• Legendary motorsport innovators Sparco to supply Oracle Red Bull Racing with full suite of high performance racewear
  • Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez to benefit from cutting-edge material design and construction in the shape of Superleggera overalls, Arrow Biotech gloves & X-light+ shoes  
  • Oracle Red Bull Racing Race Team to be equipped with Competition overalls and Tide Meca gloves 
Oracle Red Bull Racing is pleased to announce that legendary racewear manufacturer Sparco is to join the Team as Technical Racewear Partner, providing Formula One World Champion Max Verstappen, multiple Grand Prix winner Sergio Pérez and Oracle Red Bull Racing’s trackside crew with a full range of cutting-edge products that meet the highest safety FIA standards.
Founded in Turin in 1977, the Sparco name has become synonymous with motorsport safety and performance. The new Superleggera suit, homologated to the FIA 8856-2018 standard, was created as a natural evolution of Sparco’s historic Superleggera suit, which in the early 2000s offered a compound that not only complied with the FIA 8856-2000 standard but stood as the lightest suit of its time, weighing some 20% less than comparable suits. 
Max and Checo’s new Superleggera suits will be complemented with X-Light+ shoes, Arrow Biotech gloves and Sparco underwear, all in the Team’s distinctive design and featuring iconic Oracle Red Bull Racing branding – offering performance gains through industry-leading weight reduction technology.
The Race Team members will be equipped with a dedicated line of products derived from Sparco’s Competition overalls and Tide Meca gloves in order to meet all of the comfort and safety requirements according to the Team’s specific design and performance needs.
Christian Horner, Oracle Red Bull Racing Team principal and CEO said: “Ensuring that our drivers and our Race Team are kept as safe as possible is always our first priority. Sparco has been at the forefront of racewear safety for more than four decades and we’re delighted to welcome them to the Team. The fact that their dedication to safety is matched by the pursuit of performance and lightness, key considerations in racing, makes the collaboration even more exciting.”
Aldino Bellazzini, Sparco President and CEO added: “Sparco is a technologically driven corporation characterized by continuous research and development to meet all the best performance, safety and quality standards. We look at this partnership as an opportunity to further challenge ourselves. This is the reason behind the long-term collaborations and partnerships we have already developed with several different players in motorsport. We strongly believe that Oracle Red Bull Racing will represent a huge opportunity for Sparco to continue and progress on this path and we are honoured they have chosen Sparco for the upcoming season and beyond”.
