PPG continues F1 partnership

For a 13th consecutive year, PPG has renewed its sponsorship agreement with Williams Martini Racing, one of the top performing F1 teams.

PPG Automotive Refinish has devised a customised paint system that aims to make the new Williams FW38 car lighter and faster than ever. The two FW38s will be driven this season by Felipe Massa who has so far achieved one pole position and four podium finishes and Valtteri Bottas who has achieved seven podiums in the last two seasons.

Sir Frank Williams, Williams’ founder and team principal said, ‘We have a very stable team going into 2016, with Felipe and Valtteri teaming up for a third successive season. They work well together and both have the ideal blend of speed and consistency.’

The recent test days held in Barcelona were attended by 120 PPG clients from around Europe.

‘The Williams Martini Racing team is continually improving its performance and we are delighted to be a part of its success’, said Danni Aiken, UK & IE marketing solutions and propositions manager, PPG Refinish. ‘We are really pleased to continue this great long standing partnership and look forward to seeing the team in action this year again.’
