#efsi#bestbox#10#mclaren#m7c: The McLaren M7 had numerous wing configurations during its #f1 racing history—some quite close to the driver’s head! The M7A was the team’s car of choice for #brucemclaren and #dennyhulme for most of 1968, taking them to second in the Constructor’s Championship, but the M7C (which had a wing much closer to this model) took McLaren to his third podium of 1969 at the #nurburgring.
