Few sponsors are more closely linked with Formula 1 than Mild Seven. In 2003, the Japanese brand will celebrate its tenth season in the sport. The launch of the Renault R23 in Lucerne today, Monday, 20 January, proved the ideal opportunity to announce the renewal of the partnership between Mild Seven and the Renault F1 Team for four more seasons. The team will continue to compete under the colours of Mild Seven, who will remain title sponsor. This relationship is already the longest-running current title sponsorship in Formula 1.

"The 2003 season will mark Mild Seven's tenth season in Formula One," stated Mr. Kimitsuna Kidachi, Vice President of Marketing for JT. "Our numerous successes in this category have enabled us to improve the international awareness of our company, and to become the second world-wide brand in terms of sales. The renewal of our contract with the Renault F1 Team confirms our ambition and our desire to once again win the World Championship."

In the opinion of Patrick Faure, Chairman of the Renault F1 Team, this decision represents a genuine affirmation of confidence: "With our facilities at Viry-Châtillon and Enstone, we possess a sound technical base," he commented. "The extension of our partnership with Mild Seven offers the perfect combination, providing us with both long-term financial stability and a solid partnership."
