Team McLaren-Mercedes will celebrate a milestone at the Turkish Grand Prix this coming weekend, as the event marks the 200th grand prix for the McLaren and the Mercedes-Benz partnership.

“This is already the 200th grand prix together with our partner McLaren since 1995 – a period which has truly passed at racing speed,” said Mercedes boss, Norbert Haug. “An anniversary like this is also an occasion to look back, although in all sporting competitions, the present and the future are obviously more important than the past.

McLaren CEO, Martin Whitmarsh meanwhile is also hopeful and reckons their form in Hungary is another good sign: “It was an excellent result for Pedro in Hungary at the last race [to finish second]. Both he and Kimi, with their respective strategies, were strong throughout the weekend and we hope that we can continue this pace into Turkey,” he added.
