Formula One team McLaren Racing have signed a multi-year agreement with cybersecurity firm Immersive Labs.

As part of the deal, Immersive Labs' platform will support McLaren Racing's cyber network, providing security and development opportunities.

McLaren Racing will also use the Immersive Labs platform to provide real-time data on the cyber knowledge, skills, and judgement of both technical and non-technical teams.

In addition, both McLaren Racing MCL35M cars will feature Immersive Labs branding on the front suspension arms from the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix onwards.

Immersive Labs and McLaren Racing have also said they will co-host and run a series of experiences for executives across the term of the partnership to demonstrate the benefits of improving cyber capabilities in the workforce. The first of these events will take place during the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix race weekend.

"People and technology are critically important elements of our team, and we are excited to work with Immersive Labs to support in developing the human cyber capabilities which will empower us to better navigate risk," said Zak Brown, chief executive of McLaren Racing.

"We operate at race pace both on and off-track, and we look forward to this partnership accelerating the human element of our cyber security."
