Brawn GP is pleased to announce the continuation of its partnership with Ray-Ban for a sixth successive season. Ray-Ban, the world's leading sunglasses and optical eyewear brand, entered Formula One with the team in July 2004 and the relationship has provided a powerful global platform for promoting the brand's iconic identity.

The distinctive Ray-Ban logo appears on the helmet visors of Brawn GP's race drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello and the Brawn GP team members wear Ray-Ban sunglasses from the brand's 2009 range.

Nick Fry, Chief Executive Officer of the Brawn GP team commented: "We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Ray-Ban for their sixth season of involvement in Formula One. We have enjoyed a close relationship with Ray-Ban since they joined the team during the 2004 season and look forward to continuing our work together. Jenson, Rubens and the team are all fans of Ray-Ban's distinctive styling and we hope our partnership will continue to allow Ray-Ban to reach the global Formula One audience and benefit from its association with the sport and our team."

Antonio Miyakawa, Executive Vice President Wholesale & Marketing of Luxottica Group, said: "We are extremely pleased that we will continue to share the Brawn GP team's passion and energy in Formula One. We are especially delighted to renew this partnership with our Ray-Ban brand, the global leader in sunglasses and optical frames."
