Although Lewis Hamilton hasn't raced a McLaren for two years, the current F1 World Championship leader decided it was time to get behind the wheel of one again. After his recent Bahrain win, Hamilton decided to treat himself with a blue McLaren P1. While the Brit hasn't actually been seen driving the car himself, the car has already been spotted running around the sunny streets of Monaco.
The McLaren P1 will join Hamilton's special edition Pagani Zonda 760 LH (above) that already takes a spot in his garage and his soon-to-be Ferrari LaFerrari. With the P1's black wheels and carbon fiber splitter contrasting the vibrant blue, Hamilton's new car looks as competitive as its driver.
Deadmau5 just took delivery of his new McLaren P1 and he shared a photo of it on Twitter with the caption, "Going for a drive! Brb!". Deadmau5's been waiting for this moment since last October when he shared this photo. Now he has something to distract him while he waits for his BAC Mono!
After seventeen years, 41,000 miles, two crashes, and one owner, it looks like Rowan Atkinson is preparing to part ways with his McLaren F1. There isn't an actual online listing of the car yet so we don't know the exact price tag but it's somewhere around 8 million pounds or 12 million dollars.
That's a hefty tag for a car that was once wrapped around a tree, but because of the rarity of the F1 -- only 107 were ever produced and just 64 of them were actually street cars -- it's really no surprise.
While it's hard to top a McLaren F1, Atkinson is a longtime car enthusiast so we're sure he'll add another car to his garage soon.

Shout out to Vince for the tip
The Purrari is gone and the McLaren 650S is still in the garage, and now Deadmau5 is making more room for a brand new McLaren P1. We're not sure if he's actually keeping the 650S or not but either way, the P1 is on its way. Deadmau5 shared some screenshot photos of a P1 on his Instagram but it's still not clear what his actual P1 will look like. We can tell you one thing though, it won't be disappointing!
I wonder if he'll pick people up for Uber in the new P1 like he did with his 650S...
Shout out to Cory for the tip!
I don't know what it is about Deadmau5 but he's a damn good marketer. Last time it was his parody of the Seinfeld Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, this time he decided to sign up as an Uber driver in his McLaren 650S and give rides in downtown Toronto.
While I know this was probably a stunt dreamed up by Uber, I still think it was great and hope to see Macklemore pull up the next time my Uber pulls up in Seattle!
