Oerlikon logo to be on Sauber engine covers
25 January 2012 – Sauber has announced an extended link-up with Oerlikon, whose logos will be displayed on the cars' engine covers this season. Now labeled a ‘Premium Partner’ of the Hinwil-based squad, the machine specialists will also see their brand advertised on team gear and equipment in and around the garage.
“We have long held Oerlikon Balzers in esteem as a technology partner supplying special coatings for high-stress components,” explains Team Principal Peter Sauber.
“In 2011 we began to further expand our partnership with Oerlikon in the interests of improving our company’s environmental performance and we can see great potential for numerous know-how transfer possibilities in the future.”
Once again, Sauber are powered by Ferrari engines in 2012.
