McLaren Racing extends Zak Brown's contract as CEO through 2030

McLaren Racing boss Zak Brown said Friday he's signed an extension to remain in charge of the organization through 2030.

Brown made the announcement on social media . He has been CEO since 2018 and the American oversees all of McLaren's racing programs from its England-based headquarters.

McLaren later confirmed the contract extension at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

“It's a privilege to work alongside the talented men and women across McLaren Racing's different race series,” Brown wrote. “Together, with our people, our fans, and our partners, we will continue to push the boundaries of motorsport and strive for the highest performance on and off the track.”

McLaren is the only team that competes in Formula 1, IndyCar, Formula E, Extreme E and esports. The F1 team fields cars for Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, who are both under long-term contracts. The IndyCar team fields cars for Pato O'Ward, Alexander Rossi and David Malukas, although Malukas is injured and Callum Ilott has been his replacement driver for the first two IndyCar races.

Brown closed his statement noting “as CEO, and as a McLaren fan, I want what you want, to win. Let's keep pushing.”

Australia is the third race of the F1 season. IndyCar is in Thermal, California, for a $1 million exhibition race.
