Brown to remain McLaren Racing CEO until 2030 after extension

McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown has been rewarded for recent progress within the team with a contract extension that will keep him in his role until at least 2030.

Brown joined McLaren in late 2016, going on to become CEO of McLaren Racing in 2018, a position he has held ever since. The Californian is regularly the team’s spokesperson but has also overseen multiple changes in the wider racing operation, entering and winning races in the likes of IndyCar and Formula E.

The Formula 1 team has also made significant strides in recent seasons, with a major turnaround in form after an overhaul of the technical team seeing McLaren finish fourth in the constructors’ championship last year and end the season regularly fighting to be the second-quickest team.
