Amon 1976

In ’76 Chris Amon drove an Ensign. In a McLaren he’d have been as good as Hunt, says Alan Henry.

One could only dream of what Chris might have achieved in a front-line works McLaren M23, for example. Do I think that, if he’d been securely strapped into the cockpit of an M23 instead of James Hunt, he would have won the 1976 championship as Hunt did? Of course I do; James was extremely quick and scarily determined, but I’d rate Chris as the more complete and rounded driver of the two.
