Inevitably, Carlos Sainz will be compared to his fellow Spaniard Fernando Alonso this season, as his direct replacement in the McLaren team for 2019.
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.
