The Workday logo will debut on track on the rear wing of the McLaren MCL38 of Formula 1 drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri in pre-season testing as a lead-up to the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 2. Workday branding will also be included on the McLaren team kits for the 2024 Formula 1 season.
This expansion further supports McLaren and Workday’s partnership, which began last year and included Workday becoming an Official Partner of the 2023 McLaren Formula 1 Team. The multi-year partnership sees McLaren continue to use Workday’s financial planning software, including Workday Adaptive Planning.
Together, Workday and McLaren Racing share a passion for cutting-edge innovation and fueling efficiency, and by using Workday’s financial planning software, McLaren is able to make faster, more informed decisions across its organisation.
Matt Dennington, Executive Director, Partnerships & Accelerator, McLaren Racing, said:
We are delighted to expand our partnership with Workday. Its solutions have hugely supported our business’s adaptability and agility in decision-making, and we are looking forward to continuing this.
Emma Chalwin, Chief Marketing Officer, Workday, said:
McLaren is a globally recognised racing team and a valued Workday customer. That’s why we’re incredibly proud to team up and grow our partnership. McLaren represents the highest standard of efficiency and planning, a focus Workday also shares. Together, we aim to empower people to adapt and perform—whether on the racetrack or in the workplace.
