McLaren-Ferrari rivalry slides to winter olympics
F1's famous Ferrari versus McLaren rivalry has spilled into the winter olympics.
It emerges that McLaren, with two employees actually at the Sochi games, has been helping the British national team with Lizzy Yarnold's 'skeleton' sled, on which she slid to gold last Friday.
And in bobsled, McLaren has been in competition with Ferrari, who were involved in the development of the Italian machine.
Referring to the rivalry, McLaren Applied Technologies' Carolina Hargrove told Reuters: "We like that. It's part of how we are.
"Everyone working here is seriously competitive and the same on their (Ferrari's) side. So it adds another element to it, which is quite fun. It's not more than fun," she added.
