A couple of weeks later in Saudi Arabia another dismal result of 15 th and 17 th failed to gain
There has always been a question mark over whether McLaren’s board were going to depart ways with Zak Brown. It must be said that Zak’s contributions to McLaren have seen a rapid increase in sponsorship and engagement for the brand as a whole. Attending races over the last couple of years since the pandemic the varied range of McLaren fans can easily be identified by their papaya baseball caps regardless of age.
With that parting of ways, the final stages of announcing Daniel’s replacement Oscar Piastri started off confusing just about everyone with Alpine announcing him as their replacement for Fernando Alonso, then for Oscar to publicly announce that wasn’t the case and then a couple of days later McLaren confirm the appointment. I believe Alpine did this deliberately to force the confirmation but isn’t that what silly season is all about?
Lastly the change in what must have been the equivalent of being a pinball fired around a machine level of travel. If you take a close look at Zak’s movements over 2022 to say at times, he was absent from races and attendance at and all time low at HQ wouldn’t be far from the truth as he explored his other hobbies.
