Toro Rosso ‘sponsor’ CEPSA has renewed its deal to keep its logos on the Italian team’s cars and uniforms for the 2013 season.
The Spanish petroleum company – owned by the team’s minority shareholder, Aabar – has been a part of the team’s make-up since the 2011 season, and the renewed deal will again mean that CEPSA’s logos will appear on the team uniforms, as well as the nose, rear wing and rear wing endplates of the team’s to-be-launched STR8 challenger.
“Having CEPSA another season on board means a lot to Scuderia Toro Rosso,” team principal Franz Tost said.
“CEPSA is one of Spain’s leading companies and, just like Formula 1, it is expanding its operation all around the world. Although closer to home, we and CEPSA will both enjoy performing in front of their home crowd. At Scuderia Toro Rosso, we are keen to repay the confidence CEPSA has shown in us.”
CEPSA is the second of the three Aabar-owned organisations to reconfirm its ‘sponsorship’ of the team in recent days.
