McLaren MP4/13

Description
Even if Mika Häkkinen had his debut for the McLaren Team on the MP4/8, it was this version in 1998 that lifted him up among the greatest. Designed by Adrian Newey, the new MP4/13 was a perfect fit to the new ruleset and the grooved tyres. Efficient aerodynamics teamed up with the most powerfull engine (780 bhp) on the grid, the car immediately dominated the series and turned the first race into a pure McLaren showcase. Every single competitor got lapped at least once during the Astralian Grand Prix, just a sign of what was to come for the rest of the season. The MP4/13 was able to reach speeds up to 353 km/h and managed to win 9 GPs that season, with Häkkinen lifting the thophy 8 times out of those 9. Eventually it ended up with McLaren securing the constructors championship and the flying Finn to grab the drivers title, bringing back McLaren to the top of the series once again since the 1991 title.

Won't install. I've tried unsubbing, re-subbing and re-downloading and still nothing.

S397 has no intentions of making a modern F1 car so do not wait for it. Modern F1 along with its ridiculous 8 gears and blocked up vacuum cleaner sounds and electronics simply suck.

loving this car, best f1 car yet in my opinion, if i could just find some talent files to go with the 1998 skinpack it would be perfect!
