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.

I thought Zak was nothing more than a businessman who ran an F1 team but he has impressed me with his leadership and putting the right people in the right positions. He even had more racing knowledge than I realized

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.

Zak is the man I think who made usa and uk reunite. . McLaren has lots of history in us like in Trans am . So I love us fans and McLaren meeting together. This team is better than some teams like Mercedes in terms of fans . Especially they have best site for corporate and racing seperate
This was an amazing podcast learning more about Zak Brown, but I can't wait for the podcast with Sebastian Vettel! I genuinely thought there was already a podcast out there starring Sebastian, but clearly not, so like I said, can't wait for that podcast😄

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.

Zak is an amazing guy/boss. I could lieten to him all day long. Spoilers When i heard seb’s voice at the end my eyes just lightened up. I’ll be waiting for that

Zak saying hopefully Lando and Daniel sees Sainz in the rear view reminds me of Max's comment from the Netflix series after Daniel left RedBull.

I didn’t think Zak was going to do anything meaningful at McLaren. I was wrong. He comes across as being full of &*#$(‘a but in fact he’s proven that he walks the walk and is an effective manager.

You can easily see how likable he is on the grid by the way Lando jumped in him after his podioum.

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 Napja
@Chris McLaren do you mean Hamilton disobeying Team orders already in Monaco and then again in Hungary? Or do you just want to cherry pic Facts?
Chris McLaren
@kessu83 it's a well known fact... It happened in Hungary after the drama in qualifying between alonso and hamilto
kessu83 Napja
@Chris McLaren Sure you were there and knows the details first hand.
Chris McLaren
Btw Alonso: of course he's considered a toxic person. He literally blackmailed Ron Dennis with the spy-gate in which he (alonso) was one of the main protagonist!

It really was tough as a McLaren fan to see Zak come in and Ron leave with the team in serious disarray and I'll admit I was so wrong for doubting him in the early stages. Thank you Zak you have done us proud and I'm proud as a fan for all the work you've done to bring us all back together as a team 👌

That story about Andretti, Newey and him. That is wild. That moment is worth what he paid. As I finish this, I already loved this guy. He's the type of person as a leader every person should experience in their life. I'm all in for being a McLaren fan as long as he is there.

Zak is a REAL down to earth character with the MIDAS touch...... it's no wonder the McLaren team get on so well, with such a friendly atmosphere. That perfectly balanced harmony, is going to take them far, and I genuinely wish them a very successful climb to the top.
