Sep.12 (GMM) Andreas Seidl has played down news that McLaren’s iconic headquarters will be sold.
Reports this week claimed that the Woking based team could raise over $250 million by selling its striking McLaren Technology Centre and then leasing it back from the new owner.
The reports said McLaren might also sell a minority stake of its F1 team.
Team boss Seidl said of the factory sale: “This will have no effect on the Formula 1 team. It is simply part of the refinancing strategy.
“The daily business of the F1 team will not be affected.”
