Dutch brewing company Heineken® has been announced as the title sponsor of Formula 1®’s Australian Grand Prix, which will take place at the Albert Park Grand Prix circuit between 7th – 10th April 2022.
The official title for the event will be the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022, and adds to Heineken’s existing title sponsorships of races in the Netherlands, Mexico and Brazil. Heineken®, a Global Partner of Formula 1® since 2016, is exclusive beer partner for the entire racing calendar, and reinforces Heineken’s commitment to responsible alcohol consumption in an innovative and compelling way.
