Tag Heuer have this morning confirmed that they have entered into partnership with Red Bull Racing from 2016 onwards. At this time it has not been confirmed if this partnership will impact the existing Mclaren partnership with the Swiss Watch Maker.
In an interview with L’HEBDO, (documented below) CEO Jean- Claude Biver when questioned around the move commented
“yes, we have Red Bull Racing F1 for next season. This is a young team, dynamic, go-getter, perfectly in keeping with the strategy of Tag Heuer”(translated)
Whilst no formal comment has been issued from Red Bull Racing it should be presumed that the existing Casio relationship will not be extended. The Tag Heuer partnership further demonstrates Red Bull’s commitment to Formula One.
Further updates on this development will be posted here as they become available.
