As Official Paints and Coatings Partner, AkzoNobel is providing its Sikkens vehicle refinish products for all painted parts of the MCL35M, as well as the team’s transport, garage and accessories.
Also, the company’s Marine and Protective Coatings business is supplying Intertherm 50 heat-shielding from its International product range for critical components surrounding the engine and exhaust.
“We’re very proud to extend our successful partnership with McLaren Racing, which is driven by collaboration, innovation and the pursuit of high performance,” says Patrick Bourguignon, director of AkzoNobel’s Automotive and Specialty Coatings business. “The McLaren F1 team’s spirit and dedication to success inspire us in our endeavor to continue delivering the best products and services to all our customers.”
The McLaren F1 team will be looking to build on a 2020 campaign when it finished third in the constructor standings.
