McLaren celebrated winning their first drivers title in nine years in spectacular style tonight with a dazzling fireworks display at the team’s Woking base.
Lewis Hamilton became the youngest driver to win the Formula One World Championship on Sunday after finishing fifth in a thrilling Brazilian Grand Prix.
In recognition of Hamilton’s achievement and the hard work of the team, a special fireworks display was organised for all 1000 McLaren staff at the McLaren Technology Centre, followed by champagne, music and a speech by team principal Ron Dennis.
One of the tracks played was ‘My Way’, and in his speech Dennis said of the team’s championship success: ‘Well, we did it our way.”
Only a year ago McLaren employees had to endure the pain of seeing the team kicked out of the constructors’ championship as a result of the spy scandal.
