McLaren hints at new Mercedes engine deal for 2026

McLaren looks set to continue its push for the front of the grid with customer Mercedes power. But team boss Andrea Stella has now hinted that staying with Mercedes power is in fact the most likely route for McLaren in 2026 and beyond. “It’s great to be a factory team,” he said, “but it’s almost the same if your partner is a well-known manufacturer. We want to be in good shape – both in terms of the chassis and with a good power unit. “At the moment, our limitations have nothing to do with our power unit, which is excellent,” he said.
