While a chronograph watch is one of the most sought-after types of watch, this particular function gets often overlooked or ignored, because most of the time it seems more difficult to use than it really is. But you’re here because you want to get the most of your Formula 1 timepiece, so we’re gonna tell you how to use it properly.
Join us as we delve into Giorgio Piola’s 2019 archive and bring you insight into the relentless development undertaken by the teams throughout a season in the pursuit of more performance. In today’s gallery we will focus on… McLaren.
In a season where it promised much, Renault fell well short of the goals it had set itself. Although the engine performed much closer to its rivals than before, the step forward it had expected to take on the chassis and aero side with the arrival of star driver Daniel Ricciardo simply didn’t happen. Having been a solid fourth in 2018, Renault scored fewer points this term and fell behind McLaren – who beat it with its own engines.
With a year of Honda experience under its belt, this was a season where the tiny Faenza-based team was able to focus on improving aero performance, putting it in a stronger position to pounce on the bigger teams ahead of it.
