GSK’s diverse partnership with McLaren extends to our drivers. Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button and Stoffel Vandoorne all benefit from MaxiNutrition’s scientific approach to maximising physical performance.
Our drivers each use a hydration formula in their McLaren Honda cars that has been specifically designed for them by the MaxiNutrition team. This unique formulation helps ensure they stay at peak cognitive and physical condition during the demands of a Grand Prix weekend.
The drink, which has been developed by working with the drivers over a period of months, contains a personalised glucose and electrolyte formulation. This provides them with their recommended amount of fluid and salts lost when racing and ensures the maintenance of blood glucose to enhance physical and cognitive performance. It is specifically formulated for each driver, as sweat rate and fluid loss vary greatly between individuals.
