2001 McLaren MP4-16 news, pictures, specifications, and information
The McLaren MP4/16 was raced during the 2001 Formula One season. The close of the season brought the split of Coulthard and Hakkinen after six years of being partners, a record for Formula One. Hakkinen had chosen to take a sabbatical from the sport. Coulthard ended the season in second place behind Schumacher. The team finished in second place with 102 points in the Constructors' Championship.

The MP4/16 was powered by a Mercedes-Benz, ten-cylinder engine and matted to a McLaren six-speed semi-automatic gearbox.

1984 Brazilian Grand Prix: An Overshadowed Overachievement
In 1983, a little-known Belgian driver by the name of Thierry Boutsen would buy his way into a drive with the Arrows Racing Team in time to take part in the Belgian Grand Prix. Though he would retire early in the race, he would follow the performance up with two-straight near misses of the points, beating his teammate in the process. He had been close with a car that was already overreaching. One year later, competing with an older and underdeveloped car, championship points couldn't have seemed...[Read more...]
1956 24 Hours of Le Mans: The Rise of Two Counts
The 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans would end up being the darkest day in all of motorsport when Pierre Levegh launched off the back of Lance Macklin's Austin-Healey and crashed into a barrier sending large portions of the car flying through the air acting like guillotines to the record crowd crammed along the main straight.
