F1: McLaren on top of world

JUST 12 months on from ‘spygate’ and one of the worst season’s in their illustrious history, McLaren are feeling on top of the world.

The Woking-based giants have topped a popularity poll ahead of Ferrari and the rest in a wide-ranging survey spanning 160 countries and involving 70,000 people.

The Global fan Survey, conducted by F1 Racing and banking giant ING, launched in October has revealed that McLaren have overturned a Ferrari majority in quite dramatic style, rising from 21% two years ago to 29%.

In the same timescale, Ferrari have dipped from 30% to 28% — with the Lewis Hamilton factor thought to have had a huge impact on the voting.

More than two thirds of those who took part in the online voting, 68%, said that they had followed F1 for 10 years or more and a third said they go to at least one Grand Prix a year. The next favourite outfits, outside of the top two, were Williams and Renault, who each polled 6%.

“For Vodafone McLaren Mercedes to top this global survey of F1 fans is fantastic,” McLaren’s chief operating officer Martin Whitmarsh told F1 Racing.

“While Lewis deserves every accolade he has received since becoming the youngest world champion the sport has ever seen, in reality, for this to be achieved requires the same level of dedication and hard work from every member of the team in Woking, Brixworth and Stuttgart."
