The past seasons for one of Formula 1’s most noted teams have not brought any success or luck but the current season seems to be going quite fine for McLaren. Isn’t it? While the iconic racing team is already benefitting from the likes of Carlos Sainz Jr., the experienced Spanish driver in the outfit, having a talented rookie of the class of Briton Lando Norris, is also paying the team well.
Thus far, Lando Norris has been able to finish more races in points vis-a-vis his senior at McLaren. And that said, it’s not the only thing going quite right for the Zak Brown-outfit.
With the car holding out well thus far, it can be hoped that in the 17 races that remain ahead, a lot of good things could be in the offing for the famous team for which legends like Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost drove in the past.
Just a few hours back, the racing side announced an important alliance that it had entered. It’s become official that McLaren and Arrow Electronics have entered into a partnership. So what is this development all about and how does it impact a side that currently sits fourth on the Construct Rankings, behind Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull, in that order?
Speaking on this important occasion, the CEO of McLaren shared the following:
“McLaren is a technology business at its heart and it is, therefore, natural to welcome Arrow, a global leader in its field, as a new partner.
“McLaren, like Arrow, is driven by innovation and applying technology in the pursuit of better, not just in motorsport but across all our group activities. We are delighted Arrow has decided to join our racing team. We’re proud of the class-leading brands that support our racing efforts and we’re looking forward to getting out on track together.”
That said, Mr. Mike Long, who happens to be the CEO of Arrow Electronics was also optimistic and delighted on the alliance and shared his excitement about taking racing to the next level. Let’s hope that with such positive developments around, McLaren do return to their dominant ways as seen so commonly in the past.
