Kaspersky Lab Congratulates Scuderia Ferrari on 1st Place in China
15 Apr 2013
Kaspersky Lab, the official sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, is happy to congratulate Scuderia Ferrari racing team on its success at the Formula 1 UBS Chinese Grand Prix. This weekend Fernando Alonso delivered Scuderia Ferrari’s first win of the season. He took the checkered flag in Shanghai after an action-packed and tactically absorbing race.
Commenting on this great result, Alexander Moiseev, Kaspersky Lab’s Deputy CSMO, Business operation Europe, said: “We are always happy to see such great results of Scuderia and Fernando Alonso! Our sponsorship of Ferrari is now in its fourth season and, of course, it’s more than just business – their results are an inspiration to us. Scuderia Ferrari and Kaspersky Lab share core values of speed, high technology and innovation – and we hope these qualities will bring even more success for Ferrari in the 2013 season!”
About the sponsorship:
Kaspersky Lab entered the world of motor racing in May 2010, sponsoring the AF Corse team – involved in the Le Mans Series with Ferrari GT cars – and assuming the position of ‘Official Supplier’ to Scuderia Ferrari. Half a year later Kaspersky Lab became an ‘Official Sponsor’ of the team: Kaspersky Lab’s logo appeared on Ferrari’s Formula One cars.
The companies have also released a co-branded product: Kaspersky Internet Security Special Ferrari Edition. This security solution comes with a Ferrari-style user interface and the Ferrari Virtual Academy video simulator game to align Kaspersky Lab’s best-of-breed anti-malware technologies with the world-famous image of Scuderia Ferrari.
As part of the expanded sponsorship agreement, the Kaspersky Lab logo features prominently on the nose cone and sides of Scuderia Ferrari’s F1 cars throughout the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
