56 865 दृश्य

Zak Brown landed his dream job in 2016 when he became executive director, and later CEO, of McLaren - the team he’d supported as an F1-mad kid in California. On this week’s episode of Beyond the Grid, Brown discusses how he’s guiding McLaren back to the front of the grid, gives us the lowdown on his own racing career, including going toe-to-toe with the likes of Juan Pablo Montoya in F3 and discusses his epic F1 car collection.

  • I did not know anything about Zak Brown, despite being an F1 fan since the early eighties. He comes across as a genuine car guy and also someone who is honest and dedicated to all aspects of motorsport. Great interview!

  • Fantastic interview. As a decades-long McLaren fan, it is supremely encouraging to see the progress being made under Zak's leadership. I wish him and the team all the best for the future. Let's go get those wins and championships.

  • Superb interview, not least because of the huge skills of the interviewer and the great questions perfectly pitched. I'm confident Zak Brown can take McLaren back to a champion winning team, maybe over the next 3 years but this is the man to do it, in the same league as Horner & Wolff and that's what we need.

  • I think Zak should go: "To whom it may concern, F**k You!" hahahahaha He had so many doubters at the start, even from McLaren fans. He did an amazing job, starting from an under performing car / Engine and a team in turmoil. I met him a couple of times at Goodwood and F1, and he is just so casual and cool! We all need to remember that F1 is not only a sport, but it's entertainment.

  • Domenecali, Briatore and Zak Brown all said they never had any issues with Fernando. He may be a little tough to manage but If you know how to manage him he is a joy to work with atleast what these people said. But everyone claims that Nando is toxic because Ron Dennis couldn't manage both Nando and Hamilton in 2007 and british media put the whole blame on Fernando. He is a probably greatest driver of this century next to Schumacher and even that is close. But he does not have statistics to prove it. People just love to call him toxic without knowing everything. I am a Ferrari fan from years and the efforts that Alonso put in the way he drove subpar ferrari specially in 2012, I will always love him and support him.

    • @kessu83 If he were a rookie when he beat hamilton I would have said yes. But he got beaten 3 out of 4 years by a margin, he barely won 1 year out of hamilton misluck. Can’t say the same for 2007 when Hamilton shined right from the start
