So how are McLaren coping with the current crisis? On Wednesday, Team Principal Andreas Seidl gave a wide-ranging interview, discussing the team’s current situation, the impact of the virus on the calendar and why his team is keen to see the budget cap reduced.

McLaren was the first team to reveal they had put some of their staff on furlough, with senior management and the drivers among those taking a pay cut. Racing Point, Williams, Renault and Haas subsequently followed suit. The move was designed to protect jobs and the health of the business in the short term – and it was not a decision McLaren CEO Zak Brown or Seidl took lightly.

“There’s a reason why we made this decision,” says Seidl. “It’s simply impossible to know exactly what the financial impact of this crisis will be. We know that we are not going racing at the moment, we know we will miss income this year.


 McLaren was front and center in global news headlines when they reported the first positive coronavirus test in Formula 1 back in March. The British team immediately pulled out of the Australian Grand Prix, which was subsequently canceled. Since then, a lot has changed…

All team members who were quarantined have now been given a clear bill of health, but the coronavirus retains a vice-like grip on the world, leading to an earlier and extended team factory shutdown, half the grid placing at least some of their staff on an extended leave of absence, and a series of race postponements and cancellations.


“This is why we had to put different measures in place to make sure we are protecting our people and protecting the team to be in a position that once this crisis is over to restart again in the best possible shape.

“One of these measures was putting people on furlough which was obviously one of the most difficult decisions I have had to do in my working life - telling our people to be on furlough and also take pay cuts. But we were clear, together with Zak, that it was a decision we had to make to make sure we protect the team as good as possible.”
