Aramco comes to F1 Japan Grand Prix

The Formula 1® Japan Grand Prix will visit the Suzuka Circuit, a high-speed track that has proved popular with many drivers over the years following a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Aramco’s long-term global sponsorship with the international race was announced in 2020, marking the company’s first global sponsorship of a major sporting event and connecting Aramco with a worldwide audience of 500 million racing fans.

Held toward the end of the Formula 1® season, the Japan GP has developed a reputation for deciding season title-holders. Thirteen out of past 34 Japan GP winners have ultimately won the world championships.

Aramco mirrors the spirit of innovative F1 racing, with its team of dedicated researchers and engineers working to develop low-emission transport solutions to help reduce the carbon footprint from transportation.

As a company built on engineering excellence, Aramco shares a commitment to driving innovation through its work with engines and fuels to lower emissions and enhance performance. It is no surprise that many of the technologies, materials, and innovations that come from Formula 1® team competitions often end up in the cars we drive. For this reason, Aramco and Formula 1® hope to have a lasting positive impact in everyday energy challenges, and in reducing emissions in the automotive sector and beyond.

 

The Suzuka race course is 5.807 kilometers long, and the 10 teams will be competing for 53 laps to determine who is the fastest driver with the fastest engine in the fastest car in the world.

Race weekend activities include track side experiences such as Pit Lane Walks, Hot Laps, and Truck Tours. The Aramco hospitality suite in the Paddock Club area offers a unique vantage point over the team garages and pit lane with a clear view of the start and finish line.

The Formula 1® Japan Grand Prix will take place on Sunday, October 9, with drivers competing at the Suzuka International Racing Course. Valtteri Bottas was the winner of the last race in Japan in 2019, with Sebastian Vettel in second and Lewis Hamilton rounding out the podium in third.
