McLaren to acquire Mercedes formula E team

McLaren to enter Formula E, completes Mercedes EQ team acquisition »  FirstSportz

Mercedes-Benz won’t be racing in Formula E next season, but its team will be as McLaren is acquiring Mercedes’ squad and will join the series for its ninth season.

The transaction replaces one major racing name with another, after Mercedes stung the all-electric racing series last August with its announcement that it will not compete in the series after this year.

McLaren also competes in Formula 1, IndyCar, and Extreme E.
The ninth season will be the first for Formula E’s Gen3 vehicle, which was unveiled last month.

The team will continue to be led by Ian James, who is transitioning to McLaren after around 20 years at Mercedes.
