McLaren Racing announced in a statement that the team: “will enter the 2022/2023 ABB FIA Formula E 20 20 World Championships and begin the Gen3 era in the pioneer race of the electric race.”

Formula E joins the McLaren Competition for Formula 1, IndyCar, Extreme E and Esports.

The McLaren Formula E team will be formed with the acquisition of the Formula E Mercedes-EQ team, the team’s two world champions, in the builders’ championship. Ian James will continue to lead the team, allowing for a smooth transition to McLaren after the end of the current season.

Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, said:

McLaren Race always seeks to compete with the best and the fastest of technology, giving our fans, partners and people new ways to excite, entertain and encourage. System E, like our entire race series, meets all of these criteria.

He continues:

I firmly believe that Form E will give McLaren Racing a competitive advantage through a better understanding of the EV race, while providing a different dimension for our fans, partners and our people, and continue to push us on our journey of sustainability.

In short :

McLaren Racing have just left the Mercedes-EQ Formula E team and will compete in the Formula E World Championships in 2022. Ian James will continue to lead the team, enabling a good transition to McLaren after the end of the current season.
