Lotus Formula One Team will partner with Alpinestars as the world’s premier performance motorsport apparel and footwear company extends its involvement in F1 by signing a multi-year partnership agreement with the team.
Alpinestars will provide performance racing products and high-level technical support for two of F1’s most exciting drivers; 2007 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen and rising star Romain Grosjean.
Lotus F1 Team’s test and reserve drivers – as well as the team’s mechanics and technical staff – will also benefit from Alpinestars technical expertise and support; both on track at grands prix and at Alpinestars’ product development facilities in Northern Italy and California.
Eric Boullier, Team Principal, Lotus F1 Team:
“Alpinestars is an internationally recognized and respected brand so it’s fantastic for the team to agree [to] a partnership. The support and proactive approach that Alpinestars brings will benefit the team in many ways. I’m looking forward to seeing our drivers in their ultra-lightweight, safe and stylish new race attire alongside the ultra-lightweight, safe and stylish E21.” (Lotus)
