McLaren enters Formula 1 instead of Mercedes

McLaren enters Formula E instead of Mercedes

McLaren will venture into Formula E starting next season. The team will replace Mercedes EQ, which says goodbye at the end of this campaign and will be acquired by the British.

Those of Woking make their way into a new category. They currently took place in Formula 1, Esports, IndyCar and Extreme E; now they will join the electric phase in its season 9.

On the other hand, McLaren confirmed that the current director of Mercedes, Ian James, will remain in charge once the entry of the UK team is finalized. However, the seats that will be held in this category and sponsors have been left up in the air.

“McLaren Racing is always looking to compete against the best and at the forefront of technology, giving our fans, partners and people new ways to be excited, entertained and inspired”; Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, highlighted in the statement .

It should be noted that in 2021, the team had signed the option to be present in the 2023 campaign through an evaluation and on the occasion of the arrival of the Gn3. Now they will seek to venture successfully and be a solid team.
