Thomson Reuters – the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals – is celebrating its fifteenth continuous year as a partner of Williams Martini Racing in 2014, making it one of the longest serving team partners in Williams history and one of the longest serving sponsors in Formula One.

This milestone is being celebrated this weekend at the team’s home grand prix, at Silverstone, with a new 15th anniversary Thomson Reuters logo being placed on the sidepod leading edge of the Williams Mercedes FW36 – the same location that the company’s logo first appeared on a Williams car back in 2000 on the FW22.

Speaking about the 15th anniversary of the partnership David Craig, president of Financial & Risk, at Thomson Reuters, said: “Formula One is a fast-paced, precise and technical sport in which high performance is driven by continuous innovation, critical information and insight.  These values resonate well across our industry and this is why we are proud to mark this 15th year in our relationship with Williams.”

Sir Frank Williams, Founder and Team Principal of Williams, added: “Long standing partnerships are hugely important to an independent team like Williams and we are extremely proud to have enjoyed such a strong relationship with a globally respected brand like Thomson Reuters. We have chosen the British Grand Prix to celebrate this anniversary and we’re really looking forward to hosting a number of special events over the course of the weekend to mark our decade and a half of collaboration.”   (Press Release)
