McLaren has announced that they will be sponsored by Reemtsma, a German tobacco company with annoual revenues in excess of US$5 billion, for the next five Formula One seasons. The cars will carry the colours of West, Reemtsma's premier cigarette brand.

The sponsorship is worth some US$195 million over the five years, an estimated increase of some 30 to 40 per cent from the Marlboro sponsorship McLaren has carried from 1974 to this season.
