HISTORY

The McLaren – Honda MP4/6 is the car with which the McLaren team participated in the 1991 F1 World Championship.

The MP4/6 was designed by Neil Oatley, compared to the McLaren MP4/5B, the biggest difference was the new Honda 12 engine cylinders, which replaced the 10-cylinder used by McLaren in previous seasons. Despite the advent of the semi-automatic transmission at the wheel the McLaren – Honda MP4/6 n.1 had a 6-speed manual transmission, while Ferrari and Williams used the semi-automatic gearbox and was the last car with manual transmission and 12-cylinder engine to win a world title; while the aerodynamics was rather conventional.

Ayrton Senna with the McLaren Honda MP4/6 won his third world title, thanks to seven victories in the season: GP USA, GP Brazil, San Marino GP, GP Monaco, GP Hungary, GP Belgium and GP Australia. The victories obtained at the beginning of the season allowed him to control the rise in the rankings of Nigel Mansell on Williams, the world was decided in the GP of Japan where Mansell in an attempt to attack the brazilian, went off the track and had to retire, Senna mathematically world champion left victory for team-mate Berger.
