: The Team - a Season with McLaren

"I don't know whether it's good or bad for Formula 1 to have these sophisticated systems as part of our cars," says driver Ayrton Senna. He's talking just after the sport's governing body Fisa dropped a mid-season bombshell by attempting to outlaw the active suspension system, used with success by Williams and McLaren, "I just think the way they've done [it] ... is the wrong way."
The Formula 1 technological battleground is the setting for this episode in the documentary series that has followed a year in the life of the McLaren motor racing team. But such is the ability to react, off as well as on the track, that within two days of Fisa's ruling, Senna was at Silverstone testing a McLaren without active suspension.
McLaren's fury at the Fisa ruling, and the anger of racing engineer Giorgio Ascanelli when he is not satisfied with the performance of test driver Mika Hakkinen, show the pressure of the Formula 1 team not wanting to lose out to its rivals.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
