Andreas Seidl and Zak Brown

Restructuring continues at McLaren to return to the path of success, the last addition we have known is that of Andreas Seidl who will be the new general manager of McLaren for F1 2019. But it will not be the last, as the team is in the process of change, signing staff to get a strong structure and more success, in addition to continuing to strengthen their sponsors for this season.

Zak Brown continues to work hard to return the burning minds that Woking needs . Andreas Seidl himself already has extensive experience in the world of competition, and comes directly from the WEC, where he has been responsible for leading the Porsche team to victory. But besides that, he has also worked at BMW Sauber in the past (2009), so he knows the world of F1 inside and it will not be too complicated to adapt.

Amabas parties have made the appropriate announcements and have shown words of pride, gratitude and interest to start working together, as usual when contracts are signed and made public. I hope that with this leader, McLaren will find some pleasant surprises in this season that will start soon.

As you know, it is not the only important name that has joined the team in the past. months He also did Gil de Ferran, James Key, Pat Fry , etc., leaving others like Eric Boullier, Tim Goss and Matt Morris. Therefore, with all these changes, the hierarchical structure looks like this:

  • CEO: Zak Brown
  • General Director: Andreas Seidl
  • Sports Director: Gil de Ferran
  • Technical director: James Key
  • Engineering director: Pat Fry
  • Director of aerodynamics: Peter Prodromou
  • Director of operations: Simon Roberts
  • Director of operations on track: Paul James

And all these bosses, have under their command a large number of men with much talent , among which there are Spaniards (as you can see in the 2nd image) ... So I wish you the best!
