Supporting Formula 1 going racing in a year of Covid

Going into 2020, with Formula 1 celebrating its 70th anniversary season, Procurement’s most significant challenge was expected to be requirements linked to 2 new races on the calendar in the Netherlands and Vietnam, although the onset of COVID-19 was to radically change that. 

Agility and efficiency were crucial, as we rose to the challenge in helping Formula 1 become the first major sport to be back operating internationally, and ultimately running a dramatically revised 17 race calendar in 23 weeks in the second half of 2020, and despite the huge logistical challenge involved in staging just one of these events.
