Singapore Airlines to sponsor Grand Prix
15 April 2014 – Singapore Airlines has signed a deal to become the title sponsor of the Singapore Grand Prix.
The company replaces telecommunications company SingTel, which had sponsored the race since 2008.
"We are thrilled to be taking up the title sponsorship of one of the most exciting races on the F1 calendar, and we are especially pleased to be doing so in the lead-up to Singapore's 50th birthday next year," Mr Goh Choon Phong, CEO of Singapore Airlines, said of the agreement, which is initially scheduled to run for two seasons.
"Singapore Airlines has always supported the development of sports and tourism. Through our involvement with the world's first F1 night race we will be able to enhance both for the benefit of Singaporeans and visitors alike."
The 2014 running of the Singapore Grand Prix takes place on the weekend of September 20-21.
