Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, congratulates the Scuderia Ferrari racing team on another podium finish, the third of the 2012 Formula One season. Fernando Alonso finished the Monaco Grand Prix in third place while his team-mate Felipe Massa came home in sixth. The result moves Fernando to the top of the drivers’ championship.
Commenting on the performance, Kaspersky Lab’s Alexander Moiseev, General Manager Italy & Mediterranean, said: “We are happy to celebrate these great results with Scuderia Ferrari! We congratulate the team, and especially Fernando Alonso who is now first in the drivers’ standings. For Kaspersky Lab, sponsorship of Scuderia Ferrari’s Formula One team is not just a very successful marketing project; it’s also a source of inspiration and winning spirit for the whole company. Sharing the same values, such as innovation and best-in-class technologies, we are happy to see the Kaspersky Lab logo on the nose cones of Ferrari’s winning cars! Bravo Fernando e Forza Ferrari!”
About the sponsorship
Kaspersky Lab entered the world of motor racing in May 2010, sponsoring the AF Corse Ferrari team at the Le Mans Series 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 nose sides, will be seen at all Formula One races in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. This is part of the new expanded sponsorship agreement between Scuderia Ferrari racing team and Kaspersky Lab that was unveiled at the final Formula One Grand Prix of the 2011 season in São Paulo.
