On the 2022 Miami Grand Prix on Sunday, May 8th, OKX branding will “be carried on the rear wing, front wing, mirrors, cockpit side, nose, and inner halo of the McLaren MCL36 F1 cars, on the race suits and helmets of McLaren F1 drivers Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, and on the McLaren F1 Team kit and McLaren Shadow Team kit.”

We innovate on our platform every day, ensuring the highest trade execution speed to our users, requiring ‘pit-like’ team collaboration and instincts.”

Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing, remarked:

In a rapidly-evolving field, OKX is a long-established crypto brand that brings innovation, analytics and accuracy to accomplish great things. The first-ever Miami Grand Prix is the perfect occasion for us to launch this significant partnership, through which we will collaborate with OKX to take our fan experience to all new levels.”

OKX is “a place where people can trade, invest, and hold thousands of cryptos, digital assets and collectibles.”

In 2021, the total trading volume on the platform “increased more than 700%, while the number of trades executed on the platform increased 480%.”

As noted in a release, OKX is a cryptocurrency exchange and a “self-custody ecosystem.”

Beyond the OKX Exchange, MetaX is their DeFi portal “into the world of Web 3.0, metaverse gaming, NFTs and the decentralized economy.”

As mentioned in the update,  McLaren Racing was “founded by New Zealand racing driver Bruce McLaren in 1963.”

The team “entered its first Formula 1 race in 1966, since then McLaren has won 20 Formula 1 world championships, more than 180 Formula 1 grands prix, the Indianapolis 500 three times, and the Le Mans 24 Hours at its first attempt.”

The team competes in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship with Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, “the NTT INDYCAR Series with Arrow McLaren SP drivers Pato O’Ward and Felix Rosenqvist, and the Extreme E Championship with Emma Gilmour and Tanner Foust.”

McLaren was “the first F1 team to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard in 2010 and has retained it since on a bi-annual basis, most recently in February 2021.”

The team was also “the first in F1 to be given the FIA Sustainability Accreditation Award at a three-star level in 2013 as part of the FIA Environmental Certification framework, before becoming a signatory to the UN Sports for Climate Action Commitment in 2021.”
