European Minardi Cosworth is today pleased to announce that Muermans Groep will increase its commercial support of the Faenza team with immediate effect. The logo of the Dutch-based property investment company has appeared on the cockpit sides of the Minardi entries from the beginning of the 2003 season, but such has been the firm's level of satisfaction with its initial involvement in Formula One that it has decided to increase significantly the level of its branding.

Starting with this weekend's prestigious Monaco Grand Prix, the Muermans Groep logo will appear on the front wing flaps, the top of the rear wing end plates and the underside of the rear wing of the European Minardi PS03 chassis driven by Jos Verstappen and Justin Wilson.

"It's a source of considerable pride and satisfaction to everyone at European Minardi that the Muermans Groep has decided to increase its commitment to the team after joining us as a commercial partner only at the beginning of the current season," comments Minardi Team Principal, Paul Stoddart.

"I particularly want to thank Harry Muermans for his continuing personal support and enthusiasm for the team as it strives to increase its competitiveness in the demanding world of Formula One. I look forward to the day - hopefully, very soon - when we can reward that commitment with some points-scoring Grand Prix finishes."

Muermans Groep Managing Director, Harry Muermans, says, "We at Muermans Groep are happy to increase our financial support of the European Minardi team. We hope this extra backing will help to push the team in the right direction and that results will follow. I wish everyone at Minardi, and especially the drivers, Jos and Justin, all the best for tomorrow's race."
