I can't wait to join the team and work with all the colleagues at the Sauber Group on the ambitious goals we have set together. I want to thank Finn Rausing and everyone at the Sauber Group for their choice. I am looking forward to repaying their trust with my work." Sauber chairman Rausing is happy about this cooperation, which will be of great importance for both parties.

"It is an immense pleasure to welcome Andreas Seidl back to Hinwil as CEO of the Sauber Group. Andreas's experience is second to none and he brings to Sauber Group a clear understanding of what is required to achieve sustained success.

He takes over a company on an upward path and he shares our commitment to keeping our organisation growing. I look forward to many years of success together." Oliver Hoffmann, CTO of AUDI AG is aware of the experience Seidl has and what he can bring.

"We welcome our future partner's choice," commented Oliver Hoffmann, CTO of AUDI AG. "Andreas Seidl has extensive experience in leadership roles across motorsport programs on both the manufacturer and Formula 1 team side.

His track record in motorsport is impressive."

Andrea Stella will be the new McLaren team principal. Stella praised the entire team and knows that an interesting task awaits him. "I feel privileged to take on the team principal role as the next stage of being part of the McLaren F1 Team," said Stella.

"I am grateful to Zak and the Shareholders for their trust in me and to all my colleagues and those who have supported me throughout my F1 career. We are realistic about the amount of work ahead of us to move back up the grid, but I am excited and encouraged that I am in this journey together with a team full of talent, experience, racing spirit and dedication."
