Classic cars are returning to the official F1 game for the first time since F1 2013, and developers Codemasters have been teasing us for a couple months now by slowly releasing the list of 12 classic cars that shall feature on the F1 2017 game.
Now with just over a month to go for the launch of the new game, Codemasters have finally revealed the final three iconic McLaren classic cars thus revealing the full list.
Alongside the 1998 Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost driven legendary McLaren MP4/4 that was announced in the starter pack, the three other McLarens that shall feature on this game are as follows.
1991 McLaren MP4/6
Driven by Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger in the 1991 Formula 1 season, the MP4/6 dominated the ’91 season with 10 poles and 8 wins in 18 races, bringing Senna his third and final World Championship title.
1998 McLaren MP4-13
Designed by Adrian Newey and driven by Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard in the ’98 season, this McLaren brought McLaren back to winning ways. In 18 race entries, it took 12 poles, 9 wins, 9 fastest laps, and brought Mika Hakkinen his first World Championship Title.
2008 McLaren MP4-23
Renowned as the car in which Lewis Hamilton won his first world championship in only his second year in F1, the MP4-23 was a beast. Driven by Hamilton and team-mate Heikki Kovalainen and designed by Paddy Lowe, this car won only 6 of the 18 races but crucially managed to secure 8 poles and 13 podiums.
