1992 McLaren MP4/7A Honda Formula1 car, Ayrton Senna markings. Although not as famous as other more successful McLarens with her agressively sculpted chassis and airbox the MP4/7 is my all-time favorite F1. From Wikipedia: The McLaren MP4/7A was McLaren International's Formula One entry for 1992, and a follow-up to their successful MP4/6 from the previous season. This was the first McLaren to use a semi-automatic transmission, it was a McLaren-designed electro-hydraulic unit with semi-automatic activation. TAG Electronic Systems helped with development. This system allowed the driver to keep his foot on the pedal, without lifting from it, since the throttle cable was replaced with an electronic sensor. It also controlled engine speed automatically during gear changes. A variant of the car, dubbed MP4/7B, featuring an experimental active suspension system, was introduced in testing for that year's Portuguese Grand Prix. It proved sufficiently unreliable that it was not used for the remainder of the 1992 season. #F1 #Formula_1 #Formula_One #Honda #Marlboro #McLaren #Senna
