McLaren Promo Video Fail “Our heroes, past and present – Button, Hamilton and Senna’s MP4-4”

I’ll start with the positives.

This promo video is a great insight into Mclarens winning pedigree, it shows Jenson and Lewis going through loads of championship winning cars. In this picture below you can see the following Mclaren Cars from back to front MP4/4 MP4/5 MP4/5b MP4/6.

Row of Mclarens

All of these are F1 championship winning cars, all driven by Senna.

You also get to see how much more involvement the driver had in driving the car like manual stick shift gears and limited options on the steering wheel.

If you watch the video you’ll see how excited both Mclaren Drivers are to be looking round the old cars and comparing them to todays F1 car the MP4 25.

around 23 seconds in its nice to see more recent cars in the silver / chrome livery

The only thing that lets everything down is why isn’t it streamed or recorded in HD come on. Why oh why does such a big name like Mclaren ruin a great Promo vid by not recording it in HD.

  1. Hi Rory,

    I think it’s a bit disingenuous to say that the video is ruined purely because it was filmed in HD! In fact, I think it gives a spuerb insight not only into how and why the drivers revere the machinary as such, but also as to just how far McLaren go to protect the MP4/4 – respecting it to such a degree that it’s virtually never driven (certainly, only one chassis ever is – the other four owned by McLaren Racing Limited are not) and is looked after incredibly well.
