McLaren CEO Zak Brown Tests Positive For Covid-19


McLaren CEO Zak Brown tested positive for the Covid-19 coronavirus and will miss this weekend’s 2021 British Grand Prix.

Brown had most recently been in attendance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as well as a London premiere of a film. In addition to Brown, two other members of the McLaren team – neither of whom were the drivers – also tested positive for Covid-19.

McLaren issued a statement:

McLaren Racing confirmed today that three team members, including CEO Zak Brown, tested positive for Covid-19 during the team’s rigorous testing program before the British Grand Prix. Neither of our drivers are close contacts.

All three cases are unconnected and now isolating in accordance with government guidelines. The team’s operations for the British Grand Prix are unaffected.
