About the M19
In 1970 the McLaren team faced a dire situation having lost team driver/owner Bruce McLaren in an accident. Now under Teddy Meyer’s control, the team decided to deviate from the cigar . The result was McLaren’s entry for the 1971 season: the M19.
The M19 came equipped with a a new suspension structure and fuel tanks installed on both sides to lower the center of gravity, which also lead to the unique coke bottle shaped cowl. Debuting as the M19A in 1971 it suffered a hard season, however with Yardley becoming the main sponsors in 1972 it managed to gain a victory at the South African GP. The car was further remodeled into the lighter M19C, and it raced until partway through the 1973 season until it became replaced by the M23.
