McLaren Honda are focused on their Formula One programme and are not looking to compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series anytime in the near future according to the team’s Executive Director Zak Brown.
Speaking to Paddock Eye at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed on Sunday, Brown said that the Woking based outfit are fully focused on getting back to the front in Formula One.
McLaren returned to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May of this year when Fernando Alonso drove an Andretti Autosport prepared McLaren Honda Andretti in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil where he did a fantastic job leading the race several times before being forced to retire from the event just 21 laps from the finish.
McLaren, who have endured a difficult three year relationship with engine partner Honda will have an upgrade from the Japanese manufacturer for this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring.
Fernando Alonso is hopeful that the Woking based outfit will be able to add to their two champion points in Austria.
