The partnership demonstrates America Movil’s commitment to Sahara Force India following the most successful season in the team’s history. The association also reinforces the shared ambition to promote Formula One in Mexico and capitalise on the excitement surrounding the 2015 Mexican Grand Prix.
America Movil will also play an integral role in the presentation of the team’s new look for 2015 with a car livery unveiling scheduled for late January in Mexico City. The event will engage fans and media at the iconic Soumaya Museum close to the head office of America Movil and will be streamed online allowing fans around the world to share the experience.
Dr Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director of Sahara Force India: “Our partnership with America Movil has proved to be very successful and together we have celebrated some special results. With Formula One returning to Mexico in 2015, our association will take on greater significance as we embrace the country’s huge passion for the sport. It’s also fitting that we will launch our 2015 season in Mexico City and I wish to thank Telmex, Telcel and Claro for their support in making this event possible.”
Carlos Slim, Chairman of the Board of Directors of America Movil: “We are glad to renew our relationship with Sahara Force India. It has been a great experience for everyone at America Movil to see the team celebrate its most successful season ever with Checo Perez being a big part of it. I know the team and Checo have even bigger ambitions for 2015 and with the return of Mexico to the calendar a great interest in the team, and the sport as a whole, through the country will come. Everyone at America Movil is proud to be a part of that project.”
