Logistics partner of the world's largest racing competition
DHL has been a global partner of Formula 1® for almost forty years. This makes us the proud record holder. We transport 1,400 tons of race cars, fuel and equipment to racetracks around the world. Our motorsport logistics specialists work closely with the teams and Formula 1® management. In this way, we provide seamless logistical support during official test drives and races in the largest motorsport competition in the world.
DHL Fastest Lap Award
Formula 1® is all about speed. Over the entire race, but also per lap. The driver who sets the fastest lap during the race receives an additional championship point. And whoever has driven the most fastest laps at the end of the season receives the DHL Fastest Lap Award. Enough reason to quickly put on a new set of tires at the end of the race.
The perfect tire change
DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award
You don’t win in Formula 1® without the perfect pit stop. Ironclad planning, hair-trigger cooperation and absolute precision come together to send the car back onto the track in a flash – with new tires or even a whole new front wing. Formula 1® is a true team sport, and this is best showcased in those few seconds when the car is stationary. The team with the very fastest pit stop receives the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award.
Sustainability through green logistics
As an organization with a global reach, DHL aims to create a positive movement around the world. We do this together with our partners. DHL has extensive experience in green logistics and, with Formula 1®, is always looking for new ways to reduce our collective footprint. Formula 1® aims to be fully climate neutral by 2030. As a green partner, we are of course happy to contribute to this.
