Caterham’s new F1 simulator
Ever wondered what it would be like to test your driving skills on an authentic Formula 1 simulator? GP International gets acquainted with Caterham’s impressive new driver simulator and discovers that pushing the limits of a Formula 1 car is much harder than it looks…
