McLaren was started by Bruce McLaren, a New Zealander. Mika Hakkinen, the team's lead driver won the Drivers Championship in 1998, and the team won the Constructors Championship the same year. The team's other driver is Scotsman David Coulthard. In addition to Formula 1, McLaren produces a street car, the McLaren F1. It uses a non-turbocharged, 800 hp engine, very similar to the engines used in the team's race cars.
