McLaren Racing has agreed a technical partnership with equipment manufacturer Alpinestars.
- Supply contract covers Formula One, IndyCar, Formula E, Extreme E, and F1 Academy
- Alpinestars becomes the team’s official partner for technical clothing
It seemed only a matter of time before this Alpinestars deal would be officially confirmed after driver Oscar Piastri wore an unbranded suit from the manufacturer during end-of-season Formula One testing in 2023, while the company was already partnered with the Formula E team. This new arrangement brings to a close a 27-year relationship between McLaren and Sparco.
Matt Dennington, executive director for partnerships and accelerator, McLaren Racing, said: “With Alpinestars as our new official partner for technical clothing, we’re excited to bring a new look across our McLaren Racing teams this 2024 season. We’re proud to outfit our drivers and crew members in their advanced technical gear.”
Alpinestars will make its competitive debut with McLaren Racing at this weekend’s season-opening Formula E race in Mexico City on 13th January.
