Formula One and corporate are words often found in same sentence together. You see all the stickers on the sides of the car and enviously wonder whether the VIP guests are drinking the ten-year old red or white back in the hospitality suite.

It was a situation I never really expected to be in when I grew up watching the likes of Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve and Mika Hakkinen go head-to-head on a fortnightly basis.

I was the guest of Mobil 1 for the day on a tour of the McLaren Technology Centre, where we got to see the inner workings of one of F1’s most successful teams.
