1971 McLaren M19
9/11/2012. The Wheatcroft Collection - Donington Park - UK
Viewed from above and front the M19 has a distinctive "coke" bottle shape.
It had a "rising rate suspension" but it never worked very well.
Denny Hulme was 4 laps away from victory in the season opener at Kyalami when the rear suspension collapsed, he finished 6th. Throughout the season the car was quick but fragile for 1972 they reverted to a more normal suspension.
