McLaren renew Mercedes F1 engine partnership until 2030

Continues union that began in 2021 and carries team through regulation overhaul in 2026.

The McLaren Formula One team will continue to be powered by Mercedes until 2030 following the announcement of a new deal.

The British team has run Mercedes engines for the past three seasons and the contract extension will carry it through to the revamp of power unit regulations in 2026.

McLaren Racing chief executive Zak Brown said: “Mercedes-Benz have been a brilliant and reliable partner of the McLaren Formula One Team.

“The extension signifies the confidence that our shareholders and the wider team have in their powertrains and the direction we’re taking with them into the new era of regulations ahead.

“We have been successful together, both in the last three seasons and when they previously powered the team, so we look forward to the success to come as we continue our journey to fight consistently at the front of the grid.”

Following lacklustre engine deals with Honda and Renault, the partnership with Mercedes has propelled McLaren up the grid, with Daniel Ricciardo claiming their first win in nine years at the 2021 Italian Grand Prix.

British driver Lando Norris has secured five podiums from his last seven appearances ahead of this weekend’s concluding round in Abu Dhabi.

McLaren won the last of their world championships in 2008 powered by Mercedes when Lewis Hamilton took his first title in Brazil.
