McLaren - The most successful F1 team at Austrian GP
McLaren is the most successful F1 constructor at the Austrian Grand Prix, having won the race six times – most recently in 2001, with David Coulthard.

McLaren’s most memorable Austrian Grand Prix: 1998

A rain shower during qualifying turned the session into a scramble and Giancarlo Fisichella took pole for Benetton with Jean Alesi’s Sauber alongside. McLaren drivers Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard lined up third and 14th respectively.

Of the front-runners, Hakkinen made the best start. He jumped straight into the lead and was never headed for the rest of the race. Coulthard made a good start, but his race was turned on its head when he was hit by Mika Salo’s Arrows at Turn Two, forcing him to pit for a new nose.

Hakkinen was forced to defend from Michael Schumacher early on, but pulled away into a comfortable lead by half-distance. Coulthard, meanwhile, charged through the field to fifth place and took third when Fisichella and Alesi collided ahead of him. When Eddie Irvine was forced to pit from second place late in the race, Coulthard took second to complete McLaren’s fourth one-two finish of the season. (Source: McLaren)
