Team Principals

As well as learning about the business side of Formula 1, we also heard from several Team Principals about the challenges of running a team at the highest level. McLaren CEO Zak Brown made guest appearances in Italy and the USA to talk about his plans to get the British team back to the front of the grid, while Force India CEO Otmar Szafnauer made special appearances in the Champions Club in Japan and Mexico.

Senior members of the Haas F1 Team also came along to the Haas Hangout at Circuit of The Americas. In addition to drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean, our fans at the trackside barbeque for the only US-based Formula 1 team also got to meet team owner Gene Haas and Team Principal Guenther Steiner. In their third year at the highest level, Haas finished a credible fifth in the 2018 constructors’ standings, with 93 points.

Michael Andretti also joined us for Lunch with a Legend at Circuit of The Americas on US Grand Prix weekend. The American, who partnered Ayrton Senna for one season of Formula 1 in 1993 after winning the IndyCar crown, now runs successful teams in IndyCar and Formula E.
