  Caterham F1 Team Announce Sibur As First Russian Team Partner

Hingham, UK - 20 February 2012

Caterham F1 team has today announced that it has signed a deal with SIBUR  to be an official Team Partner. SIBUR, the largest petrochemical company in Russia and Eastern Europe, has also confirmed that it is continuing the partnership agreement it began in 2011 with Vitaly Petrov in his new role as Race Driver for the Anglo / Malaysian Caterham F1 Team. The SIBUR logo will feature on the CT01 cars and on Vitaly’s race suits throughout the 2012 season.

Tony Fernandes: “We are delighted to welcome SIBUR into our team and to help them continue their relationship in F1 with Vitaly, and now with Caterham F1 Team. F1 is a truly global sport, and SIBUR’s investment in our sport is proof of the value F1 can bring, on a national and international level, so we are looking forward to working closely with Mr Konov and his team at SIBUR to help them realize maximum benefit from this partnership.”

Dmitry Konov, CEO of SIBUR: I’m very glad that Vitaly’s career in Formula One is continuing with such an exciting new role at Caterham F1 Team. Vitaly plays a very important role for us, and all Russians. Formula One mixes cutting edge technology and the highest level of competition, and these are concepts SIBUR understands very well. We understand how big a challenge it is to succeed  in such an intense environment, and to maintain mastery of the conditions whilst always being at the very forefront of technical progress. That is why we are glad to give Vitaly and Caterham F1 Team our support. It is a real pleasure for us to continue our partnership in 2012, when Russia – thanks to Petrov as well – takes another step closer to Formula One.
