2000 McLaren MP4-15 news, pictures, specifications, and information
McLaren raced the MP4/15 during the 2000 season. It was powered by a Mercedes-Benz FO110J V10 engine that was mounted at a 72-degree angle and matted to a McLaren seven-speed longitudinal semi-automatic gearbox. The chassis was constructed from a carbon-fibre monocoque and the design was by Adrian Newey. Newey has worked in both Formula One and Indycar as a race engineer, designer, technical directory, and aerodynamicist. He is considered one of the best talents in his field. His designs have won nearly 80 Grand Prix Victories. At the close of the 2001 season, Newey left McLaren and in 2005 was working for Red Bull Racing.

The car was driven by Mika Häkkinen and David Coulthard and made its racing debut at the Australian Grand Prix in 2000. It competed in 17 races and won seven times. The MP4/15 were extremely fast and scored 11 'fastest laps', but at the close of the season they were in Second Place both in the Constructors Championship and the Drivers Championship. Schumacher and the F1-2000 proved to best the faster opponent.
