With the installation of our PRY-CAM monitoring system in the team’s garage to monitor energy consumption and quality we have taken a first step to make it happen”.

“Since beginning the partnership with Prysmian Group in January 2023, it has been an incredible journey to claiming the World Driver’s Championship. Their support and shared passion for innovation and sustainability throughout this Season have been instrumental in driving us towards this Championship triumph.
