Kaspersky Lab Congratulates Fernando Alonso on the glorious win in Valencia
Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions and sponsor of Scuderia Ferrari, congratulates Fernando Alonso on his thrilling win at the European Gran Prix in Valencia.
The first-place finish not only brings further success for Scuderia Ferrari but also makes Fernando Alonso the first driver to win two races this season – the first coming earlier this year at the Grand Prix of Malaysia in Sepang. Fernando now leads the drivers’ championship with 111 points, 20 points clear of his nearest rival.
Commenting on the success of the Spaniard, Alexander Moiseev, General Manager of Kaspersky Lab Italy & Mediterranean, said: “We are really happy to be associated with Scuderia Ferrari and to have the Kaspersky Lab logo featured on the nose of the F2012. It is a legendary team which continues to produce amazing results on the track. They are devoted to the same values as us: best-of-breed technologies, constant innovation and aiming to be the leaders in their respective area. Congratulations, Fernando, and congratulations to the whole team! We’re always rooting for you!”
About the sponsorship
Kaspersky Lab entered the world of motor racing in May 2010, sponsoring the AF Corse team – involved in the Le Mans Series with Ferrari GT cars - and assuming the position of ‘Official Supplier” to Scuderia Ferrari. Half a year later Kaspersky Lab became an ‘Official Sponsor’ of the team: Kaspersky Lab’s logo appeared on Ferrari’s Formula One cars.
The companies have also released a co-branded product: Kaspersky Internet Security Special Ferrari Edition. This security solution comes with a Ferrari-style user interface and the Ferrari Virtual Academy video simulator game to align Kaspersky Lab’s best-of-breed anti-malware technologies with the world-famous image of Scuderia Ferrari.
The high-profile Kaspersky Lab logo, featured on the nose cone and on the nose sides, will be seen at all Formula One races throughout the 2012 and 2013 seasons. This is the part of the new expanded sponsorship agreement between Scuderia Ferrari racing team and Kaspersky Lab, which was unveiled at the final Formula One Grand Prix of the 2011 season in São Paulo.
