The trick car that ended McLaren's 90s win drought
Oct 27, 2018, 1:36 PM

Back in the late 1990s, struggling McLaren were looking for new inspiration with this harbinger of new Formula 1 hope, says Damien Smith.

The dry patch lasted three full seasons and 49 races. At the time, it seemed inconceivable that McLaren - the superpower with which first Niki Lauda, then emphatically Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, bestrode Formula 1 - should have fallen so low.

Today, after a win drought that is now well over double the length and shows absolutely no sign of being quenched, the mid-1990s seem just a blip. Perspectives have changed.
