McLaren will carry logos of Google brands on its bodywork and wheel covers in a new sponsorship deal with the technology giant.
Google’s Android browser will be promoted on the engine cover of the teams MCL36s. In a first, the Chrome browser logo will be displayed on on the cars’ wheel covers.
McLaren tested a system of illuminated LEDs during post-season testing in Abu Dhabi last year for this purpose.
Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, said he was proud of the new deal, which will also include the team’s Extreme E operation.
“Google is a global leader in technology and has been a ground-breaking innovator in connecting people around the world,” he said. “By integrating platforms like Android and Chrome across our operations, our team will be better supported to focus on driving performance. We’re looking forward to an exciting partnership that spans across Formula 1 and Extreme E.”
