McLaren will enter a team in Extreme E next year in what organisers hailed as a major step forward for the all-electric off-road series after its debut in 2021.

McLaren Racing chief executive Zak Brown told reporters he expected it to be "commercially positive" from the first season and personnel from the Formula One team would not be involved in the project.

McLaren will be the 10th team signed up to the five-race series founded by Spaniard Alejandro Agag, with two more slots still available.
