Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul has revealed he was surprised that McLaren wasn't its main rival in 2018.
After Ferrari, McLaren is the oldest and most successful team in Formula 1 history. The British racing team was founded in 1963 by New Zealander Bruce McLaren. In 1981, the team was taken over by Ron Dennis, and under his helm the Woking-based team had their most successful period. McLaren have won a total of eight drivers’ championships and twelve constructors' titles. The last world title of McLaren dates back to 2008, when a young Lewis Hamilton won it for them.
