McLaren: Andreas Seidl to leave position as team principal

Andreas Seidl is to leave his position as McLaren team principal to head up Audi’s nascent Formula 1 programme at the Alfa Romeo/Sauber team. The 46-year-old German will be replaced at McLaren by Italian Andrea Stella, executive racing director since 2019. He was also an engineer at the Sauber team when it was owned by BMW between 2006 and 2009. Stella will lead McLaren’s technical and operational programme and he steps up to run the team after a long career as an engineering leader in F1. When Alonso left Ferrari for McLaren at the end of 2014, Stella decided to go with him, first as head of race operations, then performance director in 2018 and racing director in 2019.
