McLaren will race in the climate-aware off-road series Extreme E next year.

The illustrious Formula 1 team, who have eight constructors’ titles, join seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton, whose own X44 team is currently competing in the inaugural season.

“Our attention was immediately drawn by the innovative format of this motorsport platform,” said McLaren chief executive officer Zak Brown.

Brown added: “It gives us the ability to accelerate and boost our own overarching sustainability agenda, which shares the same priorities of decarbonisation, waste reduction, diversity and equality.”

Extreme E is two races into its five-race season, in which cars travel on a ‘floating paddock’ – the St Helena ship – to remote locations around the world to race electric SUVs as well as raise awareness on areas affected by climate change.

So far both races have been won by RXR – a team entered by 2016 F1 world champion Nico Rosberg.

The Woking-based McLaren team were behind all of Ayrton Senna’s world titles in the late ’80s and early ’90s, as well as Lewis Hamilton’s first F1 title win in 2008.

McLaren currently sit fourth in the F1 standings following a positive start to the 2021 season, including a third-placed finish for British driver Lando Norris in Monaco last month. (BBC)
