Logitech also now removed from the partners page. Can understand this given the other technology sponsors McLaren has. Interesting that coca-cola is still listed

Wasn’t Coca Cola a multi year deal?

Edit: Just seen that it was for 2019

The contract with Williams brought the team 15 million euros annually. I wonder what deal was made with McLaren.

With it being only described as technical and not commercial, I’m assuming there’s no cash input. Also from the press release, there’s no mention of car or team branding, as they usually state.

What technical input is Unilever bringing to McLaren? Will they be ensuring the team's outfits and table covers are properly washed? :lol: :lol:






(Unilever make a lot of washing products, amongst other things)

As part of the deal, between McLaren and Unilever will work together on projects that includes areas such as material science, sensor technology and the creation of an engineering academy.

To be fair the similar was said when BAT was announced, but let’s see I suspect branding will be on everything possible

This was the original announcement for BAT: https://www.mclaren.com/racing/partners ... n-tobacco/ no mention of branding yet it was everywhere

Echo the above comments, impossible that an agreement is signed and yet no sticker on the car! Wonder where it will be placed? My guess would be where BAT and their different brands were placed for majority of last given that BAT’s increased presence is moving to the side pod.

Let us not forget that 2 persons from the Mclaren Advisory Group are/were from Unilever. So it wasn't that surprising they would switch to Mclaren.

When asked how confident he was feeling about the upcoming first race in Australia, Norris said: "Things aren't as different as what they were last year.

"Last year was a completely different car, with a lot of mechanical problems.

"And you don't always hear about every problem that goes on in a team and in Formula 1. But we were kind of suffering a bit at the beginning of last year.

"And there was a new car. So, we were trying to get as much understanding as we could get.

"Whereas this year's car is much more of an adaptation from last year. It's just working on all of the areas.



"I [also] want to say I'm more confident in my own driving, because it's my second year in Formula 1, so I now feel a lot more confident.

"But also the team has done a very good job and [is] working on, particularly obviously the areas which we were not good [at] last year - that we were quite weak in.

"Which was almost every corner but there's still more specific corners, which we struggled in.

"So it's trying to work on those areas and, from the results I've seen, it's looking positive. It's going in the right direction, but we still need more to be really competitive."
