Mobile devices producer BlackBerry and Mercedes signed a new partnership agreement. They announced it today before team`s launch in Jerez.
On the first Mercedes photos which were revealed a few hours before launch, we could see a BlackBerry logo in the front of new Mercedes F1 W04. Producer`s logo will be also on the both sides of Mercedes car and on drivers race suits. Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton will also use BlackBerries – the Englishman has already taken some photos of his team mate in Mercedes car.
“On the day that our new Silver Arrow, the F1 W04, is launched, we are very pleased to announce our partnership with BlackBerry. We are looking forward to embracing the new BlackBerry 10 platform at both a technical and operational level, as well as collaborating with the team at BlackBerry to bring new mobile innovation to Mercedes AMG Petronas. It is especially pleasing to launch this exciting partnership today as our latest Silver Arrow takes to the track with BlackBerry branding.” – said Mercedes principal, Ross Brawn.
