Fourth McLaren IndyCar entry on the table for 2024 – Brown

McLaren CEO Zak Brown is still keeping the door open to a potential fourth full-time Arrow McLaren IndyCar, but he admits to being surprised by some of the driver options available to him if the team does commit to expanding.

Responding to a question about whether he would take advantage of Marcus Ericsson’s looming free agent status to “steal” the 2022 Indy 500 winner from Chip Ganassi Racing, Brown said he thought it remarkable that the Swede would be available in the first place.

“First, I don’t think people steal things. I think people lose things,” Brown said.

“Marcus has done an outstanding job. I’ve known him from Formula 1 for some time. He’s very humble. He’s done an awesome job. He’s won the Indy 500; led the championship for some time. He would definitely be in the consideration if we decided to do a fourth car.
