The Formula One team McLaren has signed a sponsorship agreement with the beverage manufacturer Coca-Cola. This was announced by the racing stadium on Thursday in advance of the US Grand Prix in Austin.
The postponement applies first of all to the four remaining races this season, but could be extended beyond the end of the season.
Under the agreement the world-famous Coca-Cola logo will be visible on the windscreens of the McLaren vehicles.
In addition we will be seen at the Fernando Alonso races, Stoffel Vandoorne and Lando Norris for the Dasani and SmartWater subsidiaries.
It will be the first time that the Coca-Cola logo appears on a Formula One car. Although the company sponsored the Lotus team a few years ago, at that time with the Energydrink Burn.
Coca-Cola looks back on a long history of sponsorship and a number of innovative activities. We are honoured that the company has chosen a partnership with McLaren in order to explore possibilities in formula 1,”says McLaren boss Zak Brown. Formula 1 as a sport is changing, as are we as a team, and we look forward to bringing Coca-Cola closer to the potential of our team and of fantastic, global sport.”
