McLaren MP4-24 (2009) - Hungarian GP


2009 marked the beginning of a very new Formula One, with a raft of new technical rules having been introduced. Piloted by Heikki Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton, the McLaren now featured heavily revised bodywork, very different-looking rear and front wings and a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS). 2009 also saw the much-lauded return of slick tyres.

During a three-week gap between the German and Hungarian rounds, the MP4-24s were upgraded to a new specification. In Hungary, both drivers enjoyed a good qualifying, with Hamilton qualifying fourth and Kovalainen sixth. Hamilton then went on to win the race in a very convincing fashion, causing widespread acclaim in the media. McLaren went on to claim third place in the Constructors’ Championship that season.
