McLaren have hired Andreas Seidl as the new boss of their Formula One operation in a bid to revive the British team's waning fortunes.

  McLaren have hired Andreas Seidl as the new boss of their Formula One operation in a bid to revive the British team's waning fortunes.

  Seidl joins McLaren as managing director and becomes the face of their F1 operation.

  McLaren, Britain's most successful F1 team, have failed to win a race in more than six years, and are in the midst of the worst run in their long history.

  Despite their poor recent record in F1, Brown is keen for McLaren to expand into other areas of motor racing, with the British team entering a car into this year's Indianapolis 500.

  'Second, concentrated senior leadership on our F1 programme is an integral part of the long-term strategy of McLaren Racing to expand into other forms of global motorsport over time.'
