Randy Singh

Season 2, Ep. 5

If you’ve ever wondered about the path to becoming the Director of Strategy and Sporting at McLaren Racing, then this one’s for you. Randy Singh’s first taste of life in Formula 1 came when undertaking his Masters project at Williams, only to go onto a career in consulting, and even moving to Australia. He then came back full circle to the Grove-based team, which would later see him move onto further strategy roles at Force India and now, McLaren. Always in pursuit of his passions and interests, some may say it was this love for what he did that naturally led Randy to where he finds himself today. During the season you’ll most likely spot him on the pit wall making the all-important race strategy calls but also looking after sporting matters, including adherence and interpretation of regulations. When not at the track, Randy leads the McLaren Engineering Graduate Scheme, helping funnel through the next generation of engineering talent in Formula 1. Together with his team, Randy's involvement with the programme has seen them strive for new ways of reaching diverse young people as well as making the recruitment process as inclusive as possible.
