Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton.
Just remember those names, particularly when somebody mentions that Jenson Button has made the wrong decision in signing to drive for McLaren.
All these motor racing legends won world championship crowns at the wheel of a succession of highly competitive McLaren creations over the past three decades.
And yet, this will be no magic carpet ride for the 2009 world champion. Jackie Stewart is right when he says that he’ll have a hard time getting his feet under the table in a team which Hamilton has very much made his own.
Hell, Lewis even managed to send twice world champ Fernando Alonso packing at the end of a 2007 season brimful of personal enmity. And this, don’t forget, was in Lewis's very first F1 campaign.
