McLaren Racing today announced a new multi-year partnership with VMware, a leading provider of multi-cloud services for all apps, as an Official Partner of the McLaren Formula 1 Team.
The technology-driven partnership connects two brands who value excellence in their respective fields, with VMware empowering McLaren’s operations throughout the F1 season for the team to stay connected and efficient at locations around the world.
VMware will help McLaren manage, connect, protect, and deliver cloud-based apps the team relies on both at-track and at the McLaren Technology Centre. McLaren will leverage VMware’s technology to power app optimization across multiple clouds, deliver reliable connectivity and best user experience across devices.
VMware branding will be represented on the McLaren MCL36 F1 cars and race suits of McLaren F1 drivers Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo from the 2022 French Grand Prix.
Matt Dennington, Director of Partnerships, McLaren Racing, said:
“It’s fantastic to be partnering with VMware, whose technology will play a key role in connecting the McLaren F1 Team. We operate at race pace on and off-track, and this partnership will help keep us agile across the apps we need, from any device and location, to bring our best on race day.”
Laura Heisman, Chief Marketing Officer, VMware said:
“McLaren Racing and VMware share a commitment to excellence and a desire to push the boundaries of what is possible to take on the biggest challenges. Through this multi-year deal, we will help drive innovation for the McLaren F1 Team in their pursuit of a world championship.”
