Just days after announcing that it had signed Vitaly Petrov to replace Jarno Trulli for the 2012 Grand Prix season, the Caterham F1 team has not surprisingly revealed the details of the first Russian sponsor to adorn its logos on its car’s flanks.
Sibur, the country’s largest petrochemical company, will continue its sponsorship of the Vyborg-born driver, having sponsored him last year when he drove for Lotus Renault GP.
“We are delighted to welcome Sibur into our team to help them continue their relationship in F1 with Vitaly and now with Caterham,” Team Principal Tony Fernandes said in an official team media release.
It is widely expected that the team will shortly announce details of other Russian sponsors who will come on board with the Hingham-based team.
