  • Driving The Bottom Line

    F1 team McLaren "has released its financial numbers for the '11 fiscal year in which it generated a profit before taxes of €28M," according to Sylt & Reid of MOTORSPORT TOTAL. McLaren "was also able to increase its revenue by 16% to €212M." The reason for this increase was "on one hand a bigger share of F1's marketing revenue, and on the other hand a higher payment from title sponsor Vodafone." The telecom company transferred around €57.5M to the England-based team in '11, which is 15% more than the previous year. The team's profit went almost completely (€25M) into the coffers of the McLaren Group, in which Founder Ron Dennis and Bahrain-based holding company Mumtalakat each own 50%.
