Robert W. Elliott, FedEx President Europe, Middle East & Africa said: "We are absolutely delighted with the sponsorship. The sport so closely reflects our core values of speed, reliability, technology and teamwork it is an amazing fit for us, and it is great to be associated with BMW WilliamsF1 Team, the team that will be challenging for the World Championship title in 2002."

Team Prinicipal Frank Williams remarked, "We are honoured to be able to add a truly impressive global corporation and Fortune 500 mainstay corporation to our sponsorship portfolio. For many years we have been aware of FedEx's presence in F1 and I am delighted that they have agreed to join the team for the next three years."

The signing of FedEx along with the recent announcement of PepsiCo's 7UP sponsorship means that the team enters the 2002 season in a strong commercial position.
