The McLaren F1 team has managed to steal a sponsor from Mercedes with Monster Energy. Monster is a direct competitor of Red Bull and was a sponsor of Mercedes for 14 years.
“We are delighted to announce that we will be working with the iconic Monster Energy from next season,” said McLaren CEO Zak Brown. “Monster is focused on celebrating athletes through bold ideas and creating great content. We can’t wait to explore new ideas and find new ways to connect with our fans.”
Despite the switch from Mercedes to McLaren, it is believed that Monster Energy will still remain a personal sponsor of Lewis Hamilton. We will probably still see the green M on Lewis Hamilton’s F1 helmet next year.
