This follows the announcement that McLaren Group will join the government-led ‘Your Life’ campaign, which has been designed to boost participation in science, technology, engineering and maths (the ‘STEM’ subjects).

The initiative was launched by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP, who visited the McLaren Technology Centre last week to inspect the branded McLaren Mercedes MP4-29 first hand.

During the visit, hosted by Ron Dennis CBE, the Chancellor discussed career paths available in high-technology companies with female engineers from across McLaren Group. He also met with young women from Waldergrave School, recent winners of the GSK McLaren Scientists in Sport challenge, which inspires students to continue their STEM education and take up technical careers.

Ron Dennis CBE, Chairman and Chief Executive of McLaren Group said: "The UK has a rich heritage in science and engineering. It’s no coincidence that eight Formula 1 teams are based here."

"But I want to do more. With continued government backing, I think we can grow the number of high tech firms here in the UK, we can rejuvenate our manufacturing industry, and Britain can help tackle the global challenges that confront us. To do that though, we need the brightest and best young people to study science and maths and to choose technical careers. That is why I am proud to support the Your Life campaign, and am delighted that the Your Life logo will feature on the MP4-29 at this weekend’s Santander British Grand Prix."

George Osborne said: "The Your Life campaign is part of a long term economic plan to support our high growth sectors across science, tech and engineering, by bringing together some of Britain’s best businesses, institutions and government.

"This fantastic commitment by McLaren will help inspire even more young people into well paid jobs in these exciting industries that are essential to our economic prosperity."
