McLAREN have become the first Formula One team to furlough staff during the coronavirus pandemic, with remaining employees taking a wage cut.
Drivers Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz are among those taking a pay cut, with the aim of “protecting jobs in the short-term.”
The Woking-based team said in a statement: “The McLaren Group is temporarily furloughing a number of employees as part of wider cost-cutting measures due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on its business.
“These measures are focused on protecting jobs in the short term to ensure our employees return to full-time work as the economy recovers.”
The F1 calendar for the opening part of the 2020 season has been wiped out due to the virus, with a decision on the fate of July's British Grand Prix expected soon.
