F20 2021 recruits Right moment for McLaren Hypercar

McLaren believes that the introduction of WEC Hypercar Regulations has been made almost at the same time when the modification of Formula 1 in 2021 is the right moment because the brand accepts the Le Mans attack for 24 hours in the future.

Before the end of this weekend in Le Mans, Automobile Club de l'Ostest confirmed the rules of the highest class of the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship for the 2020/21 season, ending months of uncertainty about the direction of the series.

McLaren, who has been an active part of the discussion about changing the current LMP1 category, is now evaluating whether it will participate in a new orbit, with Aston Martin and Toyota already committed.

"I think it's good that they have finalized it and have announced it because it gives us something to give feedback," McLaren General Manager Zack Brown told the media in Le Mans.

"In general, we are satisfied with the address." We all will work together, eventually, will present a recommendation on whether we are going to do it, how we will do this when we are going to do it. "

Brown has refused accommodation for the first season of new rules, but he wants to join them in the Walking-based team from the 2021/22 season.

He says that the proposed budget for the F12021 will help the team reorganize the Hypercar program.

"Everything is part of the analysis of how and when we will," he explained. "Budget Cap comes in 2021 and as soon as we are ready here in 2021.

"So he wants to reorganize his whole organization, this is the right time."

Brown, who "bends far away to the new rules," thinks he can take a hypervisor program with his F1 activities and on the possible return of IndyCar.

"All of our race decisions will be made in isolation, it will not have any involvement with our F1 team and the team will be formed to run it.

"Formula 1 comes from an economic perspective, which is not present, but it is expected that it will be economically more viable with the upcoming budget limit.

"We will execute everything independently, not just technically but also imaginary."

McLaren sports director Gil de Ferran said: "Clearly, there is a big change in the rules in 2021. We are making a lot of plans in that phase, all these ideas are WEC or all of this in IndyCar is kept in mind. "

"In terms of rules on the F1 front, there is a completely new world, so people can have the opportunity to deploy in a different way."

Alonso, McLaren F1 drivers can get seats.

De Ferran confirmed that McLaren's driver Fernando Alonso, with Toyota, Le Mans will already be on the possible WEC team's seat with the current team's drivers, Carlos Sanz, and Lando Norris.

"Fernando is part of McLaren family," said De Ferran. "I think any team will be happy to run Fernando in a car and we are not the exception."

"We have not ended any of them." We will look for the best possible driver lineup. If it involves some of our F1 drivers, then it would be great. "
