DuPont de Nemours is extending its partnership with the BMW Sauber F1 Team and will be supporting the team as an Official Supplier with immediate effect. DuPont became a Promotional Partner of the team in May 2006, since when it has worked in close collaboration with the BMW Sauber F1 Team on research and development.

BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen: "We are delighted with this extended involvement and with the research exchange we have enjoyed so far with DuPont. We will continue to steadily develop our strategic partnership."

"Through innovation and science, DuPont helps the BMW Sauber F1 Team keep their drivers and team safer, as well as increase the cars' looks and performance," says Ian Hudson, President DuPont Europe, Middle East and Africa.

"Highly visible applications - such as fire-resistant suits made out of DuPont Nomex®, or high-performance coatings and paints - and many other DuPont materials and applications used throughout the car demonstrate DuPont's position as a strong partner to the automotive industry. We are looking forward to extending our cooperation with the BMW Sauber F1 Team on many fronts in the future."

DuPont is a science-based enterprise. Founded in 1802, it has traditionally drawn on scientific research for long-term problem-solving that will improve the quality, safety and health of people's lives the world over. DuPont is active in more than 70 countries and offers a wide portfolio of innovative products and services for such sectors as agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communication, safety and protection, construction and housing, transport and clothing.
