MAC Tools will continue to provide hand tools for the team's use at Grands Prix, testing and at the factory, however it will also be stepping up its involvement and will have on-car branding on the rear-wing endplates. The partnership will commence immediately and the MAC Tools logo will be seen on the B*A*R Honda 006 from this weekend's Australian Grand Prix.
