Emirates To Sponsor F1

Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:28 pm

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-0...ula-one-sponsorship-agreement.html

I was wondering, does this mean I will be able to shoot Etihad without that annoying rear fuselage advert on every single aircraft? Conversely will we be seeing an A388 special scheme. Anyone know?

Will Etihad's A6-EHJ be getting a respray into standard colours?

The link says it won't affect the races in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain that already have sponsors (Etihad and Gulf respectively), so I'm guessing no.

Now we know where the Paddock Club hostesses will get their training and outfit from...

This is a general branding effort, I expect, like Santander Bank (and Marlboro in the old days).

I see Rolex has replaced Qantas as title sponsor for the Australian Grand Prix this year.

I noticed Airbus sponsors the Caterham F1 team, wonder in what form? Seems a bit strange it will help them sell airplanes, perhaps the Caterham team has a deal to use some of their (windtunnel) facilities?

Not a sportsperson I see. I think you'll find the main reason for Airbus sponsorship is that the owners of Caterham also owns one of Asia's largest airlines and is a big Airbus customer...
Say hello to Mr Fernandes again hehe.

And if I am correctly informed Airbus also has a corporate box at Loftus Road.
I doubt its because the people working for Airbus UK happens to be big QPR supporters...

I wonder if there is any interest to take this further and bring the race to Dubai as well.

Dubai Grand Prix. F1 has allowed two races from one nation before, and usually gone with European Grand Prix, or similar, but no need to now as the other race is Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (rather than UAE Grand Prix).

I wouldn't be surprised, unless Abu Dhabi has some sort of exclusivity deal in place.

Before and now. This year there were supposed to be 2 GP's in the USA: Austin and NY. But NY has now been delayed and moved to 2014.

my employer, currently the main sponsor of F1, is considering dropping sponsorship. apparently the current CEO is not a fan of F1, or at least as big of a fan as the previous CEO who signed the deal.

Indeed, corporate sponsorship of sporting events in particular provides companies with unique opportunities to impress potential clients and reward the loyalty of existing ones. I have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed the hospitality of a global logistics company at football matches on a couple of occasions and whilst their price and service levels inform my decision making, fond memories of enjoyable occasions can't help but have an influence!
