The British Formula One team confirmed the sad news on Sunday morning.
A statement ahead of the Azerbaijan GP said: “It is with deep sadness that McLaren Racing announces the death of Mansour Ojjeh, shareholder of McLaren since 1984.
“Mr Ojjeh passed away peacefully this morning in Geneva, aged 68, surrounded by his family.
“All at McLaren Racing mourn his loss together with his family, to whom the team sends its most heartfelt condolences.”
Ojjeh first ventured into racing in 1979 when his father’s TAG company sponsored Williams before Ron Dennis convinced him to invest in McLaren.
In his McLaren career, the team won ten F1 drivers’ championships and nine constructors’ titles.
Niki Laudi, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and Lewis Hamilton all reigned supreme.
Saudi-French Ojjeh, who graduated in 1974 with a business administration degree from Menlo College, California, stepped back from his place on the McLaren boards and was replaced by his son Sultan.
