McLaren Racing today announced a new multi-year partnership with Cadence Design Systems Inc., a leader in computational software, as an Official Technology Partner of the McLaren Formula 1 Team.
Cadence has more than 30 years of computational software expertise, providing software, hardware and IP that enables customers to turn design concepts into reality. The partnership joins two brands with an ongoing commitment to innovation.
McLaren will use Cadence® Fidelity™ CFD Software, a comprehensive suite of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions, to investigate airflow. The team will also leverage Cadence's computational software expertise to tackle design projects that require advanced compute power and precision.
Cadence branding will be carried on the McLaren MCL36 F1 cars from the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix.
To celebrate the partnership's launch, Cadence will also be represented on all three Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolets, and on the race suit of Arrow McLaren SP driver Juan Pablo Montoya for this year's 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Matt Dennington, Director of Partnerships, McLaren Racing, said:
