Executive Director of McLaren Zach brown would like the annual appearance of the team from Woking in the legendary race “Indie 500”.
Not so long ago it became known that the manufacturer will return to the prestigious race for the first time since 1970-ies: the team will work in conjunction with Andretti Autosport and will be put up for competition one car, the driver will be Fernando Alonso.
“I would like to see McLaren-Honda at Indianapolis every year, said Zach. Initially I thought that we can start to bring this idea into reality in 2018.
However, we had a unique opportunity and seized it, taking into account the circumstances that McLaren faced in 2017 in F1, and given the desire to Fernando and the team.
McLaren always loved racing IndyCar. This is a fantastic series. I wish McLaren had been a frequent part of this event.
We would like to repeat this experience with Fernando again? Of course. What happens in 2018? No one knows, because we are doing our best to provide Fernando and Stoffele of Vandorn competitive equipment.”
