Kaspersky Lab, an official sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, congratulates the team on its magnificent results at the Spanish Grand Prix.

We congratulate both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa on their podium places. They are really talented drivers who fight hard and a have great desire to win. We are proud to have our logo on their cars and to be associated with Scuderia Ferrari.

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.
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.
