A racing team is not just about the guys at the track, or the drivers in the car, or the people in the factory, or our Partners; it also needs the commitment of our Suppliers. We have built an unbreakable team spirit thanks to your support and we are all very proud to be one small part of that process..."

"Thank you- those are the only worthy words to begin this email… It is sometimes hard to explain to people outside our sport what a team effort Formula One is. You need no explanation. There is an incredible dynamic within our team, and that comes from the combination of our owners, our suppliers, our team members and our drivers. It is a privilege to be able to share this achievement with you."
