DHL and Formula 1 have renewed their multi-year partnership ahead of the start of the new racing season.

DHL will transport race cars, fuel and oil, equipment for the racing teams, and transmission technology, across 23 countries.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO, Formula 1 said: “DHL is our longest standing global partner. “For the past 16 years we have delivered on and off the track together.”

Arjan Sissing, Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL added: “For more than four decades, our common values connect us with each other and made it possible to win any logistics races around the world, before the first tires touch the track. We are looking forward to defend our title in each of these races between the races.”
