Now several race weekends into its debut season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, we are pleased to announce a new Principal Partner in the shape of NEOM.
This long-term agreement offers opportunities for knowledge transfer and for further education and training in the NEOM region in the northwest of Saudi Arabia. The development of young racing drivers is also a key element.
The agreement provides for selected candidates from Saudi Arabia to be given the opportunity to work closely with the racing team and further qualify as engineers and software developers.
In parallel, the development programme for talented junior drivers is due to start in early 2021. The aim is to discover and bring on young talent who could make the step up to Formula E within the next few years.
NEOM branding will feature on both Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E cars and the team kit beginning at the next round of the all-electric championship.
