errrr yes it is...

Eitherway, not quite sure if this is how Bruce would have wanted the team to come... we consider it a british team... yet the first mclaren logo was a kiwi... sounds more new zelandish than british to me!

Eitherway still sad that Mclaren could not be around to see what his team is like now.

eddie. yes, those can-ams were real brutes. but it is a shame that many mclaren "fans" pay no heed to the real heritage of mclaren. wouldnt it be nice if mclaren acknowledge the heritage in canada, by painting a kiwi on their cars. (martin, are you listening)

I sincerly believe Bruce was and still is, by far the most successful and influential person to come out of New Zealand. Even more inspiring is what he went through as a kid, he spent 2 years in traction, in a bed unable to walk, but all it did was make him stronger and give him the inspiration to become an engineer.
Im a patriotic Kiwi and feel nothing but pride for what he and his team have accomplished.
Sure its a British team now, but they were born in NZ and ill never forget that. (nor will I let anyone else forget it :P)

"McLaren has celebrated the 40th anniversary of the death of founder Bruce McLaren at its Woking base."

Poor choice of words. They were celebrating the man but commemorating the anniversary, I wouldn't think they would celebrate his death.
