Opinion – Fantastic to see Mclaren bringing another new partner to the world of Formula One. In what has been a challenging year for the team, this announcement hopefully marks an upturn in fortunes. Jenson Button was present at the sponsor presentation with significant Chandon branding across the chest of his overalls, this along with the sizable on car branding suggest the team is of significant value to the team. The press release suggests the branding will commence from 2016 onwards although it may appear as early as the Russian Grand Prix.
The announcement of this agreement serves to cement the credibility of the Mclaren brand demonstrating commercial partners are taking a long term view on the success of the team. Chandon joining the team should encourage other partners to do the same.
