It added that DHL, which has been sponsoring Formula 1 since 2004, will go on to back the motorsports championship in logistics as the firm transports race cars, fuel, oil, and equipment for the teams.

“We are proud to continue our unique partnership for years to come,” Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL Arjan Sissing said.

Meanwhile, Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said he was very happy to renew the DHL partnership deal.

“DHL is our longest standing global partner and we are delighted to have signed a partnership extension that demonstrates our strong and collaborative relationship,” Domenicali said.
