For a team that has raced in Formula One for more than 50 years, it comes as a big surprise that its last constructors' championship was clinched in 1998. A drivers' title with Lewis Hamilton in 2008 has been the British team's only consolation in over a barren decade interjected with several race wins and near misses along the way. Nevertheless, despite the recent setbacks, which included losing Hamilton to Mercedes, McLaren is the team drivers dream of racing with. It has attracted stars like Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and indeed Hamilton to its fold. And significantly it has been the home to legends like Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Keke Rosberg, Mika Hakkinen and the incomparable Ayrton Senna. Now under new management and Honda once again its engine supplier, McLaren is hoping to get back to the top, even though the return of the alliance did the team little good so far. McLaren will always continue to be at the helm of its game, even though the prime trophies may be missing from its exquisite cabinet at Woking in recent history. But it's a team that should never ever be discounted.For a team that has raced in Formula One for more than 50 years, it comes as a big surprise that its last constructors' championship was clinched in 1998.
