Looking back on McLaren’s 50th year in F1 – one of their worst – you might be surprised by what rookie Kevin Magnussen said when his signing was announced.

“I’ll put it simply: this team is the best,” said the young Dane, whose father Jan made his own F1 debut in a McLaren in the Pacific Grand Prix in Japan in 1995.

“It's been my dream to drive for McLaren ever since I was a small kid,” Magnussen Jr. continued, “and it's no exaggeration to say that I've dedicated almost every day of my life to achieving the goal of becoming a McLaren Formula 1 driver.”
