From 1981 to January 2009, Ron Dennis was the team principal of the McLaren Formula One team, and was instrumental in transforming the outfit into a world championship contender. Constructors’ and drivers’ world championships were won with Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Häkkinen and Lewis Hamilton. In January 2014, he removed the position of Team Principal held by Martin Whitmarsh, effectively giving himself back control of the Formula One team.

Jenson Button

Jenson began his racing career on the karting track, as the majority of drivers do, and achieved instant success. Winning the British Super Prix in 1989, aged nine, was just the beginning. In 1991, he won all 34 races of the British Cadet Kart Championship before becoming Junior TKM Champion a year later. Further successes followed until Jenson became the youngest driver ever to win the European Super A Championship, aged just 17.

Kevin Magnussen

Kev will see his graduation to Formula 1 as the next step on his lifelong journey towards becoming Formula 1 world champion. It’s been a heady trip. After a successful career in karting, Kev made the jump to single-seaters in 2008, winning the Danish Formula Ford championship with a hugely impressive record of 11 wins, 12 podiums, six pole positions and 10 fastest laps.
