As if there was any concern that Flavio Briatore would find a new sponsor to fill the void left by the soon-to-be-leaving ING. When things are tight, such as this economy, it is nice to know that sponsors are still to be found and what better place to start looking for those sponsors than in Russia?
Russia is a market of significant and growing interest to the global economy and is therefore important for Formula One. Our partnership with MegaFon will help enhance our ability to communicate with a huge number of potential Formula One fans across Russia,” Flavio Briatore said.
“It’s a great honour for us to become a partner of the ING Renault F1 Team, one of the most popular racing teams in the world. Since its foundation, MegaFon has always supported the development of sport and has sponsored the national football and hockey teams for several years. Recently we have also become the mobile provider of the XXII Olympic Winter Games to be held in Sochi in 2014,â€ CEO of MegafonKavkaz, Andrey Kraynik.
â€œThe partnership with the ING Renault F1 Team is an opportunity for MegaFon to show its capabilities on the international market. Formula One expresses the ideas close to the corporate culture of MegaFon, which are perfection, development of high technologies, good results, and striving for new victories.”
