McLaren has several options if it cannot engage Piastri

Zak Brown said McLaren had « multiple plans » and a « variety of options » depending on the outcome of the FIA’s Contract Recognition Board.

A standoff is underway between McLaren and Alpine over who will hire young Oscar Piastri in 2023. Alpine believes it has the right to retain Piastri due to the significant investment Renault has made in the young Australian.

Although it seems all but confirmed that Piastri is McLaren’s first choice, Zak Brown admits he’s not putting all his eggs in one basket.

“We have several plans,” Brown told SpeedCity Broadcasting. There is a CRB meeting that took place. I think we will be in a better position to comment on it after we get the results of the meeting”

“We have a variety of options and of course Piastri’s is why we are invited to this meeting. Let’s just see how it goes and we’ll make a decision from there. »adds the American.
