Hamilton’s Team X44 Extreme E lands title sponsor

Lewis Hamilton’s Team X44 Extreme E has secured its first title sponsorship.

By partnering with Vida Carbon, a carbon investment company that aims to reduce greenhouse gases and emissions around the world by providing shareholders with exposure to carbon credit markets and providing capital to developers of carbon credits, the team will now be known as X44 Vida Carbon Racing.

“We are very happy to have Vida Carbon by our side as we continue our Extreme E journey,” said Sebastien Loeb, nine-time World Rally Champion and driver for X44 Vida Carbon Racing. “While there is nothing we love more than a first place finish on the podium, our team is so much more than just racing.

“X44 Vida Carbon Racing’s goal is to encourage our fans to take small steps together to have a positive impact on the planet, and a partner like Vida Carbon means we can do that.”

The partnership will kick in from Round 4 in Chile later this month and run through next season, aiming to draw attention to Vida Carbon’s forward-thinking strategies in the fight against climate change.

“Around the world, we are all feeling the direct impacts of climate change. Traditional motorsports have long been associated with a negative impact on the environment, and while many series are taking encouraging steps towards a more sustainable future, Extreme E is unique in how it addresses this issue,” said Jamie Keech, Executive Chairman of Vida. Carbon. “Our partnership with X44 is proof that sustainable practices and a net zero future are possible. Vida Carbon and X44 are working towards this future.

X44 with Loeb and Cristina Gutierrez finished the inaugural Extreme E season in second place, earning just one victory in the final round – the Jurassic X Prix in Dorset, England. The duo currently sit fourth in the standings with two podium finishes in three rounds so far.

Last season, the team also won the 2021 Series Sustainability Award, which recognizes the team that does the most to steer fans towards a greener future.
