VistaJet has extended its partnership as official supplier of private jet travel with the Scuderia Ferrari team for the second year running, and FAI Aviation Group is to provide its private jet services to McLaren Racing as part of a multi-year partnership commencing at the start of this season.
With the ever-demanding race calendar and often only days between each Grand Prix event, the teams face challenging timelines. These arrangements will support the teams in optimising travel and transfer times throughout the 2020 Formula One World Championship season.
Having raced competitively with Ferrari for many years and as an official driver in the FIA World Endurance Championship, VistaJet founder and chairman Thomas Flohr knows the demands of racing and the intense focus required to perform under such pressure: “I am incredibly proud to be supporting the most iconic and successful racing team in the world for a second year. Innovation, technology and a focus on efficiency are values we share with them. VistaJet will continue to provide the Scuderia Ferrari team with seamless travel, to ensure its focus is on what is important; the competition on the track. I am excited to see what the 2020 season holds for Sebastain Vettel, Charles Leclerc and the whole Ferrari team. Forza Ferrari.”
FAI, whose first celebrity brand ambassador is former double Formula One World Champion and McLaren driver Mika Häkkinen, will be represented on the inside of the rear wing endplate of the McLaren MCL35 race car. Chairman and founder Siegfried Axtmann states: “We are very excited to become a partner of McLaren Racing. This will enable FAI to promote its services within the Formula 1 community and continue to grow its brand.”
McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown adds: “The FAI Aviation Group is a perfect partner for McLaren Racing. Being trusted to provide services to NGOs and several government agencies underlines the quality and professionalism of the company and its people. We are proud to welcome them as partners from the 2020 season.”
