Brawn GP is pleased to confirm a one-race partnership with Qatar Telecom for the final race of the 2009 Formula One season, the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which takes place at the spectacular Yas Marina circuit this weekend.
Qatar Telecom (Qtel) is the leading telecommunications company in Qatar, with a presence in 17 countries, and their sponsorship of the new World Champions Brawn GP will see the Qtel branding on the rear wing, chassis and cockpit sides of the Brawn-Mercedes cars of Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello throughout the weekend.
Qatar Telecom's partnership with Brawn GP is part of their ambitious sponsorship programme to maximise exposure of the Qtel brand through innovative campaigns. With Formula One attracting a passionate following in Qatar, the new partnership has generated a great deal of excitement in the state as the Gulf region gears up to host the final race.
Ross Brawn, Team Principal, Brawn GP said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Qatar Telecom this weekend as Formula One returns to the Gulf for the final race of the 2009 season. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is set to be a fantastic end to what has been a very exciting season of racing with a very impressive new venue at the Yas Marina Circuit. With both World Championships secured, Brawn GP will be looking for a good result in Abu Dhabi to round off the season and we look forward to welcoming our new partners at Qatar Telecom to the team over the weekend."
Dr Nasser Marafih, CEO, Qtel, said: "Qtel's profile is increasing across the Gulf region and our ambitious agreement with the new World Champions Brawn GP is the ideal partnership to drive awareness of our brand to a new level. Qtel is proud to be associated with this fantastically successful team and we plan to use our sponsorship to reach out to a global audience of millions who will be watching the final race of the season take place in Abu Dhabi this weekend."
