McLaren F1 team land DP World partnership

Emirati company to support British outfit's logistics operations.

McLaren Racing have confirmed a partnership with logistics company DP World.


  • DP World will support McLaren Racing's logistics operation
  • Logistics company also becomes lead partner of McLaren Apex

Context: DP World was previously the title sponsor of the Alpine Formula One team in 2020 during their days under the Renault name. This marks the Emirati company's first Formula One collaboration since then. As part of the deal, DP World also becomes lead partner of McLaren Apex, McLaren's off-track business-to-business event programme.

Comment: Zak Brown, chief executive of McLaren Racing, said: “We are thrilled to welcome DP World to the McLaren family. Logistics is a significant challenge in a global sport like Formula One, and DP World’s smart solutions will help us enhance the efficiency of our partner and supply chain network, contributing to performance on and off the track.”

Coming next: DP World branding will be visible on the cars and driver overalls for the first time at McLaren's official launch on 13th February.
