Singapore Airlines Extends Title Sponsorship Of Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix

The F1 drivers have been out and about in Singapore over the past few days meeting and greeting their sponsors and fans and generally enjoying the build up to the 2015 edition of the unique Singapore Nigh Race.

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel’s first engagement of the Singapore race weekend involved meeting the President of the Republic, Tony Tan. The meeting was linked to the President’s Challenge, a charitable initiative which, since 2010, has helped the State’s underprivileged children. The meeting took place at the Marina Bay Sands Ferrari Store.

On the business front Singapore Airlines have announced it will extend its title sponsorship of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix for another two years, until 2017. The Airline which is a longstanding supporter of sports in Singapore, has been the Title Sponsor of the race since 2014.

“As a strong supporter of both sports and tourism, we are excited to continue as Title Sponsor of one of the most exciting races in the F1 calendar. We look forward to further showcasing the race to the world, and helping to strengthen Singapore’s image as a world-class tourism, cultural and sporting event city,” said Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

“We are very happy to be continuing our relationship with Singapore Airlines, as one of our Global Partners. The Singapore Airlines brand fits with our other Global Partners and Formula One,” said Mr Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One Management Ltd.

"It has been a great partnership with this iconic brand and we are delighted to have Singapore Airlines extend for another two years as Title Sponsor for the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix. We look forward to jointly promoting Singapore at its very best to a global audience,” said Mr Teo Hock Seng, Chairman, Singapore GP Pte Ltd.
