Company presidents breaking TV sets and resolved ‘spygate’ controversies notwithstanding, we do expect the rivalry between Formula 1’s top two giants to continue for as long as they’re at the top. The competition between McLaren and Ferrari happens to be long and colourful, spanning at least three decades.
During the 1976 Spanish Grand Prix, McLaren’s James Hunt finished first, but McLaren was disqualified on a technicality, and the victory was awarded to Ferrari’s Niki Lauda, who finished second. This set the tone for the two camps’ relationship over the next thirty years.
We’re quite sure history will continue to repeat itself.
