McLaren teams up with BP and Castrol

Multinational oil and gas company BP and its lubricant brand Castrol have partnered with Formula One motor-racing team McLaren-Honda.

Under the agreement, BP and Castrol will provide fuels and lubricant technology to McLaren-Honda and McLaren Automotive, the company’s sports car manufacturing division.

The length of the deal was not disclosed, but the agreement will at least cover the 2017 F1 season.

McLaren-Honda will also benefit from Castrol’s high-performance lubricants and greases, which will be used in the team’s machine shop and dynamic chassis rig.

BP and Castrol last month agreed a similar deal with McLaren’s F1 rival Renault.
