Official: Petrobras and Mclaren Discontinue Cooperation
Mclaren officially confirmed today that the Woking team and Brazilian oil company Petrobras have terminated their cooperation.
The Brazilian authorities have long feverishly sought a way out of a contract last year by the Petrobras oil company with the Mclaren team. Both sides reached an amicable agreement, and Petrobras finally left Mclaren today.
The state-owned Brazilian oil giant has signed a sponsorship deal with McLarn 150. million dollars, which he wanted to break after a bad year of involvement.
Brazilian Prime Minister Jair Bolsonaro confirmed to Brazil last year his intention to terminate the contract.
“Petrobras has signed a five-year contract with McLarn, and the Brazilian government is doing everything it can to break that deal. It is absolutely absurd to pay that amount for that small inscription on the helmet. This contract is meaningless and harmful to Petrobras and Brazil. “
After long negotiations, Mclaren and Petrobras reached an agreement to suspend cooperation, and Petrobras left the legendary British team after the end of the race for the US Grand Prix.
