O’Ward Named Reserve Driver For McLaren F1

ST. CHARLES, Ill. — Thanksgiving Day is not celebrated outside of the United States, but Thursday morning’s announcement for McLaren Formula 1 has given Pato O’Ward reason to be thankful. The 24-year-old, who drives for Arrow McLaren in the NTT IndyCar Series, was named the Formula 1 reserve driver for McLaren F1 on Nov. 23. “The McLaren Formula 1 team are pleased to welcome Pato O’Ward to our pool of reserve drivers for the 2024 season,” McLaren F1 Team Principal Andrea Stella said. O’Ward joins the team’s pool of reserve drivers during the 2024 season, along with his current driver duties with Arrow McLaren. McLaren Racing was founded by racing driver Bruce McLaren 60 years ago in 1963. The team also competes in the F1 Sim Racing Championship as McLaren Shadow, having won the 2022 Constructors’ and Drivers’ Championships.
