Hamilton, Button & Senna’s McLaren (video)

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

McLaren have put out a video showing Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button poking around their store of old Formula 1 cars and pulling back the covers on a 1988 MP4-4.

Both take turns sitting in the car which was driven by Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, winning 15 of the 16 races they started. It feels a bit scripted in parts but on the whole it’s an interesting watch.

Hamilton was supposed to drive the car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year. But on the day before his run it broke down while being driven by Bruno Senna.

This year the Hamilton and Button will take turns driving the 1986 MP4-2C that Prost drove to the world championship, as well as the MP4-23 Hamilton won his title in two years ago.
