So this was way more humbling than I’d given thought to. Having been focused on the fair challenge of moving 160kg of bronze around in a hire van, trying to coordinate the foundry with Brazilian TV and with management at McLaren HQ, it had kind of escaped me just what I was doing.
Unwrapping the life size bronze on the famous boulevard at McLaren, next to Ayrton’s 1990 championship winning car, there was a very real sense of bringing him home. A lump in the throat. And a dream culmination of my most ambitious project by a long long way.
Then someone pointed a camera at me 2.5 million views of this clip between McLaren and F1’s social pages in 24hrs!
