McLaren extend Lando Norris deal

Lando Norris, McLaren, with Andreas Seidl, Team Principal, McLaren

Lando Norris extends his contract with McLaren in what the team are calling a multi-year deal. While his current contract wasn’t set to expire until 2025, it did leave the door open for other teams, such as Red Bull, Audi and Mercedes, to snoop around.

McLaren CEO Zak Brown said:

“A multi-year extension that goes well beyond his current contract.”

“I’m delighted that we’re continuing our relationship with Lando for multiple years to come. It’s been a fantastic journey over the last six years, and he has shown fantastic commitment and desire to push the team forward and get McLaren back to the front of the grid.”

Lando Norris said:

“It’s a great feeling to be staying in papaya. I’ve grown up with McLaren and feel at home here, the team are like family to me. The journey so far has been exciting, we’ve had ups and downs, but last season showed our desire to get back to competing at the front of the grid.

“The work Zak, Andrea and the whole team have put in over the last year has been incredible and I’m confident in challenging for wins with McLaren. I’m excited to create more amazing memories and continue working hard with everyone at MTC for the next few years.”

This announcement, just 24 hours after Ferrari announced their re-signing of Charles Leclerc, leaves McLaren solid through 2026 when Oscar Piastri’s contract comes to an end.
