Pato O'Ward has signed a new contract with McLaren

"I couldn't be more excited to sign this deal with the team," O'Ward said. "McLaren has become home for me, and I am proud that I'll be racing in papaya for a few more years at least."

Arrow McLaren's team principal, Gavin Ward, highlighted O'Ward's pivotal role in the team's development.

"It's been great to see Pato and the team grow together. We're thrilled to continue racing with him, and I look forward to showing the racing world what we can achieve as a group," Ward said.

"Having this done and dusted before the start of the season means the No. 5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet crew can go into the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg free from distraction and with one goal in mind: to execute each race weekend to the fullest of our potential."
