The McLaren Formula 1 team will run a tribute to Mansour Ojjeh on its cars for this weekend’s French Grand Prix.
Ojjeh, a long-time shareholder in McLaren, passed away earlier this month at the age of 68.
The Paris-born Saudi billionaire’s father founded the Techniques d’Avant Garde – better known by its TAG moniker – company that formed a partnership with new McLaren boss Ron Dennis in the early 1980s, having previously had a short alliance with Williams.
Ojjeh became a shareholder in McLaren in 1984 and, alongside Dennis, was an influential presence in the team’s hierarchy through its championship-winning era.
In tribute, McLaren have added his name to their engine cover, which will feature on both Lando Norris’ and Daniel Ricciardo’s cars this weekend in France.
