Renault F1 Team confirms partnership with Lada
The Renault F1 Team today confirmed a cooperation agreement that will see branding from Lada,
Russia’s leading automotive marque, feature on the chassis of the Renault F1 Team R30 race
cars during the 2010 season.
Lada branding will also appear on the overalls and team uniform of 25-year-old Vitaly Petrov, who
will make history this year as the first ever Russian F1 driver.
This landmark agreement was formally signed in Moscow last Monday, March 1. Russian Prime
Minister Vladimir Putin also gave the agreement his public endorsement.
“We are proud to announce this new agreement, which marks another important step for the
Renault F1 Team and Formula 1 in Russia,” commented Renault F1 Team Chairman Gerard
“Through Mangrove Capital we have been actively investing in Russia over the last years. We
know the country well, we have a high degree of appreciation for it and, as such, it is an honour for
our F1 team to spearhead Russia’s entry into the sport and to carry the Lada brand at the highest
level of world motorsport. We look forward to an exciting and successful season together.”
