Following the introduction of biofuel-powered trucks last year, the number of trucks has more than doubled to a total of 37 trucks this year.

The German logistics company is commemorating 20 years as the Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1 by extending the agreement, making it the sport's longest-standing global partner.

Each truck reportedly achieves, on average, an 83% reduction in carbon emissions compared to their diesel-driven counterpart.                                                                       

The DHL Motorsports logistics team comprises 100 specialists, with up to half of them working onsite.

A new DHL motorhome will be introduced for selected European races on the Formula 1 calendar, which will serve as the designated home base for the team.

The motorhome is equipped with solar panels, charging and recycling stations and will be transported using a biofuel-powered truck.
