Kaspersky Lab, one of the world’s fastest-growing cybersecurity companies, is pleased to announce the continuation of its sponsorship contract with the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team
As a sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, Kaspersky Lab has decided to bring the world famous racing team to the Hungarian capital for the first time to participate in the spectacular race on the streets of Budapest – Nagy Futam.
After four successful years in Moscow and two years in Jerusalem, Scuderia Ferrari, in partnership with Kaspersky Lab, appears on the streets of Hungarian capital.
“Budapest is the third city where Kaspersky Lab has helped bring the Scuderia Ferrari experience closer to the fans, through city racing events. We are proud to present the team to Hungarian motorsport lovers,” said Alexander Moiseev, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab Europe. “Kaspersky Lab is a long-term partner of Ferrari, whose choice for IT Security solutions has meant they can focus 100% on winning Formula One races. Our cooperation has been constantly developing and expanding.”
Driven around the historical center of Budapest, the world-beating Ferrari F10 will become one of the main attractions at Nagy Futam and will be closely followed by Formula One endurance racing followers and worldwide fans of motorsport.
“Thanks to Scuderia Ferrari and Kaspersky Lab for this great opportunity here in Budapest. It’s a nice day outside today so I think we’ll have a great show. Even as a race driver it’s great to have a change from the usual driving activities every now and then.” said Kimi Raikkonen.
“Formula One has changed in the last 15 years and we’re doing so much more online and only in the last two years it’s been increasing, so I know that the partnership with Kaspersky Lab is very important for us. I personally use the web mainly for sports and news and try to keep a low profile on social media, although I know safety is very important and it feels good to be in the safe hands of Kaspersky Lab for both Scuderia Ferrari and I.”
About the sponsorship
Kaspersky Lab first partnered with Scuderia Ferrari back in 2010, and the partnership has continued to blossom. Since the 2012 Formula One racing season, the Kaspersky Lab logo has featured on the car nose cones and sides, and on the drivers’ overalls and team uniforms.
