The World’s Fastest Logistics Race

Few sports conjure up the heady mix of speed, glamour and verve as intensively as Formula 1 - the world’s premier motorsports series. Since its inaugural race in 1950, the allure of seeing the most highly skilled drivers in the world reach record-breaking speeds has thrilled fans across the globe, from Britain to Bahrain and from Mexico to Japan. Behind the glamour and va-va voom, thousands of unsung heroes help to make it all possible, not least the DHL Motorsports team. As Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1, DHL draws on over 35 years’ experience handling complex, time-critical, international motorsports logistics.
