The Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team announced on Wednesday that they have extended their partnership with water treatment company BWT.
The partnership, which dates back to 2017 when the Silverstone based outfit were known as Eacing Point will see BWT branding on the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One cars driven by four time world champion Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll.
The team’s 2021 car will be revealed on March 3. Speaking about the partnership, BWT CEO, Andreas Weibenacher said:
Martin’s return to Formula One. Having seen the team enjoy such a strong 2020 season, we believe the years ahead are full of great promise and we want to continue supporting this team’s journey towards the front of the grid. As well as success on the track, we will work with Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team to achieve its objectives away from the track by becoming more sustainable. It means continuing the work from last year to cut down the use of disposable bottles at the track, minimise plastic waste and facilitate the local treatment and consumption of water. Additionally, we are looking forward to starting cooperation with more people in the F1 community who are also convinced of our mission to fight for a plastic-free planet and who are ready to spread this mission to people around the globe.”
Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team Principal and CEO Otmar Szafnauer stated:
“Our friends at BWT have been loyal supporters of this team and I am delighted they have chosen to be a partner of Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team. BWT will support our efforts to become more sustainable in all areas of the business, but especially in our trackside operations – a goal that marries up with Formula One’s own sustainability objectives. This is a strong and historic partnership entering an important new era, and we are all excited to see what we can achieve together.”
