Racing Force Group and Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team are pleased to announce the start of a multi-year partnership in which the famous OMP brand becomes the new official racewear supplier for the iconic British team at the start of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship .
Starting from the 2024 season, regular drivers Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll, as well as reserve and test drivers, will use OMP products including the top-of-the-range ONE-SL suit, combined with tailor-made gloves, shoes and underwear to satisfy their safety, performance and comfort requirements. The team’s mechanics will also be equipped and protected by OMP materials, with special fireproof suits and shoes that will help them perform at the highest level during the pit stops.
The Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team completed an excellent 2023 season, with eight podium finishes and 280 points collected, which allowed them to reach fifth place in the Constructors’ standings.
The launch of the AMR24, the new car of the Silverstone-based team, is set for 12 February 2024 and will also represent the first opportunity to admire the new racewear created by OMP for the drivers of the Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team.
The next FIA Formula 1 World Championship will start with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 2, preceded by the official pre-season tests from February 21 to 23.
Stephane Cohen, Co-CEO of Racing Force Group, commented: “The history of the OMP brand in Formula 1, the pinnacle of motorsport, began more than forty years ago, and continues now with this new partnership with the prestigious team Aston Martin F1. They are an ambitious and fast-growing team, as already demonstrated in 2023, and we are excited to support them for the technical and marketing opportunities that will arise. We have used all the knowledge and experience of our research and development department to provide industry-leading equipment for protection, lightness and performance. The products will also strengthen the team’s visual identity.”

In a sport where every detail counts, we share a commitment to the pursuit of uncompromising performance and safety at every level, and we trust that our drivers and mechanics can benefit from industry-leading OMP racewear as we approach the new season.”
