James Key: Former McLaren technical director to join Sauber

James Key, ousted as McLaren technical director in March, is to join the Alfa Romeo Sauber team in the same role in September. Key’s return to a team for whom he was deputy technical director for two years from 2010 to 2012 before moving to Red Bull’s Toro Rosso team underlines Seidl’s faith in his skills as a technical leader. Key joined McLaren in 2018 and the two worked together when Seidl was team principal at the British team from 2019 to 2022. Key split with McLaren in March after the team missed their development targets over the winter for their 2023 car. Seidl said Key “joins us to shape the future of this team”.
