The FIA has extended its contract with McLaren Applied for supply of its Standard Electronic Control Unit (SECU) in Formula One until 2030.
In a statement on the FIA website, motorsport’s governing body said that McLaren Applied has been ‘selected for the sole supply of the Standard Electronic Control Unit (SECU) in the 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029 and 2030 seasons of the FIA Formula One World Championship.’
McLaren Applied has provided the SECU – a fundamental part of the Formula 1 electronic ecosystem – for every car on the F1 grid since 2008. The new agreement will extend the partnership into its 22nd year, demonstrating the sustained levels of innovation and excellence delivered by the Woking-based company.
