FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – November 1, 2019Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing today announced a renewal of their innovation partnership.

It isn’t a place anymore, but a dynamic activity that happens anywhere,” said Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President of Business Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer, Citrix. “AMRBR clearly recognizes this and is using digital workspace solutions to rethink how they work at the track, the garage, the factory and everywhere in between. We are pleased to be a partner on their journey and look forward to working together with the Team to deliver the future of work and help them lap the competition.”

With Citrix technology, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing can access high-powered computing resources from anywhere in the world. This flexibility has proved vital in delivering the Team’s successes.
