THE McLaren team are aiming to make sure their new Paragon facility is the most high tech in Formula One, after a new deal was announced on Monday.
The team's attention to detail is clear in their development of the new 200-acre facility which is scheduled for completion in 2002, and the agreement to install high tech toilets will ensure the team are best equipped to get on with the job.
