Williams tick on with Oris
17 February 2014 – Williams has renewed its sponsorship deal with watch maker Oris ahead of the 2014 F1 season, although there is still no news on the rumoured tie-up with alcoholic drink brand, Martini.
This year will mark Oris’ twelfth full season as an ‘official partner’ of the Grove-based outfit and the Oris logo will feature in a new position on the nose of the new FW36. Oris logos will also continue on the kit worn by team personnel, including the drivers’ overalls, gloves and helmets.
“Oris feel like a part of the family having been a partner with us for twelve years now, and I'm delighted to announce that this relationship will continue once again for 2014,” said team principal and founder, Sir Frank Williams. “We have enjoyed a successful partnership because our brands are highly complementary: we are family run businesses with a strong heritage, a history of innovation, and a desire to embrace new technologies. Strong partnerships are the lifeblood of an independent team like Williams and the continued support of Oris will help us fight for success this season.”
Williams also confirmed a multi-year partnership agreement with global lifestyle protection insurer, Genworth, last week.
