McLaren and its former F1 team principal Martin Whitmarsh has now officially parted company.

Whitmarsh was axed from his role in January following Ron Dennis returned to power as McLaren’s Group CEO.

“McLaren and Martin Whitmarsh have agreed amicably to part company,” confirmed a team spokesman to AUTOSPORT.

“The first four races this year, the team doesn’t come back,” Dennis said in March.

“With the former role of team principal, it was like being out of the company for four months.

“I defy anyone to run a company and have four months out of the company.”
