The FIA has extended its contract with McLaren Applied for supply of its Standard Electronic Control Unit (SECU) in Formula 1 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 1 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.

“Motorsports remain our absolute focus, and we’re delighted to extend our partnership with the FIA for the supply of the standard SECU to all teams in F1,” said Nick Fry, chairman of McLaren Applied. “Our current SECU has done over 1,500,000km race kilometers without a reported in-race failure since its introduction in 2008 and we look forward to maintaining this exemplary record to 2030 and beyond.”
