McLaren-Honda, act one


The debut of the McLaren MP4-30 was not a smooth one at Jerez this week as the team hit numerous issues throughout testing. 27 years ago, the MP4/4 just made it in time to the final test at Imola ahead of the first race of the season in Brazil. The lap times were immediately impressive, the Honda engine proved sensational and the red and white McLarens dominated the season.
