Alfa Romeo Racing has extended its existing partnership with fuel supplier PKN Orlen for a third season.
With the company’s branding featuring on the team’s entry name as well as its eagle logo incorporated into the livery of the Swiss team’s cars, PKN Orlen continues its brand-recognition deal, originally established in 2020.
Alfa Romeo Team Principal, Frederic Vasseur, commented: “We are delighted to extend our successful partnership with PKN Orlen into its third year. Their presence underlines and reinforces our resolve to be one of the most attractive teams in the sport for global brands.”
Furthermore, the collaboration deal sees former F1 driver Robert Kubica continue as a reserve driver for the team, with the organisation explaining that the ‘all-new main driver line-up’ will include Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou.
“Most importantly, we share a commitment to constant improvement, whether on track or in their business, and we are determined to keep growing together,” Vasseur added.
“Their activation campaign has been of the first order, reaching fans all over Europe and expanding access to the team and the world of Formula 1 and we can’t wait to unveil the next stages in this programme.”
The Polish petroleum firm noted that the extension is a ‘strategic’ cooperation, and follows on from its original co-title sponsorship agreement reached in 2020.
This saw PKN Orlen’s branding feature on the team’s C39 car and on all Alfa Romeo official trackside assets, whilst the tournament also gained the title of Alfa Romeo Racing Orlen.
