Zac Brown: “F1 is strong in the United States, even if there are no drivers or teams from here”


    F1 is constantly changing in popularity around the world. It is expanding by leaps and bounds in the Middle East and the latest boom is a return to the United States. Next year, in fact, there will be three races on the calendar that will be held in the North American country: Las Vegas, which has been added to the 2023 calendar, Austin, which has been running since 2011, and Miami, which was renamed in 2o21. . However, although this category hosts World Cup events, it is still orphaned by American teams or drivers. McLaren CEO and a US citizen Zac Brown believes that even though there are no statues or local references, there is still a lot of recognition of Formula 1 in the country.

    Fifteen years without an American pilot.

    Scott Speed ​​was the last driver to appear in F1. He was in the Toro Rosso adventure 15 years ago. And again it was Red Bull who tried to break the drought the following year by securing IndyCar driver Colton Herta with a steering wheel at AlphaTauri, but was met with the FIA’s refusal. who did not want to exempt a US pilot for obtaining a superlicense.

    McLaren chief executive Zac Brown acknowledged it would be great for F1, but also stressed it would not be an isolated factor. ,creativeOr that it would be great if both scenarios are realized. This would be another improvement for Formula 1 in the United States. Today, however, We don’t have any American teams or drivers and let’s see how popular Formula 1 is here.” blessed Assurance,

    Although he would love to be a driver or a team on the grid there. ,Of course, I’d like to have both, but I don’t think it should be because Formula 1 is strong in America today, even without an American team and driver,,

    Brown added the need for self-improvement. IndyCar team Andretti are working to secure a spot on the grid going forward, but have faced opposition from several current teams. McLaren has always been in favor of Andretti coming in. ,I think someone like Andretti can help develop this game. What we may lose in the short term by splitting the prize money will come back to us with more TV ratings, more sponsorships from North America. Some teams try to protect their income and don’t see the big picture“, concluded the leader of Woking.
