Formula 1 signed a partnership agreement with Motorola on the eve of the 2022 season. Of course, Motorola’s hardware devices, as well as Lenovo’s high-performance computing and server solutions, will be integrated into all of the organization’s operations.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for long to see partnership in action. The upcoming 2022 season will begin this weekend.

As part of a long-term partnership, the company’s technologies will be used in all Formula One operations, both in F1 HQ and in races. The technologies will be used for several purposes, including the operation of local data collection solutions, the production of higher quality content and the support of language programs. It is reported that Formula 1 also plans to use Motorola and Lenovo hardware, as well as revolutionary technologies such as augmented and virtual reality.
Earlier this year, Formula 1 announced the expansion of its commitment to employment and education opportunities for underrepresented groups in the form of ten engineering fellowships each year until 2025.
By the way, the chairman of VTB Bank Andriy Kostin said that the commercial owners of Formula 1 did not return the advance payment for the 2022 Russian Grand Prix. The stage at the Sochi Autodrome was supposed to take place in late September, but due to Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, the contract was terminated. “Rosgonki made an advance payment for the event and cannot receive this amount back,” Kostin said. The head of VTB also ruled out the return of Formula 1 to Russia in the current situation.
Meanwhile, another major tech company, Oracle, recently announced that it has become the title sponsor of the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team. Cloud Company and Red Bull Racing have introduced a new team name – Oracle Red Bull Racing.
