McLaren will join the Extreme E team next year as organizers saw it as a major breakthrough in the entire off-road electrical series after it debuted in 2021.
Zak Brown, McLaren Racing’s general manager, told Reporters that he expects it to be “commercially positive” from the first season and that Formula 1 team staff will not be included in the project.
McLaren will be the 10th team to register in the five-race series created by Spaniard Alejandro Agag of Spain, with two more slots still available.
