All at McLaren are saddened to hear of the passing of 2006 MotoGP champion, Nicky Hayden.
Zak Brown (McLaren Technology Group Executive Director) said:
“On behalf of all at McLaren, I want to extend our deepest sympathy and most profound condolences to the family and many friends of Nicky Hayden, who we are extremely saddened to hear has succumbed to his injuries.
“The global motorsport community is just that – a community – and we support one another in times of trouble. So, although McLaren has never been involved in motorcycle racing, we recognise fellow braves. And that, indubitably, is what Nicky Hayden was: a brave, fast, brilliant rider; a champion in 2006; but, more important, a truly great guy, admired and respected by everyone who knew him.
“May he rest in peace.”
