Interestingly, this is only a return to previous tie-ups as Gulf Oil and McLaren's association in F1 dates back to 1968 and till the end of the 1973 season. The partnership saw several wins on the race track - both F1 and Can-Am series. In the 1990s, the partnership was renewed for the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race with McLaren F1 GTR sporting Gulf colours through the course of that decade. "We are delighted to welcome Gulf Oil back to McLaren and reunite two iconic brands back together in a new and exciting partnership," said Zak Brown, CEO at McLaren Racing.
