McLaren Racing's Extreme E team have announced a multi-year partnership with online trading platform Vantage.

Beginning from the team's 2022 season debut, Vantage will receive branding on McLaren Racing's Extreme E car and on the race suits of drivers Emma Gilmour and Tanner Foust.

"We’re delighted to partner with Vantage ahead of our first season competing in Extreme E," said Zak Brown, chief executive at McLaren Racing.

"It’s crucial that we work with partners who reflect our team’s values, and Vantage shares our commitment to sustainability, innovation and performance.

"Racing in Extreme E marks an exciting new chapter for McLaren Racing, and our partnership with Vantage supports us in taking this important step in expanding our racing portfolio while accelerating our learnings in sustainability."

McLaren fans in France will be able to watch the 2022 Extreme E season on BeIN Sports after the pay-TV broadcaster signed a non-exclusive rights deal with the series.

BeIN will air all races live, in addition to broadcasting highlights shows and Extreme E's 20-part magazine programme, Electric Odyssey.

The deal adds to BeIN's existing broadcast partnerships with the series that cover the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, as well as South East Asia.

Extreme E's second season begins on 20th February in Neom, Saudi Arabia.
