Tyler Alexander

McLaren legend Tyler Alexander, one of the founding members of the team, is being treated in hospital for an illness.

The American, who originally joined as a mechanic before rising through the ranks, was taken unwell last week.

A McLaren spokesman said: "We can confirm that Tyler has been taken ill.

"He was admitted to hospital last week, is undergoing tests, and is receiving the best possible care."

Although Alexander retired from McLaren in 2009, he has kept in close contact with the team and recently published a photographic book, 'Inside McLaren', about his experiences.

McLaren expressed its hope that he makes a quick recovery.

The team tweeted: "Best wishes to McLaren legend Tyler Alexander, who's in hospital at the moment. #GetWellSoonBuddy"
