McLaren Racing and Gulf International have ended their partnership with the end of the 2022 F1 season with no renewal.

Having joined hands in 2020, McLaren and Gulf will not continue its partnership beyond the 2022 F1 season as they have confirmed in an announcement. Their contract was due to end in 2022 and they have decided not to renew their deal.

The current deal saw them also run the iconic livery during the 2021 Monaco GP which was an instant hit especially on the merchandise side. McLaren had to re-stock and re-start selling after initial stock was sold out very quickly.

It is unclear if Gulf is moving to any other F1 team but on social media, they noted as ‘stay tuned’ when a fan asked if they will switch teams. “Our long-standing relationship with Gulf has featured throughout the history of McLaren Racing,” said Zak Brown.

“We have recorded so many iconic moments together, including our celebrated Monaco livery in 2021. Although this feels like a natural end point to the partnership, there is always room to welcome back old friends as we have done previously.”

At the same time, Mike Jones from Gulf Oil added: “We are extremely proud of what we have achieved with McLaren during our historic partnership. While we have shared many incredible moments, including the iconic Monaco livery and our bespoke sell-out merchandise collections, the true reward came from engaging with the unparalleled passion of the fans and putting them at the heart of everything we did. We will look back with great fondness at all the memories we made and are excited for what the future has in store.”
