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.
