SP: Exactly. Even if you're not a fan - and I'm sensing that, on some level, you're not - can you really blame McLaren? The Special Ops team has made clear this was the vision of one man - one very rich, possibly lightly troubled man - not its own design department. If a billionaire had a faux-historic, Corinthian-columned, salmon-pink mansion constructed in the middle of the Peak District, we'd unquestionably have the right to be offended. But surely we'd be annoyed with the Premiership footballer who commissioned the house, not the builders that constructed it?
