Richard Mille & McLaren Present 50 Years Of Formula One

In 1966 New Zealand ex-pat Bruce McLaren started up his very own Grand Prix team with a chassis that wore his name.

That very same British outfit would go on to implement the very first carbon fibre monocoque chassis in F1 history before taking out countless championships and race wins. Today McLaren is one of the sport’s most enduring teams who are continuing to push the boundaries of technology despite their ongoing challenges.

To celebrate 50 years in Formula One, Swiss watchmaker Richard Mille have retraced the McLaren story from the very beginning in a touching video to show the team’s humble beginnings from a south London workshop to fully fledged race team fighting at the pointy end.
