McLaren Racing announced on Thursday that QNTMPAY has been named official digital banking partner to the Formula One team ahead of the start of the 2021 season this weekend in Bahrain.
As part of the partnership, QNTMPAY branding will be represented on the McLaren MCL35M race cars’ cockpit surrounds and the McLaren F1 driver race suits of Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo for the 2021 season. QNTMPAY will activate the McLaren partnership through a global marketing campaign, ‘Make Your Move,’ which inspires and rewards consumers to join a bank that puts them in the driver’s seat.
Speaking about the new partnership, McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown commented saying:
QNTMPAY shares a similar passion to McLaren for redefining and improving consumer experience at every touch point. As we continue to progress as a team, we are delighted to announce this partnership with QNTMPAY, casting a spotlight on a new and exciting brand on a global stage. We look forward to entering the 2021 Formula 1 season and beyond.
Adam Pearsall, Founder, and CEO, QNTMPAY, said:
“I have created a bank built for the people – the next generation who demand more from their financial institutions. Identifying McLaren as our launch partner was an easy decision as we share the same values; both have a strong entrepreneurial DNA and are constantly innovating. We are excited to partner with McLaren to shape the future of digital banking and payments with our technology. QNTMPAY’s mission is to change people’s relationship with their money and enable them to take back control. Through partnering with McLaren, we extend our mission to a network of over 208 million fans.”
The McLaren F1 Team had a busy off-season with the arrival of Daniel Ricciardo as Lando Norris’ new team mate while Mercedes have replaced Renault as their engine provider for the upcoming season.
