The marketing geniuses down at McLaren clearing haven’t dozed off over the winter break, and have come up with a cracking sponsorship partnership for the Australian Grand Prix weekend. What better way to tap into the Halo resembling a flip-flop than to team up with a company who make flip-flops!

The logo of British lifestyle brand Gandys will appear upon the Halo in both McLaren cars, as well as collaborating for a limited “Halo-edition” flip-flop, with all profits going directly to the Orphans For Orphans charity that the Gandy brothers founded.

Bravo, McLaren!
