Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions and sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, is pleased to congratulate Fernando Alonso on his first place finish at Hockenheim, Germany.
Alonso produced yet another stunning drive at the German Grand Prix (Großer Preis von Deutschland), to claim his third win of the season and extend his lead to over 30 points in the Drivers’ championship. His closest rival, Mark Webber, finished the race in eighth place.
Commenting on the Spaniard’s latest success, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “We’ve been sponsoring Ferrari teams for three seasons, and we avidly follow every single race. The spirit of Scuderia Ferrari is an inspiration for our company. This weekend in Germany, Fernando Alonso again turned in an amazing performance, holding on right to the end of a very tense race and making us very proud to be associated with Scuderia Ferrari. After all, we share a common set of values – aiming high, being the best and the fastest. We are also No. 1 in Germany, in consumer retail, and we are also constantly striving to be even better and never stop improving our performance!”
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, with Kaspersky Lab’s logo appearing 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.
The high-profile Kaspersky Lab logo, featured on the nose cone and on the nose sides, will be seen at all Formula One races throughout the 2012 and 2013 seasons. This is the part of the new expanded sponsorship agreement between Scuderia Ferrari racing team and Kaspersky Lab which was unveiled at the final Formula One Grand Prix of the 2011 season in São Paulo.
